God Quits the Mike Huckabee Fan Club
When Mike Huckabee’s fortunes were rising, he attributed his success to a prayer campaign by his supporters and the subsequent intercession of God on his behalf:
There’s only one explanation for it, and it’s not a human one. It’s the same power that helped a little boy with two fish and five loaves feed a crowd of 5,000 people. And that’s the only way that our campaign could be doing what it’s doing. And I’m not being facetious nor am I trying to be trite. There literally are thousands of people across this country who are praying that a little will become much. And it has. And it defies all explanation, it has confounded the pundits and I’m enjoying every minute of their trying to figure it out and until they look at from a – just, experience beyond human, they’ll never figure it out. That’s probably just as well. That’s honestly why it’s happening.
But wait. In the January 8 New Hampshire primary, Mike Huckabee has come in a distant third with just about 12 percent of the vote. There’s only one consistent conclusion Mike Huckabee can draw here: God has quit the Mike Huckabee Fan Club.
