Mike Huckabee Is Making Sense

… sort of.  He defends Obama on the Wright issue, but adds, “It’s interesting to me that there are some people on the left who are having to be very uncomfortable with what … Wright said, when they all were all over a Jerry Falwell, or anyone on the right who said things that they found very awkward and uncomfortable, years ago.”

Wright is uninfluential because of his political views— after they’re aired in public, a week-long news attack on Obama ensues.  Obama instantly criticizes the views his revered expressed.

Whereas John Hagee, Jerry Falwell, Rod Parsley, Jerry Falwell, Franklin Graham, et al are influential because of their political views.

There is no moral equivalence here.

One party is pleased to cozy up to people who believe crazy things about the Middle East and whether gays should be stoned or merely arrested.  The other party distances itself from the extreme statements of its pastors.
