Cut out the middleman, Huck...

Mike Huckabee (Likud-AR)
And just run for the Knesset instead of the White House. It's becoming increasingly clear which nation is at the forefront of Huckabee's mind when contemplating "national interests."

Mike Huckabee, on his 15th trip to Israel, weighs in on the situation in Egypt -- and essentially comes out against the pro-democracy protesters:
"[T]he events of the past few days in Egypt have created a very tenuous situation, not just for Egypt, not just for the Middle East, but for the entire world, and the destabilization of that nation has the potential of cascading across the globe."
According to another Israeli newspaper, Huckabee also told the Knesset, "the situation could threaten the world and all those who seek peace and security."
I never realized that threatening the Israeli government with (further) regional isolation is equivalent to "threatening the world." Speaks volumes that the Huckster, a legitimate contender for the Presidency of the United States, views them as one and the same. Better for the U.S. to throw its lot in with a despot who jails his opposition--while it occupies and/or bombs several other Muslim nations--than risk nervousness in a nuclear regime with he most sophisticated military in the region.

What could go wrong?
