"Goofy," you say?

Former Arkansas governor and B.S. in Miracles graduate Mike Huckabee, who won Louisiana's Republican primary this last weekend, thinks the Louisiana primary system is...well...goofy. From the T-P:

"The state party chairman sent out a letter saying don't bother," Huckabee said before a roundtable with reporters.

Huckabee defeated McCain in Louisiana, 43 to 42 percent. But under state Republican Party rules, none of the 20 delegates up for grabs are awarded unless a candidate gets 50 percent of the popular vote.

"It's goofy," Huckabee said. "Well, it's Louisiana."
This, from a man who believes that evolution doesn't exist and that people infected with HIV should be quarantined.

The irony does not escape me.

BTW, folks, the vast majority of Darwinists have never argued that humans descend from primates.

Huckabee does make a point, though, as our friend Damien points out:

The fact that "Well, it's Louisiana" is one of more damning dismissals someone can make says more about Louisiana than it does Huckabee.

The system is goofy, though. Louisiana Republicans... after participating in party caucuses and primaries will still have to watch as the state party officials choose the candidate they want... regardless of all the rather pointless voting.

And Democrats have Sooper Dooper Delegates. The whole thing is a mess.

Maybe they'll change it before the next election.

Point taken - the system is all kinds of farked up (which might be part of why I'm still registered as an absentee voter in Florida).

Regardless, the man majored in miracles, so I have a hard time finding anything credible in any of his points.
