GOP '08 Candidate Huckabee Insanely Compares Abortion to the Holocaust

I'm speechless (and for me, that's saying something):
Speaking before a gathering of Christian conservative voters, GOP presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee said legalized abortion in the United States was a holocaust.
Not the best analogy, Mike. "Offended" doesn't even begin to describe what I'm feeling.
"Sometimes we talk about why we're importing so many people in our workforce," the former Arkansas governor said. "It might be for the last 35 years, we have aborted more than a million people who would have been in our workforce had we not had the holocaust of liberalized abortion under a flawed Supreme Court ruling in 1973."
Mike Hack-abee, I don't know where to begin. To equate the right to choose and all the circumstances under which that might be necessary, to a holocaust...and all its implications? That's beyond wrong.

And to reason (if one can call it that) that immigrants are taking jobs as a result of abortions?
