Huckabee Thinks Women Should "Graciously Submit" to Their Husbands

You've already probably got a long list of reasons why you think Mike Huckabee is way too scary to vote for, but just in case you need another one:

"In August of 1998, Huckabee was one of 131 signatories to a full page USA Today Ad which declared: "I affirm the statement on the family issued by the 1998 Southern Baptist Convention." What was in the family statement from the SBC? "A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ."
The ad wasn't just a blanket, "we support the SBC statement," but rather highlighted details. The ad Huckabee signed specifically said of the SBC family statement: "You are right because you called wives to graciously submit to their husband's sacrificial leadership."
Talk about a major EEWWW! Someone remind me again what century this is...

UPDATE via GottaLaff: Huckabee Trails All Leading Democrats

Huck's in the muck and outta luck:
Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee has gone from being a virtual unknown to being in a virtual tie with Rudy Giuliani in recent poll results.
Despite Huckabee's surge to the front of the GOP pack, a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll released Tuesday shows that Huckabee would lose in a head-to-head match up with Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, or John Edwards.
