Wildmon Endorses Huckabee

Well, I may have been wrong about Huckabee getting ignored by fundagelicals because he isn't mean enough. Don Wildmon of the American Family Association, one of the premiere homophobic operations out there, has now endorsed him. Wildmon is no rock star on the Christian Right like Robertson or Dobson, but he does own 200 radio stations and claims 3 million online supporters. He made it clear that he was speaking only for himself and not the AFA or any other group with which he's associated. For a sampling of the wit and wisdom of Wildmon and the AFA check out the Media Matters archives.

On the other hand, Paul Weyrich, one of the founders of the modern Religious Right, endorsed Romney. He dismissed Huckabee as someone who "Every time you turn around, he's taking the wrong stand on a different issue." Weyrich wasn't specific, and I have no idea what he's talking about.

Let's see how many more of the usual suspects support Huckabee. I suspect not many.
