Christopher Hitchens destroys Mike Huckabee today in this piece on Slate.com. Speaking of Article VI of the constitution:

However, what Article VI does not do, and was never intended to do, is deny me the right to say, as loudly as I may choose, that I will on no account vote for a smirking hick like Mike Huckabee, who is an unusually stupid primate but who does not have the elementary intelligence to recognize the fact that this is what he is. My right to say and believe that is already guaranteed to me by the First Amendment. And the right of Huckabee to win the election and fill the White House with morons like himself is unaffected by my expression of an opinion.

Why did they erase my comment just because I tried to sign in as Janna and not John?

The First Amendment alone is enough to make America the greatest country in the world -- and it's just ONE of our fabulous liberties ... liberties proclaimed by our Constitution, but PRESERVED by the passionate exercise of the First Amendment by citizens who CARE. God bless America!
