Lessons For Presidential Candidates #1

I will try to make this a running thing. You know, since I am going to all the trouble of numbering it and all. And I think it bears mentioning due to the shear stupidity of the story. Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee needs to have that old conversation with his son about the birds and the bees, and "walking on a plane with a loaded gun". Now, he has a concealed carry permit and all, and apparently this form of crime only carries with it a $100 fine or some such crap. But really? Who does that, who (especially if daddy wants to run the free world) walks through airport security with a friggin' gun. Now, he says it was an accident and he picked up the bag and brought without knowing the gun was within. That seems sensible. If your retarded! Can a human being with the right to control their own life really be so gun happy that he just forgets where he put his gun, and extra loaded clip? Now I don't think there was any malice in this obviously, I just think this kinda guy should be required to wear a special hat of some color, so we can clearly identify who these people are.
