Baby Jesus is either crying or laughing or laughing so hard he's crying after Mike Huckabee attempted an obvious pander to a 7 year old to only end up later being pwned by the youngster.
“Who is your favorite author?” Aleya Deatsch, 7, of West Des Moines asked Mr. Huckabee in one of those posing-like-a-shopping-mall-Santa moments.
Mr. Huckabee paused, then said his favorite author was Dr. Seuss.
In an interview afterward with the news media, Aleya said she was somewhat surprised. She thought the candidate would be reading at a higher level.
“My favorite author is C. S. Lewis,” she said. (source)
Mike Huckabee's foreign policy indicated enough naiveté, but this - words escape me.
