Mike Huckabee has been a BFF of the Duggar family for a long time. In 2008, the family publicly endorsed him in his failed bid for the presidency, and when news of Josh Duggar's sister-touching broke, Huckabee was the first wingnut to step up and say that Josh's crimes were "‘inexcusable,’ but that doesn’t mean ‘unforgivable.’" Because Jesus forgives everybody, even Huck's son, for murdering that dog, and even the homosexuals, as long as they stop doing gay stuff!


But this week, things seem a bit different. TPM reports that suddenly, the TLC reality stars are MISSING from the "I Like Mike" section of Huckabee's campaign website:

The Duggar endorsements enjoyed top billing on the campaign site's "I Like Mike" sidebar on May 22, the day Huckabee issued a full-throated defense of the family following the publication of a 2006 police report that showed the Duggar's eldest son, Josh, was investigated for molesting five underage girls when he was a teenager.

TPM says an archived version of the website from Monday features the Duggars, still liking Mike very much. So what changed? Did Huckabee perhaps see an advance copy of Megyn Kelly's Duggar interview, where she threw them softball questions, and the Duggars STILL managed to damn themselves, by talking? Did the Huckabee campaign do some internal polling and find that, shockingly, the American constituency in support of defending kid-touchers is quite small? Is there MORE gross news about to come out about this ever-so-wholesome family? Did they kill a dog with Mike Huckabee's son? It would be irresponsible not to wildly speculate.

As of Wednesday, Huckabee didn't seem to rule out the Duggars joining him on the campaign trail. Buzzfeed reports that Huckabee was asked if the Duggars would share the stage with him, presumably to shore up his credentials as the wingnuttiest family values candidate of all, and he said, "I don’t know, it will be up to them. Ask them, I don’t know." SHRUG! How could Mike Huckabee possibly know who's campaigning with him?

Guess we'll find out soon whether the Duggar clan will help Huckabee lock up the coveted sister-diddler vote. He's probably just waiting for the whole thing to blow over, so America can go back to waiting excitedly for the birth of Michelle Duggar's 20th victim gift from God, at which point all will be forgotten, praise Jesus.
