Huckabee, Parole for a Murderer/Rapist, and CDS

This at McClatchy is very interesting.

Mike Huckabee seems to have played a role in the release from prison of a man who had raped a distant cousin of Bill Clinton. That man soon went on to murder two women in Missouri. And, in fact, he already had a record of murder and rape before his assault on Clinton's cousin.

This from the Arkansas Times makes for extremely disturbing reading. Apparently Huckabee was heavily influenced by a couple of characters (Jay Cole and Steve Dunleavy) suffering from severe CDS who claimed that the rape of Clinton's cousin did not happen. In fact, Huckabee himself comes off as rather a nut in this piece.

Among the many astonishing things here is this: that the CDS people--who spend so much of their time fabricating stories about rape and murder by the Clintons--end up aiding and abetting actual murders and rapists.

Not to worry, folks. We of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy will torpedo him.

The last thing this country needs is a twit like Mike (Willie Horton) Dukakis or, God forbid, Jimmy Carter.

What's interesting to me is the degree to which (as Kevin Drum points out here: ) this is a direct result of the CDS you mention, Winston.

As was the crazily destructive impeachment.

As was Bush's neglect of terrorism pre-9/11.

As was (from a certain perspective) the invasion of Iraq.

As was, it seems more and more, almost every stupid thing done by the right for nearly 20 years now.
