Please do not choose the following video for the upcoming GOP debates.
If you ask Mike Huckabee this question, it just might end his political career, as well as showing the millions who watch the debate just how lightweight the questions the mainstream media usually asks are. So, to avoid you actually doing both a public service and your job, I urge you not to select this video. Maybe the snowman has another probing question or something.
It concerns Mike Huckabee's strong support for illegal immigration. In 2003, on a visit to Mexico, he asked Vicente Fox to establish a consulate in Arkansas. Huckabee even arranged discount office space in a state office: just $1 per year.
Since the consulate opened earlier this year, it's passed out countless "Matricula Consular" ID cards to illegal aliens. Those cards help illegal aliens send billions of dollars back home, helping to prop up the corrupt Mexican government. And, their consul even encouraged civic leaders to advocate for illegal immigration.
Did I mention that Arkansas is home to major poultry processing and other firms that are widely believed to employ large numbers of illegal workers?
Please send CNN's Political Director Sam Feist an email urging him to only select the easiest, lightest-weight questions possible, so we can be entertained: sam.feist *at* cnn.com. More snowmen, please!
