This campaign lawn sign in Des Moines, Iowa, just informed me of some breaking news: God has endorsed Mike Huckabee. I knew that he attributed his surge in the polls to divine providence, saying, “There’s only one explanation for it, and it’s not a human one. It’s the same power that helped a little boy with two fish and five loaves feed a crowd of 5,000 people.” And now God has endorsed Huckabee. Judging from the Christian rock song I just heard on the radio that says, “People, get ready/ Jesus is coming/ Soon we’ll be going home/ People, get ready/ Jesus is coming/ To take from the world his own.” This endorsement could seriously help Mr. Huckabee, at least in Iowa.
