Beavis and Beaver.

“Most of us in this room truly believe that America was better off when it was more about ‘Leave it to Beaver’ than ‘Beavis and Butthead.'” — Republican Presidential Candidate and Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, playing for the Religious Right Vote.

Pining for one television series over another is par for the course with this crowd. Witness:

“We need a nation closer to the Waltons than the Simpsons” — George Herbert Walker Bush, 1992.

Which spurred the production team at the Simpsons to quickly throw up for the opening credits a respone with Bart saying, “Hey, we’re just like the Waltons. We’re praying for an end to the depression, too.”

Though Huckabee has the advantage of a symmetry between “Beaver” and “Beavis”. Working against him is the fact that the show has not had an original episode since 1997. Huckabee’s next act might as well be railing against that there Heavy Metal Music. Also working against him is that Butthead would respond to Huckabee with “Hee hee hee. He said ‘Beaver.'”

By the way, Mike Huckabee is not going to nominated for the Presidency. A recent Survey USA poll for the state of Arkansas, and name recognition is no problem for Huckabee here, showed Hillary Clinton beating the man. And if Hillary — the Northern Eltitist Liberal — is beating the guy in his Southern Home State, what the hell is the point? So, cross him off your list. And if you have a list, what is wrong with you?
