Back in September, with Election Day drawing near, future Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback finally gave in to pressure and distanced himself from Lou Engle, the praying-in-tongues loon behind Kansas City-based TheCall.

Engle and Brownback had been roommates for a time, and Engle had since revealed himself to be a gay-bashing kook. Especially troublesome was his support for Ugandan legislation that would have made being gay punishable by life in prison or even death -- not the type of views an American politician needs to be associated with, as Mike Huckabee may eventually find out.

Huckabee is mulling another run for president, and according a story on Politico yesterday, "he will unquestionably be a force to be reckoned with in the fight for the nomination."
