Washington, DC - Huckabee's traditional political Season's Greetings video card to the nation caught flack from his critics this week, which was then picked up by the mainstream media. Apparently, the controversy is over his alleged violation of the church and state doctrine of the Constitution. In fact, the root cause of the controversy is that he used the message to issue a fatwa (an Islamic edict) to the faithful, instructing them to vote exclusively for him.
What is not being widely reported in the mainstream media is that Huckabee, just before the videotaping of the Season's Greetings promotional spot was personally introduced to the 1970s recording artist, Cat Stevens, who converted to Islam.
Sometime during their brief conversation, say critics, Stevens apparently and instantly converted Huckabee to Islam and granted him the status of Iman, an Islamic cleric.
"So you see," said a Huckabee staff member. "There is no way that cross that appeared over his right shoulder was intentional."
Huckabee's office assures that although, he is now a Muslim, he remains respectful of the great prophet, Jesus Christ and he is personally offended by the very implication that he would stoop so low as to use specific non-commercial religious icons to get votes for that reason alone. Not when he has so much more to offer the American people and other infidels.
