Look unto the bookshelf, Paul is dead
Mike Huckabee ran a tv ad wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. Boring you say? Well, some people can find something interesting in anything. Namely, this extremely controversial image appeared without the intention of the Huckabees ( according to them ):
That glowing cross is actually a bookshelf ( see the lights sitting on it? ). Now, some apparently believe Mike actually staged the tree and the entire set around the fact that by partially obscuring the bookshelf with a Christmas Tree, it appears to be a cross. Since it’s not good enough to go running around SAYING he’s a Christian, he obviously needed props to prove it.
Me? I think it’s merely what he says it is, a bookshelf. However, I like his response much, much, better:
“I will confess this: If you play the spot backwards it says, ‘Paul is dead. Paul is dead.”‘
Score one for Mike. The ad is meaningless to me. The response priceless.
