I was pondering what Mike Huckabee might do if he were to win the Presidency. I mean after the shocked look wears off. One thing I know he will do is to select a cabinet, and there are some folks that would be prime candidates for his theocracy. Here is how I see his cabinet picks playing out:
- Secretary of Defense – I see Kenneth Copeland taking over here. I have heard his sermons, and I tell you he has a handle on militant speech like no other. It could be a very “Onward Christian Soldiers” kind of approach. He has a good grasp on reality and could be a great leader in times of crisis. Here is a quote:
“Heaven has a north and a south and an east and a west. Consequently, it must be a planet.” – Kenneth Copeland
- Secretary of the Treasury – Dave Ramsey. I would be excited about this one. He would take all of the credit cards from the other cabinet members, cut them up, and make President Mike get a paper route and deliver pizzas until the national debt was paid off. It would be interesting to see what a debt snowball system looks like on a national scale. Pay off your smallest debt first, say…Romania, then the next smallest, you know…like Latvia, and so on and so on until you finally pay off the 4 trillion dollars. All of the people of America would be eating rice and beans for thirty seven years, but doggonit’, we would pay off those loans. You go, Dave.
- Attorney General – I think that Huckabee would go with Kenneth Hagin here, because, hey, another Kenneth. The problem is that Hagin would never get through the Congressional approval process because, in fact, he died in 2003. Huck would say “Shucks!” and snap his fingers once, then he would pick Benny Hinn, because he represents the kind of sincerity that is needed in the office of the Attorney General. Here is a quote:
I know me, and those close to me know me. But sadly, the outside world thinks I’m some kind of a crook. – Benny Hinn
Well, I have covered the important positions. I haven’t figured out how Rush Limbaugh will play in to it all yet. If you have any others, please feel free to let me know. It would be an interesting transition into televangalistic governance. Unfortunately for my carefully crafted list, McCain is going to win and we won’t get a chance to see what happens. Shucks.
But at least the Limbaugh thing won’t matter, since I don’t see him getting a cabinet position in the McCain White House anyway.
P.S. – In case you are interested, here is a sneak peek at the first cabinet meeting in the Huckabee administration,,,
