Huckabee Claims Jesus Endorses Huckabee

What he said:

STUDENT: Recent polls show you surging… What do you attribute this surge to?

HUCKABEE: There’s only one explanation for it, and it’s not a human one. It’s the same power that helped a little boy with two fish and five loaves feed a crowd of five thousand people. (Applause) That’s the only way that our campaign can be doing what it’s doing. And I’m not being facetious nor am I trying to be trite. There literally are thousands of people across this country who are praying that a little will become much, and it has. And it defies all explanation, it has confounded the pundits. And I’m enjoying every minute of them trying to figure it out, and until they look at it, from a, just experience beyond human, they’ll never figure it out. And it’s probably just as well. That’s honestly why it’s happening.

Does this mean that if Huckabee doesn’t win, Jesus has no power?

Seriously, dude.  That’s pretty arrogant, what you said.

Joe Carter, Huckabee’s e-press guy:

Let me clarify, while Governor Huckabee endorses Jesus, he certainly isn’t saying that Jesus endorses his candidacy.

No, he just said that Jesus is responsible for the surge in the polls.  Which means that Jesus prefers Huckabee to the other candidates.  Which is, you know, like an endorsement.
