I know that Republican Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has been the subject of debate in Catholic circles and blogs - with supporters and detactors - but something he said should raise a smile among Chestertonians.
In his victory speech, Huckabee loosely quoted Chesterton: "A true soldier fights not because he hates those who are in front of him but because he loves those who are behind him."
(Actual GKC quote: "The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.")
Huckabee went on to say, "Running for office is not hating those who are in front of you but loving those who are behind you."
When was the last time a U.S. politician cited Chesterton?
