    but he is still better than his brother, Fay, an optometrist that Gov. Mike Huckabee appointed to head the Arkansas Dept of Health. Fay lost his bid for the Senate just a month before his appointment largely because of a TV interview where  he explained his opposition to abortions being available for rape victims:

    In his experience as a doctor (he was an optometrist), he found that it wasn't possible for a woman to get pregnant if she was really raped because there were "juices" secreted during real rape that prevented pregnancy. Therefore, if a woman got pregnant, she was really "asking for it" and enjoyed it, so it wasn't rape.

    He spent three years cutting departments and services, giving sinecures to his buddies and nearly destroying the Health Department. They even quit giving flu shots poor to children and seniors for a while. Finally even God couldn't take it any longer and dropped a building on him.

    The reason they were the good old days: we were neither good nor old.
