Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee is known as an ordained Baptist minister and Fox News television personality. Here's the Republican's take on guns, immigration and more, in his own words. (Julie Percha/The Washington Post)

2.) Twerking, by Miley Cyrus. "Shameless and tasteless display of...quite ordinary private parts." (2015)

17.) This list, which is an annotated catalog of things and people that Huckabee has over the last four decades decried as unwise, unhealthy, un-conservative, un-Biblical or un-American. It runs to 81 items. Which is not all of them. But it's enough to show the risk of a life spent passing moral judgments for political gain. "Governor is hard at work on the campaign trail today, talking to the people of Iowa about issues that are important to them...If you have a question about that, please let me know." (2015, from a spokeswoman for Huckabee's  2016 presidential campaign spokeswoman, describing why Huckabee would not talk about the list.)

Huckabee (laughing, mock-offended): "I just don't want to hear that." (2015).
