John Perr has compiled two terrific lists detailing the dangerously extreme beliefs and behaviors of current Republican frontrunner, Mike Huckabee. This is a candidacy that seems destined for imminent implosion, but never underestimate the Republicans' ability to promote to the top the worst of all possible candidates. Keep these lists handy, just in case.

I've blockquoted the outlines, but Perr provides well-sourced, detailed explanations for each.

Top 10 Moments in Mike Huckabee's extremism:

1. Huckabee Calls for the Quarantine of AIDS Victims

2. Huckabee Enables the Politically-Motivated Parole of Repeat Rapist/Murderer

3. Huckabee Offers Faith-Based Pardons

4. Huckabee Undermines the Teaching of Evolution

5. Huckabee Speaks for God
