Mike Huckabee criticizes Natalie Portman's single motherhood

He's right, but... Really, this battle was fought and lost generations ago. There is supposed to be a quote, attributed to George Bernard Shaw, along the lines of "Morals are for the middle class. The rich don't need them and the poor can't afford them."
It'll take more than scolding by values politicians to rebuild the family in America. Still and all, even though I know that "life happens", I can't help but wince in disgust when I hear a single mother, of any income level, go on about how much they care for their children. They would give them anything, anything at all, except for a father who's married to the mother.
