Does Mike Huckabee know his Bible? I can't believe I didn't catch this, but Frank Lockwood did.

Huckabee describes other elders of the social-conservative movement, many of whom meet in private as part of an organization called the Arlington Group, as "more enamored with the process, the political strategies, and the party hierarchy than with the simple principles that had originally motivated the Founders." Later, Huckabee writes, "I lamented that so many people of faith had moved from being prophetic voices - like Naaman, confronting King David in his sin and saying, ?Though art the man!' - to being voices of patronage, and saying to those in power, ?You da' man!' "

It's the Prophet Nathan who confronts King David, (2 Samuel 12:7). Naaman, on the other hand, is "a mighty man of valour" (2 Kings 5:1-9) who suffered from leprosy.
