All Choked Up

Former Republican presidential contender Mike Huckabee recently used the Heimlich Maneuver to save a man from choking. Huckabee, a former Baptist minister, is deeply religious and was a darling of Evangelical Christians during the early primaries.

That's why this business of saving the guy's life is so disturbing. If the man was choking on a piece of food, wasn't it God's will that he do so? Perhaps the good lord was trying to kill him because he was sinner. How does Huckabee know that he wasn't in fact thwarting God's will by intervening with such an unnatural act as the Heimlich?

Clearly Mr. Huckabee has a lot to answer for.
