It's official: the Electoral College has voted to certify that Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States, so liberals can finally move on to the "acceptance" stage of grieving. Despite incredible pressure (including even psychotic death threats), most Republican electors held fast for Trump. Ironically, there were more electors from blue states who refused to vote for Hillary than Trump turncoats. She lost a few votes to Bernie Sanders in states that don't allow switching (so they weren't counted.) But in Washington, where electors are free to vote their consciences, three Hillary electors voted for Colin Powell instead, and one voted for Native American tribal leader Faith Spotted Eagle. Those go on the record.

Democrats suddenly decided the Electoral College was an outrage that had to be eliminated when Hillary won the meaningless popular vote (thanks entirely to California). Will they now halt their campaign to let all electors vote their consciences and declare that a moral outrage, too, now that they've seen how it can actually work against them? Don't be surprised. To liberals, morality, like gender, is a fluid thing.

A Good Choice

By Mike Huckabee

Republicans who were worried about Donald Trump being a liberal mole should be reassured by his latest appointment. He's reportedly tapped South Carolina Rep. Mick Mulvaney to head the Office of Management and Budget. If confirmed, Mulvaney will be in charge of budgeting and getting Trump's agenda through Congress. Mulvaney said the OMB post will give him the best opportunity to make real improvements in how the government is run.

Mulvaney is a Tea Party Republican who is so dedicated to reining in federal spending that he was willing to shut down the government over it, and he clashed with his own party's leaders as well as Democrats over their mutual refusal to get the red ink under control. You can tell this pick will please conservatives because liberals are already howling that he'll gut Social Security and Medicare, which is their to-go response whenever anyone in Washington suggests imposing any actual spending discipline. Their other kneejerk response (smearing Republicans as dumb and unqualified) had to be put on hold for now. Mulvaney has both a law degree and a degree in international economics. That puts a big fly in their mustard.

Kevin's Story

By Mike Huckabee

A few years ago, inspired by my book, "A Simple Christmas," I asked listeners to my radio show "The Huckabee Report" to share their favorite Christmas stories from their own families. They sent so many great ones, both moving and hilarious, that it became an annual tradition. With Christmas just a week away, I thought I would pull out seven of my favorites and share one a day with you. If you enjoy these stories, please let me know in the comments on my website here.

Every day until Christmas, I'm recounting family stories inspired by my book "A Simple Christmas" and shared with me a few years ago by my radio listeners. Warning: today's is not for the weak of stomach.

One thing everyone loves about the holidays is all the great foods we indulge in only once a year. Every family has its special dishes that simply must be on the table, from oyster dressing to yams with tiny marshmallows. But sometimes, they don't make for a great combination.

Kevin from Maryland wrote me that he grew up in a Norwegian family that always served the notorious fish dish, lutefisk, which he jokingly called, "the piece of Cod that passes all understanding."

Kevin recalled: "My mother, a fine teetotaling Christian who prided herself on never having alcohol in the house, was appalled the day my uncle brought a six-pack of beer as his contribution to the Christmas meal. To my mother's horror, my father graciously accepted the libation. And so, in sullen silence, the family dinner was served...the traditional lutefisk and Godless beer.

I remember the smirk on my uncle's face as he began to eat the fish dish and wash it down with beer. My father, at the other end of the table shared in the merriment, while my poor grim-faced mother tried to remain polite...though sitting next to her, I was certain that she was asking God to strike her kin with righteous retribution."

Now, at this point, Kevin went into some clinical details about the chemical reactions of the digestive system that I won't relay here. Suffice to say that about half an hour into the meal, his dad and uncle suddenly excused themselves and bolted from the table. They both spent a miserable night of gastric distress, much to his mom's quiet satisfaction.

Kevin said that was the Christmas he learned that mixing fish cured in lye with beer creates a volcanic reaction in the stomach similar to mixing vinegar and baking soda. He said it was also the year he learned that God answers prayers (his mother's, at least.) And He's not above using science in working His will.

Tomorrow, I'll bring you a story that touches the heart rather than the stomach.
