The road to 1600 Pennsylvania winds through an SPLC hate group's backyard?

Q. What does a gay-unfriendly 2008 Republican presidential nominee (and likely 2012 candidate) do to bide his or her between-elections time?

A. If the candidate is Mike Huckabee, he takes a speaking gig with one of the 12 U.S. groups that the Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled an anti-gay "hate group":

Quitting your job as governor? Adultery scandals? Speaking for an organization that has fallen below this nation's many other gay-unfriendly "pro-family" groups to earn special "hate group" status? Sheesh, who is advising these GOP White House hopefuls?!?!

**UPDATE: The Illinois Family Institute has been removed from the SPLC's hate croups list. We're trying to find out why.
