Human Rights Campaign has announced it is going to be archiving all the GOP’s candidates pronouncements on gay marriage and gay rights, but its inaugural press release singled out and put a target on Gov. Mike Huckabee’s back.

The press release is very typical of HRC: it describes Huckabee’s rhetoric in negative terms without actually quoting anything he has said (in the last decade at least), except for this 2010 quote: “We can get into the ick factor, but the fact is two men in a relationship, two women in a relationship, biologically, that doesn’t work the same.”

That’s it?

Huckabee announced he is sitting out CPAC in favor of South Carolina and Tennessee swings.
