Aren’t you snickering at us already? So no harm.

You’re right, though, Huckabee won’t win, because while he’s very popular amongst the theocrats who are the largest conservative special interest group but not at all among the plutocrats who actually control the party.

“Huckabees,
A family dining experience.”

That’s all that comes to mind when I hear his name.

But his is going to be President. And I for one, can’t wait to watch those that hate him say “President Huckabee” through gritted teeth. Awesome.
Hell, I’m not even a supporter, but I can see the writing on the wall.

All joking aside, YJM, he really, really isn’t. Conservative newspapers in Arkansas don’t like Huckabee, and not just for his economic populism, but for his track record of being greedy, nasty and sarcastic.

Americans don’t like to elect jerks. George W. Bush’s presidency was largely predicated on him convincing the electorate that he wasn’t a jerk. Huckabee doesn’t have nearly the same level of poise, which says a lot. He might win Iowa, but he won’t take New Hampshire once the spotlight really gets focused on him.

I hope you’re right, he’s picking up a lot of support from people who love Chuck Norris, even though they completely disagree with both Huckabee and Norris politically.

and exudes “I would love to have a beer with him”-ness.

Well, as we all know, the last politician to whom this applied is an alcoholic who stopped drinking. Since this time, it would be a teetotalling Southern Baptist, I’m a little worried about the parallel. Let alone that the reason he’s in any difficulty with the moneymen is because of his “compassionate conservatism(TM).”

Anyway, many of the hard theocratic right will still try their darndest to get an actual ordained Baptist minister elected as President, and will shrug off mockery of his name the way they shrug off mockery of their benighted, hate-filled 12th-century beliefs. Meanwhile, many of the hard xenophobic right will be tearing their hair out over his previous mild accommodations of undocumented immigrants. Meanwhile meanwhile, Grover Norquist (heh-heh-heh, “Grover”) has told Pat Robertson’s news network that he wouldn’t have a real problem with Hyuck, since at least he’s a Republican. So the Money Power might not be as dead-set against an ethically-challenged flat tax proponent as you think.

Regardless, it will be fun to watch. And by “fun,” I mean “sinking further into a slough of despair.” Hey, that Canadian judge just ruled that political refugees can’t be automatically turned back at the US border anymore…

Huckabee has also secured the all-important Chuck Norris endorsement. His candidacy instantly become 120% more hilarious.

On a far less hilarious note:

It seems different from the Wille Horton thing, because Huckabee really did have a personal hand in this, plus he was sent warnings about this guy and ignored them.

Obama rhymes with Osama, Hillary will never known by her surname, Romney is heritageless-sounding blah, Giuliani… are we ready for such an ethnic sounding name on a president?

Clearly the only choices are Edwards and/or McCain.
