Gov. Mike Huckabee has the soul of a Massachusetts state rep. Not to mention the ethics.The Republican freakout over Huckabee's rise is grand entertainment. Huckabee is everything they say he is, but he is also the obvious product of 20 years of Republican pandering to the hard-Christian right and the ridiculous 1990's pursuit of Bill Clinton's sex life.
What other conclusion can you draw after studying the squalid career of the current front-runner for the GOP nomination for president?
The Huckster is from the same town as Bill Clinton - Hope, Ark. - and at the risk of engaging in geographic profiling, what more do you really need to know? From what I can tell, if Huckabee had been raised around here, he would now be known as either “Mr. Speaker” or “the defendant.”
This barefoot boy with cheek is lucky he came up in the hookworm capital of America, because even here in Boston, where political corruption is seldom prosecuted anymore, he would have been in deep doo-doo a long time ago.
