Get the Huck Out

I have nothing personal against Mike Huckabee. As today's Republicans go, his lack of arrogant swagger and seemingly honest and genuine populism is, I admit, mildly refreshing.

This is in no way meant to imply that I want him anywhere near the White House between now and Armageddon, which if you believe Huckabee is likely just days away.

Rolling Stone columnist and unrepentant prick Matt Taibbi managed to hack his way through Huckabee's "Aw Shucks" charm and what he found underneath is as surprising as it is, well, not surprising at all.

Good article -- thanks for the link. I couldn't bring myself to vote for someone who believes the earth is only 6000 years old. Problem is, I can't bring myself to vote for any of 'em at this moment.

Wow...I always thought he looked a little cookoo in his ads. Well, at least I will be with the sane people when we all go to hell...which I assume is backstage at a Paris Hilton/Britney Spears/Lindsay Lohan concert.
