Is anyone else enjoying the spectacle of the Neocon establishment desperately trying to tear down Mike Huckabee as much as I am? It’s like one of those cautionary science fiction tales about someone creating a monster that soon grows out of is control.
Rich Lowry, at the National Review, is especially delightful to read:
Like Dean, Huckabee is an under-vetted former governor who is manifestly unprepared to be president of the United States. Like Dean, he is rising toward the top of polls in a crowded field based on his appeal to a particular niche of his party.
That didn’t seem to concern the National Review too much in 2000 or 2004, did it?
Huckabee has declared that he doesn’t believe in evolution. Even if there are many people in America who agree with him, his position would play into the image of Republicans as the anti-science party.
Um…I’m breathlessly awaiting the National Review editorial condemning the Bush Administration’s attack on science.
The conservative establishment’s belated realization that selling out to a minority interest opposed to rational science, reasonable social policy, and reality-based foreign policy will devastate their national electoral prospects is a delight to behold.
