Fear the Huck!

Shares

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?

Better yet:

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.

  • I would like to express my thanks to you for rescuing me from this challenge. As a result of looking throughout the internet and meeting principles which were not helpful, I figured my entire life was well over. Existing without the strategies to the problems you have sorted out by way of your post is a critical case, and the ones which might have in a negative way damaged my entire career if I had not encountered your web blog. Your primary know-how and kindness in dealing with the whole lot was excellent. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a stuff like this. I can at this point relish my future. Thanks for your time very much for the professional and amazing help. I will not hesitate to endorse your web sites to any person who requires recommendations about this matter.
