Want Drama? Follow the TN-03 Race
I’ve been silent on this issue because I’m still undecided. It’s a 8-way race. By all accounts, there are only three or four top contenders, but this is bloody primary. If you like dirty politics, TN-03 is the race to follow. District three encompasses a slice of East Tennessee, and the Democrats can barely get people to turn out for a pancake breakfast. The winner | Read More »
Huck and Her Highness
Sorry people but the Mike Huckabee Show is just too painfully corny for me. Weekly, a misty eyed Mike stares dead on into the camera extracting emotion and support from cheesy viewers nationwide. The Governor does this, while a live studio audience of wholesome people clap as if Emeril Lagasse was about to toss out Spinach Empanaditas to a pod of weddell seals. Couple Huckabee’s cult like studio audience | Read More »
Early 2012 Posturing: The Money Game; UPDATE
A kinder, gentler year for Republicans, 2009 witnessed the flipping of two governorships–one in the newly-designated purple commonwealth of Virginia–and the Senate seat long-held by the late Ted Kennedy. The prospective 2012 Republican contenders, too, have capitalized on the base’s renewed vigor, with early front-runners pulling in–and dolling out–millions for their political action committees. Mitt Romney’s Free and Strong political action committee raised just shy | Read More »
Rumors of Mike Huckabee’s Political Death are greatly exaggerated.
In case you haven’t known, quite a lot of people on the conservative blogs proclaimed, with their esteemed credentials in the area of politics, that Michael D. Huckabee’s career was dead. It now appears that their previous estimates were indeed wrong. In case you are in disbelief, please note the post that Tom Jenkins made here at the PPP polling firm. http://publicpolicypolling.blogspot.com/2009/12/looking-at-huck.html Not only did Mike Huckabee stay | Read More »
1,033 pardons and commutations, including for 12 convicted murderers
As the dust is still settling on the Washington State police killings and the connection to Mike Huckabee, I’m reminded of this article by Ron Fournier written shortly before the Iowa Caucus. It got a lot of play in national media circles, but not in Iowa itself.Back in 2008, a lot of people tried to paint Mike Huckabee as soft on crime. But, the guy | Read More »
Note to Mike Huckabee
Mike Huckabee is dancing around New York 23 and looks extremely silly. He won’t endorse in the race. It is very conspicuous.I know, in fact, that he will not endorse because Club for Growth and Fred Thompson were there first and his ego couldn’t take it. Sarah Huckabee dismissed the idea that Mike Huckabee had decided to stay out of the race because of any | Read More »
Mike Huckabee Won’t Endorse Hoffman. I Know Why.

Sarah Palin Dominates Politico.com Straw Poll
In an effort to illustrate how straw polls in small venues can be skewed, Politico.com ran it’s own reader’s straw poll asking who SHOULD have won the Values Voters Summit straw poll. Now one has to say that Mike Huckabee winning the original poll is not surprising. This is really his crowd. And one also has to factor in that Sarah did not attend the | Read More »
Fitting the Pieces for Mike Huckabee
The excitement this morning on Twitter seems all about Mike Huckabee. There has been no doubt in my mind that he never stopped running for President after conceding the nomination to John McCain last year. He just changed which Presidential election he was running in. Which is why it was such a huge (but very silly, given the timing) argument late last year over who | Read More »
Will Mike Huckabee Take Back That Endorsement?
In my mailbox a few weeks ago, I received a fundraising letter from Mike Huckabee encouraging me to give money to Chuck Grassley (R-IA).The problem with that, of course, is Grassley has been cooperating with Democrat attempts to get a bi-partisan healthcare bill out of Congress.If Grassley comes out in opposition, I’m cool with that. He just might. But if he lends his name to | Read More »
CONFIDENTIAL to America
In lieu of a real post, I have a few personal messages to the people making news (or at the very least piquing my curiosity): To the nice lady I saw at the Tax Day Tea Party wearing a “Huckabee 2008″ button: As a native Arkansan, let me assure you that Huckabee is the quintessential Arkansas politician — in other words, a Baptist socialist. Bill Clinton | Read More »

Iowa court decision may affect 2012 GOP primary
According to the Votemaster, the recent decision by the Iowa Supreme Court striking down a state law which defines marriage as the legal union between one man and one woman, “immensely complicates” the 2012 race for the GOP…
My Open Letter To The GOP
(NOTE – This is my open letter to the GOP. It was originally published last week. After writing it I got the idea for founding the Can-Do Conservatives of America – that I talked about in the previous post…thanks to those who were nice enough to reply to that – I have since added to it and wanted to share it with y’all) I wanted | Read More »
