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 »
Can-Do Conservatives of America
My name is Brian Donegan. I am a 26-year old Conservative from Lawrenceville, GA. I am very new to grassroots activism but I have always been interested in politics. I decided to get off the sidelines and was an active volunteer for Mike Huckabee’s presidential campaign. I have been legally blind since birth and have been “blessed” with other handicaps. As I was watching the | Read More »
Mike Huckabee for Senate
See this line? Those are people waiting in a line that runs the length of the convention floor, turns, and wraps around of people waiting and waiting and waiting to meet Mike Huckabee and get his autograph on his book. That’d be one hell of an army of activists ready and willing to help in run for Senator from Arkansas next year. Maybe he’ll do | Read More »
Mike Huckabee Explains the Stimulus Bill.
Watch this video. Mike Huckabee totally hits it out of the park when he says what the title of the stimulus/porkulus bill ought to be. Oh, and for those of you who don’t like Huckabee, I understand; however, funny is funny and right is right. Like my Daddy always says, “Even a broken clock is right twice a day” (I’m not calling Governor Huckabee a | Read More »
Mike Huckabee Kicks Off 2012 Campaign?
Mr. Arkansas appears to have kicked off his 2010 Presidential election campaign this week in a column in Esquire magazine. The article is quite a flattering profile from a clearly liberal author (remind you of any recent Republican Presidential candidates?). The author goes so far as to describe Huckabee as “the nicest guy in a political party of not-very-nice guys”. You can read the whole | Read More »
