Second of the three: Huckabee.

    And serving up the humor: As much as I appreciate the opportunity to speak tonight, I really was originally hoping for the slot on Thursday called the acceptance speech. I really tire of hearing how the Democrats care about the working guy as if all Republicans grew up with silk stockings and silver spoons. In my little hometown of Hope, Arkansas, the 3 sacred heroes | Read More »

    Tonight’s Convention Speakers Lineup

    If you are like me, you’ve been in the dark a bit day to day about the speaker schedule for the Republican Convention, given that the hurricane scrambled the original lineup. Here is tonight’s lineup, and it’s a good one following last night’s right-left combo of Fred Thompson (or, if you were watching most of the networks, the last third or so of Fred) and | Read More »

    A Sea of Red In St. Louis

    On Sunday I had the opportunity to attend the McCain/Palin Road to the Convention Rally in O’Fallon, MO (just west of St. Louis and we call everything around here St. Louis).

Even Hillary Clinton’s name has been thrown around this afternoon.Probably the biggest issue surrounding McCain’s VP pick is whether he’ll dare pick a populist candidate as his running mate.

    Conviction is the Key for John McCain

    Tonight I saw a Reaganesque John McCain for the first time this campaign.While Barack Obama took great strains to make sure his word choice was even-tilled and didn’t isolate anyone; John McCain demonstrated he is a made of conviction, adhering to basic conservative principles. Whether Rick Warren asked a question regarding abortion, taxation, or “what SCOTUS jurist would you have not nominated”: the major theme | Read More »

    Romney Not Right Choice for VP

    For some time now, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has been mentioned as one of the front runners to be John McCain’s Vice Presidential running mate. But is Romney really a smart choice? Earlier this week, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, who opposed Romney for Republican presidential nomination, made an excellent point saying: “I think a lot of people, not just social conservatives, but a | Read More »

    Huckabee: “I’d go Pawlenty.”

    Just now, on FNC’s Hannity & Colmes program, Mike Huckabee said that the two names he has heard being mentioned as John McCain’s likely Veep pick were Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty. Asked who he would choose, Huckabee replied: “I’d go Pawlenty.” I ought to leave the Veep talk to the smart people, those who participate at RedState.com, but I agree with Huckabee — if | Read More »

    Conservative Activists, today is Vertical Day!

    I think it has to do with a bottom-to-top conservatism. Today is Vertical Day over at the Huck PAC’s site, on which a dozen or so candidates supported by Mike Huckabee’s new PAC — including Bob Clegg, Luke Puckett, Jim Inhofe, Lamar Alexander, John Cornyn, Steve Daines, Elizabeth Dole, Roy Brown, Gilbert Baker, and Brad Lage – get to blog about the issues dear to | Read More »
