The mainstream media is hoping against hope that Mike Huckabee will be the GOP nominee. Here's a news flash: I've got a better chance of throwing a touchdown pass to Randy Moss in Superbowl XLII, especially after the latest "huck-up."
Can you imagine the gall of Mike Huckabee? Accusing Rush Limbaugh of being a shill? A mouthpiece for the Bush party line? After Limbaugh hammered the administration on their pathetic attempts at immigration reform, Harriet Miers, the Dubai Ports deal, GOP spending abuses, and so on?
Huckabee has no chance at winning the nomination. That's no chance. And that, my friends, you can take to the bank.
Update: STACLU has a great round-up of reactions to the Huckabust.
Update II: The Atlantic's Marc Ambinder had the original report. A comment from 'Steve' captures the situation perfectly:
Huckabee and his crowd aren't being all that careful when they fire their shots. Let's see, in one week, he or his supporters have dismissed National Review as the "chattering class", criticized Bush in terminology straight out of the Kos and Moveon.org playbooks, dissed Condoleeza Rice, took on Rush Limbaugh and quoted scripture comparing those that oppose Huckabee to those facing God's wrath (right out of Isaiah). Can't wait to see what next week brings. Is this who you expect to unite the party and face the Dems in the general election!? Try again.
