(NOTE: I misread the poll results. The poll is among ALL voters. I’ll strike what isn’t relevant anymore, but most of my comments weren’t about the Republican nature of this poll anyway. Sorry for the confusion and thanks to Simon for pointing this out.) This was a bit of a surprise, especially considering that only […]

But apparently he’s got some spare time. The former Arkansas governor and once and perhaps future presidential candidate has inked a […]

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Huckabee, Palin, Polls, Romney

Yeah, yeah, I know it sucks, but this is politics and the speculation is bound to beginning immediately. In any event, NBC and the Wall Street Journal did a poll and guess who topped their list? That’s right: Mitt Romney. I wrote yesterday about how he was already starting his bid during the campaign itself […]

Romney 2012?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Huckabee, Republicans

Tucker Carlson is convinced he’s already running. So am I. Here’s more… Romney dropped out of the presidential race in February, but he never went away. He quickly became a regular guest on cable news, started a political action committee (which, according to National Review, has already given away more than $200,000 in donations), and […]

Looks like somebody has given the green light to the surrogates to talk about Obama’s past drug use. This doesn’t surprise me about Giuliani, but Huckabee? First Giuliani… Then here’s a link to Huck. Ugh. Tweet

Heimlich Huckabee

By Alan Stewart Carl | Related entries in Huckabee, North Carolina

Former Arkansas Governor and presidential contender Mike Huckabee could apparently have a career as an EMT. This weekend at the North Carolina GOP convention breakfast, Huckabee performed the Heimlich maneuver on Lt. Governor candidate Robert Pittenger who began choking while sitting next to Huckabee. In all seriousness, praise goes out to Huckabee for quick action. […]

Today word’s leaked out that Mike was, in fact, invited to the big McCain Memorial Day Weekend – but he couldn’t make it! Sarah Huckabee says her parents […]
