Huckette

Posted By on Tue, May 16, 2006 at 1:06 PM

Wonkette really has a thing for our governor. He's cracked the hot gossip column again, albeit with note of his unpleasant attitude toward certain members of the working press. The headline gets it right.

Mike Huckabee, Media hound

Sometimes he gets into nasty little spats with them. But for the most part, Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee just loves the news media.

If you doubt that Governor Huckabee is running for president in 2008, consider two facts. First, the fit-and-fabulous governor recently appeared on the Colbert Report. Second, he’s been spending more time in Washington than in Little Rock these days.

Today Governor Huckabee is here in the capital yet again (even if his daughter Sarah has left town). We hear that he’s having a long lunch with a gaggle of reporters, including several who focus on the 2008 presidential race. Quipped one reporter who’s lunching with the governor: “I have more face time with Huckabee than with my boyfriend!”

But will he still love her if she writes critically about him?

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
