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?

    The Washington Post has published a map that counts Arkansas as among states that will "partially comply" with a sweeping request for voter data by the so-called election integrity commission set up by Donald Trump in an effort to cast doubt on Hillary Clinton's 3 million-vote popular defeat of him in 2016.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
