Huckabee rocks

Posted By on Wed, Aug 23, 2006 at 8:21 AM

Hotline, the national political tipsheet, gives the popup video treatment to rockin' Mike Huckabee and band. A reader notes that Wonkette has also posted this video, with the following commentary.

Hotline is either directly or indirectly responsible for something funny, everyone! Gather round!

Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas, media whore and ‘08 contender, is the bass player in a cover band — what the hell is it with these middle-aged conservatives and their crappy bands? — and Hotline makes all the obvious (but v. v. necessary) jokes.

We’re a bit more interested in Huckabee’s stage presence (or lack thereof), which is more Entwistle than Simonon (how fucking awesome would that have been? Rapist-pardoner or no, that would’ve won us over).

Anyway, someone’s gotta organize a battle of the bands. In Iowa, probably.

And still talking Huckster, Survey USA has a new national reading on approval ratings of the 50 governors. Huckabee has a 57 favorable 39 unfavorable reading, a bit above average for the 50 states.

    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.

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
