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.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.

    The open line. Kids marching for gun control. And a recollection of how hard it is in Arkansas to restrict gun ownership, even by proven thugs.
  • Another Trump propagandist from Arkansas gets blasted

    If Sarah Huckabee Sanders is Donald Trump's Baghdad Barbie, spouting implausible statements in support of her boss in the style of Saddam's Baghdad Bob, then let's make El Dorado native Hogan Gidley Baghdad Ken.
