The vote hunter

Posted By on Fri, Sep 22, 2006 at 10:35 AM

A$a’s campaign announced today that Gov. Huckabee would sponsor a fund-raiser for the Republican gubernatorial candidate Sept. 29 preceding the Arkansas Outdoor Hall of Fame Banquet at the Peabody Hotel. Nice of Huckabee to take a break from campaigning for candidates in Iowa and South Carolina to help out an Arkie. Maybe it will be an opportunity for A$a! to ask him, please, stop talking in front of reporters about the “lousy job” the Bush administration’s Homeland Security Department has done on border security. You may remember that Huckabee’s would-be successor used to be in charge of, well, border security.

Confidential to DK: Man, if you want to wrap A$a in the flags of the NRA, the hooks-and-bullets crowd and the antelope-slaying Huckster, finish the job. Send us a photo of A$a with some dead animal he’s slain recently. I bet Mike! has one. In fact, we welcome trophy shots here from all candidates. (You, too, Rod and Jim.) Though we confess a preference for monster watermelons, squash shaped like Richard Nixon's head and tortillas imprinted with the image of Jesus.

UPDATE: Seek and ye shall find. No dead critter available, but the campaign provides us a shot of A$a! well-armed and camoed on the trail of warm-blooded prey. Top that, Mike!

  • Donald Trump declares war on Hillary Clinton's marriage

    Donald Trump gave a remarkable interview to the New York Times yesterday in which he declared open season on the marriage of Bill and Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton's past infidelity. Seems like a loser, but I've been wrong before.
