The two faces of Huck

Posted By on Sun, Sep 24, 2006 at 5:34 AM

John Brummett writes today about Mike Huckabee's contradictory nature. Altogether, it works.

Here's what appears to be happening in Huckabee's gearing up to run for the Republican presidential nomination: His good first impression - made by his likable nature, quick if sometimes corny or inappropriate wit, glibness, appearance of political candor and eclectic array of views - has catapulted him from the comically nonserious to inclusion among those not to be dismissed altogether lest the front-runners fade.

There's a touch of news here. The Huckster says he's going to ratchet down his campaigning out-of-state in October, presumably to help A$a some in the state of which he is nominal governor. Brummett went to press, of course, before we posted yesterday's note about The Huckster's two-day campaign trip for Oklahoma candidates.

  • The yawning teacher pay gap between Arkansas school districts

    Before Arkansas congratulates itself for outpacing Oklahoma on teacher pay, we should take a look at the huge disparity in salaries within the state. New teachers in Bentonville may make almost $46,000 a year, but new teachers in many other districts will start the 2018-19 school year earning $31,800 — less than the starting salary in Tulsa.

Shortly after the publication was distributed, campus security officers began gathering the copies of the zine and throwing them in the trash.
