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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
