And the attendance was ...

Yes, he's praised Mike Beebe effusively. Yes, A$a would tear down his praiseworthy school initiatives. But, Gov. Mike Huckabee insists, he really, really, really supports A$a for governor. The Democrat-Gazette drew these remarks from The Huckster in an interview yesterday. Read it free by copying and pasting the link below:

We wonder what the majority Democratic legislature thinks about Huckabee's comments in the article taking credit for all the programs it passed. They were just followers to his leadership, The Huckster suggests. He jumped in front of their parade is more like it.

But never mind that. We need more info from loyal opposition reader Citizen Journal. The D-G article said 50 people were on hand for a fund-raiser at which The Huckster appeared for A$a. Were there more than two fund-raisers yesterday? Or was this the gunapalooza reputedly attended by hordes of  "sportsmen"? Could be a few (hundred thousand) hunters are voting for Mike, ya think?

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    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.
