Double secret probation -- UPDATE

Posted By on Tue, Dec 12, 2006 at 9:18 PM

There are down sides to joining a frat. I didn't figure it would take long for Gov. Mike Huckabee to catch a little good-natured heat in the blogosphere for following Elvis Presley into the unofficial honorary ranks of TKE, the rowdy frat his son joined at ASU.

Example:

I’m not sure that joining a frat as a 51 year old man is the best way to convince the country you are mature enough to lead the nation.  Do we really want the President and Defense Secretary overseeing some bizarre Iraqi prisoner hazing ritual that involves making suspected terrorists try to drop the marshmallow squeezed between their ass cheeks into a martini glass?

When you run for president, everything gets looked at closely. Rules dodging on PACs. Bridal registries. Woofing at boxing matches. Cadging furniture gifts. Etc. Judgment IS part of the equation.

UPDATE: Lots of party pix, including many with secret hand signals, of the governor's frat brothers at ASU here.

  • 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.
