Huckabee's splash

Posted By on Tue, Feb 13, 2007 at 6:16 AM

The Washington Post's blogger gave Mike Huckabee's announcement of support from old-line Republicans in South Carolina a good ride. He was nice enough NOT to mention that former Gov. Carroll Campbell's family isn't wholly for Huckabee, with one son already backing John McCain. (Or that the one son with Huckabee got beaten in his last electoral outing, so he's not wholly beloved.)

No matter. Our interest is in the hotly contested reader comments. Word travels fast in this day of the internets. Huckabee's moderate stance on immigrants -- an area in which he deserves some praise -- clearly stirs up an angry sector of Republicans. And, Arkansas Blog readers will be happy to know, James Boulder is on the case defending his man. He is everywhere.

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
