Quip-draw McGraw -- UPDATE

Posted By on Sat, Mar 3, 2007 at 6:31 AM

Other candidates dominated the NY Times coverage of the CPAC meeting in Washington, but Mike Huckabee was quick on the draw with a quip for the gun-happy crowd.

The problem for conservatives is that the candidates they may be more inclined to support — Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas and Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas — are generally seen as being longer-shots to winning the nomination. Mr. Huckabee got in a jab, making reference to Mr. Romney’s disclosure last week that he had only recently joined the National Rifle Association. “I’m not a latecomer to the N.R.A.,” Mr. Huckabee said. “I was the first governor in America to have a concealed carry permit, so don’t mess with me.”

UPDATE: Here's Huck pandering to the Dobson wing of the Republican Party. Pandering's probably not precise. He means it. On social issues, he has no crossover appeal, except when he slips up as he did once in New Hampshire and indicated an openness to civil unions.
