Tough review -- UPDATE

Posted By on Tue, Mar 6, 2007 at 5:56 AM

John Brummett caught the Republican candidates at the CPAC confab last weekend on TV and today he gives Mike Huckabee a tough review, faulting the practiced speaker for his timing and comedy in the course of hitting him harder on substance.

Huckabee treated the event the way he seems to treat his campaign - as a tryout for a cable talk show. He seems to want to observe with would-be comedic commentary rather than compete seriously.

This is the event, by the way, where America's Hag, Ann Coulter, called John Edwards a faggot -- to some hooting cheers. Several Republican candidates have hurried to condemn the remarks. I'm searching to see if our former governor has been quoted.

UPDATE: Ouch, Brummett seems sweet by comparison with this blistering review in Newsweek of the same Huckabee speech.

  • 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.
