Huckabee's big announcement

Posted By on Fri, Dec 14, 2007 at 11:07 AM

Mike Huckabee is atwitter because a big-name Repub, Ed Rollins, will be his national campaign chairman. He chaired the 1984 Reagan campaign. Was Rollins the genius or Reagan?

Rollins is also the dirtbag who bragged to Time magazine that he'd paid black ministers and Democratic campaign workers to suppress the black vote in Christine Whitman's run for New Jersey governor in 1993. He kind of recanted after calls for investigations were issued.

Rollins presumably is expected to be the ticket to improved fund-raising for the Huckabee campaign. Here's a bit more background.

MEANWHILE: On the Huckabee record beat, Joe Conason vividly replays Huckabee's initial decision to help a preacher pal in the release of a monstrous killer.

    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.

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
