The morning Huck

Posted By on Tue, Jan 22, 2008 at 5:40 AM

HUCKABEE'S WATERLOO: It was South Carolina, Brummett argues, and seems to get at least partial agreement to this thesis about the state's importance from Huckabee supporters Lu Hardin and Gilbert Baker.

MCCAIN'S MOMENT: Like Brummett, David Brooks concludes that events have come together to help John McCain, who could win the whole thing.

ECONOMY CLASS: CBS notes Huckabee's end of a traveling media entourage and puts it down to a cash shortage, a tough factor in the multi-state Super Tuesday competition. He even hints at abandoning a strong race for Florida.

OFFICIAL SECRETS: The Washington Post complains that Huckabee won't reveal his major financial backers. An editorial hints that this could be because they include people paying for those slimy push polling robocalls that the candidate has disavowed.

IS HUCK SKIPPING FLORIDA?: Sounds a little like it.

  • 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.
