Don't tug on Superman's cape

Posted By on Thu, Feb 21, 2008 at 7:04 AM

Now The Huckster's gone and done it -- he's started picking on St. Barack. Obamaists: to the defense!

When given the opportunity to distinguish himself from his opponents in the Democratic field, Huckabee offered some harsh words for Obama. Huckabee said Obama would "drop the guns and run away from Iraq," while he wouldn't. Huckabee said Obama would raise taxes and he wouldn't.

Asked about Michelle Obama's comment that this was the first time she was proud of America, Huckabee said he hoped it was just "a slip of the tongue" that would need further clarification. Huckabee said there were many reasons to be proud of the country.

"I just want to believe that's one of things that is said with fatigue," he said.

Meantime, a rather embarrassed reporter asked Huckabee to compare the voting process to American Idol.

Huckabee said, with a smile, that he frankly thought the presidential process might be better if it were "run like American Idol" because, at least that way, all the candidates would get equal time on stage.

If they had equal TV time, Huck would have had to give quite a bit back.
