And about 2012

Posted By on Thu, Oct 23, 2008 at 1:07 PM

Don't count me among those who think this election is over. Nonetheless, a lot of Republicans seem to be leaning in that direction. Right or wrong, this piece in the American Spectator about Mike Huckabee's future chances is entertaining. He hasn't won over the Spectator crowd, doesn't sound like. Sample, responding to another writer's suggestion that Huckabee would be a relatively safe choice:

Relatively safe? Huckabee is a complete loose cannon, capable of saying outlandish things at any moment, like when, while theoretically in the running to be McCain's VP, he made an Obama assassination joke. He also still has an atrocious record as governor that didn't stand up to much scrutiny and next time around, he won't be able to operate under the radar for as long as he did during this cycle.
