Total eclipse of the Huck

Posted By on Wed, Dec 3, 2008 at 10:31 AM

Mike Huckabee went to Georgia to campaign for Sen. Saxby Chambliss. He recruited phone bankers on his huckabee.com website (and gathered info for his own political use in the process.) And this is the thanks he gets. All Huck's book sales and all his barnstorming and all his admittedly better-(if still ill-)informed chatter simply don't match Sarah Palin's va-va-va-voom. Too much more of this Palin worship and Huck's going to be one touchy camper come 2012, which should produce some primary Huckazingers. Betcha.

Fresh off his runoff victory Tuesday night, Georgia Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss credited Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin with firing up his base.

“I can't overstate the impact she had down here,” Chambliss said during an interview Wednesday morning on Fox News.

“When she walks in a room, folks just explode,” he added. “And they really did pack the house everywhere we went. She's a dynamic lady, a great administrator, and I think she's got a great future in the Republican Party.” 

Chambliss said that after watching her campaign on his behalf at several events Monday, he does not see her star status diminishing within the party.

The Republican also thanked John McCain and the other big name Republicans that came to Georgia, but said Palin made the biggest impact.

    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.
