Huckabee (preacher, ret.)

Posted By on Sat, Jan 3, 2009 at 12:52 AM

The Arkansas Leader does a sober evisceration of Mike Huckabee's complaint that he was constantly described as a Baptist preacher during his presidential campaign. The fact of his prior vocation defined his campaign just as much as John McCain's military record helped define his. It wasn't mentioned that often anyway. But Huckabee apparently understands now that he self-pigeonholed himself as the religious candidate.

For a more hoot-filled take on Huckabee's complaint, see Bob Caudle in the Morning News on "Brother Huck's Traveling Salvation Show."
