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."

  • 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.
