The Republican field

Posted By on Sat, Jun 20, 2009 at 5:06 AM

Gail Collins of the New York Times makes fun of the large and not-so-impressive crop of apparent Republican presidential candidates. (John Ensign was one!)

Most of the acreage is a recommended and pretty good rip of Caribou Barbie, but our boy Huck gets a nod:

Mike Huckabee now has a TV show where he discusses current events, plays with a rock band, sings with the new “American Idol” (“The Huckabee household has been rooting for this guy all season!”) and talks to a “Biggest Loser” trainer on his special feature, “Get Healthy With Huck.” I know Huckabee is pretending to be a candidate for the presidential nomination, but really, I think he’s found his permanent niche.
