Sympathy for the Huckster

Posted By on Wed, Jul 15, 2009 at 6:22 AM

The old weight loss roller coaster. It's well known to all who battle obesity. So I'm sympathetic with former Gov. Mike Huckabee, now suffering slings and arrows for putting weight back on following a rise to prominence -- and hefty book sales -- from his major weight loss.

According to Wonkette, he addressed the subject in a recent appearance in Oklahoma:

He said keeping the weight off has been a struggle recently.

“It’s been hard the last several months because of the crazy schedule and I have had some issues with (feet),” Huckabee said. “It’s a constant struggle to find decent things to eat on the road and not get terribly messed up with the same old habits.”
