Mike Huckabee won't be president

Posted By on Mon, May 24, 2010 at 4:48 PM

... at least not unless he can turn Rush Limbaugh around, since he's the GOP fuhrer.

Marcus Baram reads the new Limbaugh biography:

At the time of the book's writing this spring, Limbaugh's frontrunner for his support in the 2012 presidential race was Sarah Palin, whom he calls "the most prominent, articulate voice for standard, run-of-the-mill, good old-fashioned conservatism." A surprising second choice so far is Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty, whom Limbaugh praised as a choice for the vice presidential nomination in 2008.

But it definitely won't be Mike Huckabee (Limbaugh considers him "an irresponsible populist") or Newt Gingrich (who has "gone soft" in Rush's opinion) or once-favored Bobby Jindal (he has stopped referring to him as "the next Ronald Reagan" and scarcely mentions him at all).
