New York reviews Mike Huckabee

Posted By on Mon, Aug 9, 2010 at 3:12 PM

New York magazine's daily blog reviews the Mike Huckabee syndicated TV show and concludes it's a better vehicle for making some dough than running for president. Sarah Palin's planned TV show? Might be better politically.

New York finds the Huckabee show "vaguely watchable."


For more where that [the clip of Wayne Newton above] came from, watch Huckabee with Ron Clarke from Hee Haw and Huckabee on whether or not your spouse's Facebook friends are a threat. You get the picture. It's Tyra without the sass but with some of the same weight issues.

...

But is Huck's show really helping his political prospects? Is watching a self-defense tutorial with a Real Housewife of New York City really going to bolster the presidential credentials of a man ranked as a front-runner by a CNN poll earlier this year?

Watching the clips above, it's clear that the answer is no. Huckabee must be after something other than a real shot at the White House in the coming election season. And who can blame him? A successful talk show not only pays better than the presidency — it also has better hours and, as crazy as it sounds, a potentially longer shelf life. The timing also doesn't add up. If Huck's show, currently on a trial run, gets picked up for regular distribution, it would kick into high gear just before he would have to begin plotting his political campaign in earnest.
