Mike Huckabee: The excitement builds

WHATS HE SELLING NEXT? Maybe himself, as presidential candidate.
  • WHAT'S HE SELLING NEXT? Maybe himself, as presidential candidate.

Mike Huckabee is promising a major announcement Saturday.

Another Alaskan cruise? Another trip to the Holy Land? More autographed guitars for sale? New junk history videos for sale? A new weight-loss book? A presidential candidacy? A new coffee mug for sale?

Pins and needles here. More Huck tease here. You might guess no is the answer based on people quoted in a story by AP's Andrew DeMillo. Would he really announce a candidacy on his TV show, some pretty messy free political advertising for Fox to deal with.

And speaking of that goshawful history video series: Sharp-eyed Jason Tolbert noticed a little editing on the menacing black man used to set up the video about how Ronald Reagan saved America. In one version, the black robber is wearing a shirt that says "disco sucks."
