  • GUNNING FOR 2016: Huckabee book said to be precursor of another presidential run.
The Washington Examiner reports that Mike Huckabee has signed a book deal with St. Martin's Press for a book, "God, Guns, Grits and Gravy." It's said to be a policy prescription from the Huck to be issued in late 2015 as a platform for a presidential run in 2016.

St. Martin's said that Huckabee’s book will be “about America as it used to be, as it is today, and as it might become again.”

... From St. Martins:

In the book, Huckabee will range across subjects including the erosion of public education, government intrusion on personal freedoms, religion and its changing place in American life, the new lows of popular culture in a society with the wrong heroes, and the consequences of pressuring young children to mature and excel. Addressing today’s divided nation, Huckabee will draw from his travels as a presidential candidate to present average, small-town American people and their optimistic resilience in the face of hard times; their stories, says Huckabee, “will inspire readers to think about their own values and rediscover what makes America great.”

Urp.

The title, by the way, is a line Huckabee rolled out on election night coverage on Fox News to describe the Florida Panhandle, where he has a beach home — "all God, guns, grits and gravy." There's a God, Guns and Griits blog on the web unrelated to Huckabee, though it sounds like he'd approve of the content. It says: "Celebrate diversity. Buy a different gun as often as you can."
