Open line, plus some Huckstering

Posted By on Tue, Oct 14, 2014 at 4:18 PM

Here's the Tuesday open line and video roundup. Plus some news of some coming Huckstering next week.

Republican attorney general candidate Leslie Rutledge has sent a news release with this subject line: "Join Governor Mike Huckabee and I This Monday."

It's a rally for her candidacy. She worked once for Huckabee when he was governor, though she left the staff abruptly and, according to her resume, was unemployed for a couple of months before landing another job. She later worked in the Huckabee presidential campaign. Just for fun, I asked Huckabee's loyal former chief of staff, Brenda Turner, if she would shed any light on Rutledge's departure back then. Alas, no, but she was very pleasant about it. Working at DaySpring, the Christian greeting card company, seems to agree with her.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
