Huckabee begins book tour as potential presidential candidate with stop on Jim Bakker show

THEN AND NOW: Blogger Charles C. Johnson notes the Huckabee book covers before his first presidential run in 2008 and today, when he's indicated he's thinking of another race. Johnson, by his tweets about Huckabee's record, is no admirer.

Mike Huckabee was forced off Fox News as a weekly show host by his exploration of a 2016 presidential bid. He makes the move just in time for a tour to peddle his latest "book" — political celebrity won't hurt.

Huckabee is going straight to the well of his evangelical base apparently as he hits the book circuit.

Credit a Branson, Mo., newspaper with the scoop that Huckabee will tape a show Tuesday morning with Jim Bakker at his studio in Blue Eye, Mo. Yes, THAT, Jim Bakker, the ex-con televangelist whose love of money perhaps exceeds even Huckabee's.
