  • HUCKABEE, CHRISTMAS PAST: Back in the race and handing out hundreds?
Comes this story from Jaime Bozeman of North Little Rock: 

She was out on Christmas Eve headed, not to buy gifts, but toilet paper from Dollar General when a man hailed her from his car, "Ma'am?" He was in an SUV with his wife, and Bozeman said she immediately recognized the couple. She continues:

He pulled out a folded up price of paper and said, "I have something for you — could you use some help this Christmas?" I of course said yes. He said Merry Christmas from our family to yours. I said thanks, nice to meet you and they drove away. I opened up the typed note and there was $100 inside along with a note saying happy holidays etc.

I of course went for the giant package of TP as it seemed like destiny! 


Bozeman swears the giver was Mike Huckabee, the putative presidential candidate, there on his old stomping grounds, giving away Ben Franklins in front of a discount store.
