Huckmentum approaches zero

  • WTH: Americans yawn at stale shtick.
Mike Huckabee whined about transgender people serving their country in the military at last weekend's debate. He said that he could protect Social Security benefits by taxing pimps and prostitutes. Or something like that — like other Americans who follow politics, I almost immediately forgot what Huck said. Honestly I forgot he was even there. 

Huckabee has run right into a bummer. He is running for president to get more attention, enhance his brand, and cash in. But there's this other guy who has, uh, trumped him on that front. 

Here's the latest polling this week: 

Rasmussen national poll: Huckabee 3 percent (down from 7). 
 
Suffolk Iowa poll: Huckabee 2 percent. 

Boston Herald New Hampshire poll: Huckabee 3 percent (down from 7)

Survey Monkey/NBC national poll: Huckabee 5 percent. 

This is what it looks like when a campaign is fixing to bite the dust. We're getting into what's-his-name territory. Jim Gilmore with jokes. 

They ain't buying what the Huckster's shilling.

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.
