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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
