Mitt Quits, Huckabee Vows to Quit Later by Scott Ott for ScrappleFace · 37 Comments

(2008-02-07) — Shortly after former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney told a shocked crowd at the Conservative Political Action Committee’s (CPAC) annual convention today that he’s ending his presidential bid for “the good of the nation”, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee vowed to fight on “until my presence becomes pathetic, embarrassing and ridiculous.”

“It takes 1,191 delegates to win the nomination,” said Mr. Huckabee addressing a rally of his supporters, “Since I’m 1,000 delegates short of the goal, most folks think I’ll be dropping out soon. A day may come when the courage of men fails. When we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship. But it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the age of men comes crashing down. But it is not this day. This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you stand!”

Asked later by a reporter why he had quoted Aragorn’s soliloquy at the Black Gate from the movie “Return of the King”, Mr. Huckabee shrugged his shoulders, sheathed his sword, and got back on his campaign bus.

    In the movie, "Better Off Dead," with John Cusack, there is this sub-plot of the local newspaper delivery boy stalking Cusack to get his $2.  Some people will go to great lengths to get their $2 in real life as well.

  • Publishing to Perish ?

    In an interesting twist, the Arkansas Supreme Court today amended Ark. Sup. Ct. Rule 5-2 and will now allow all cases to be cited, doing away with the distinction between published and unpublished opinions.

    The death penalty makes me nervous. It makes me nervous because there is always a chance the wrong person is being executed.
