Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

Super Duper Tuesday After Action Report

  1. The Huck strikes back. The conventional wisdom was that Huck would drain conservative votes from Romney; turns out it was the other way around. Not sure it's enough to make any difference at this point;
  2. And do we really want the Huck for Veep? Is the chance that he will make it somewhat easier for the Democrats offset by the danger if McCain/Huck wins?
  3. The underreported story-Democratic primary turnout is shattering records;
  4. And despite Conservative wishful thinking about a "divided party," Democratic voters seem overwhelmingly supportive of either Clinton or Obama getting the nod;
  5. Meanwhile, McCain gets a head start on breaking campaign promises by blowing off a vote on the economic stimulus package he had repeatedly pledged to support;
  6. And Dobson asks for a million pledges not to vote for McCain, but does anyone really care what he (or any of the other Howler Monkeys) says anymore? Assuming anyone ever did?

Why not Prez? I mean...McCain is old. Dude might cack before the general election (struck down by Almighty God) or something like that. Then where the Republicans gonna turn?

Oh believe me, if I got to pick the GOP nominee, it would be Huck all the way. I wonder if his fortunes will improve somewhat now that Mitt is out? Probably not, since the Right Wingers don't seem to care much for the Huck either, as he is insufficiently contemptuous of the poor and downtrodden.

Now, is this because you think that any Democrat would make mincement out of him in November? Or because Huck would really be the best of these Republicans in the white house?

A little from column A and a little from column B. If I was a Republican, I would likely be for Huckbee, since he seems to best embody the party's stated values. As a Democrat, yes I am comfortably certain that either Obama or Clinton would whip him like a stray dog.
