Meant to add from Newsday:

"Don't you think it's fair also to ask (Barack Obama) . . . how come we don't have a health record, we don't have a college record . . . Why, Mr. Obama, did you spend millions of dollars in courts all over this country to defend against having to present a birth certificate? It's one thing to say, I've - you've seen it, goodbye. But why go to court and send lawyers to defend against having to show it? Don't you think we deserve to know more about this man?"
Huckabee should have replied, "I've seen paranoia, goodbye." Instead, he said: "I would love to know more. What I know is troubling enough. And one thing that I do know is his having grown up in Kenya ..."

Couldn't read the article because I'm not a subscriber, but I take it this was about Huckabee's latest ramble about Obama.

"Weird" doesn't even begin to describe it. I certainly don't agree with all of Huckabee's politics, but he always struck me as a nice man. Watching that rambling, nonsensical diatribe was just sad. Those 2 minutes killed any chance he ever had of being President.

YOu can google it. It's a syndicated column; was in my local paper and also the Denver Post today.

Huckabee has zero chance of being elected president. Just like Guiliani, Romney, Palin, and Gingrich.

As for Obama's background, who cares? He's done enough dumb things in his 2 years in office that I can't understand why any potential challenger would want to dig up things that happened in Obama's youth.

Not to mention, the Republican challenger will have to run against both Obama AND the liberal media AGAIN.

How are the media soooo liberal when every time a liberal here posts a Rachel Maddow clip the retort is that MSNBC has such terrible ratings?

Just because a channel has no ratings, that doesnt mean they arent liberal..

The KKK has no followers, but according to your rationality, they arent racist..

MSNBC has such terrible ratings BECAUSE they are left wing kook liberals.. They dont even lean left, they are way out there in kookville...

Hmmm. I can't get enough of reading his stuff. Yea, it comes off as a bit pedantic, but he's so damn clever, that he's compelling even when i don't agree with him.
