Oh Shucks, Old Huck

Oh Shucks, Old Huck

2012. Everyone is talking about 2012, as if something new is going to happen in 2012. Let me make a prediction now. Based on what I know now, there will be no change in 2012. President Obama will be re-elected. The GOP can save all that sweat, all those swear words, all that scrapple --hog guts -- and get over themselves. I think that one sane member of the GOP is doing just that -- former  Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee and the current Fox News house boy.


Good old Huckabee is sitting perched in a cat's bird seat. He is enjoying himself at Fox, loving the easy work and the gravy that comes with the job. He's seen the future, his future. He is making more money than he has ever made in his life. He can afford biscuits with his gravy and is not going to give that up for a risky run  -- to the White House? That country boy -- excused me, gentleman -- is smart enough to know that only old dogs and crazy old men chase windmills.

 Yesterday, an item in the Washington Post newsletter, "The Fix", pointed out that  Mike Huckabee's daughter, Sarah, who has been running  old Huck's PAC,  is " leaving that job to manage the Senate campaign of Rep. John Boozman. Dispatching a top political aide to a Senate campaign at a time when other 2012 aspirants are beginning to staff up would seem to send a clear signal that Huckabee is not particularly serious about a re-run bid for the presidency in 2012."  (http://voices.washingtonpost.com/thefix/morning-fix/217-economic-stimulu...).


Well, yeah. Huck, has kicked off his shoes and is laying back. Who can blame him?
 The right-nut- wing hacks tried to do a hatchet job on him, Willie-Hortonize him, last December over some pardon. Some haters even called old Huck the "L" word. Darn, old Huck doesn't need that or them. He's got Fox cheese.
