Sitting here watching some analysis of last nights election results and who’s featured? Mike Huckabee.
Yes, it’s on Fox and yes, I know he has his own weekly show there (I’ve never watched it BTW) and there are some extreme right-wingers that absolutely love him.
Okay, yes, he has some political chops as an ex-governor of Arkansas, and on occasion he makes an actual reasonable point. But that’s not what I am really calling disturbing.
What’s disturbing is that in GOP polls currently, he has an 11% favorability rating for president. No, I’m not making that up. They were just talking about it.
This is exactly what we need for a president: A Baptist preacher. This guy is so right-wing he makes, well, I shouldn’t go there should I? I realize that there is probably no way in hell that he’d become president, but 11% this far out from the 2016 election?
Yes, I also realize he’s what would be called a fringe candidate but at this stage there’s no one in the GOP lineup that isn’t. If the GOP want a chance to win the presidency in 2016, they need to find someone that’s not a nut job.
