Huckabeez Last Dayz?

Well, if Mitt Romney had anything to say about it, this would be one killer Roundhouse Kick:

Plus Huckabee is a picket-crossing scab despite having received the endorsements of some unions and having said he supports the writers. Don't go on Leno and say you support labor. Do as you say, not as you do, Mr. Preacher Man. Also check the writer-creator of Brothers & Sisters on his thoughts about Huckabee as a smoove-talkin' devil.

Then he'd look into my eyes
Lord knows to my suprise

The only one who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man
The only boy who could ever teach me
Was the son of a preacher man (azlyrics.com)

Rachel Sklar has an analysis of the (aw) sHuckster's media gambit of putting together a massive press conference to announce that you are NOT running a negative ad that is dominating the news, much like his earned media coverage of the infamous cross ad. That's a hell of a way to get your ad aired all over without paying for the media time, which is the REAL expense - not the creation of the ad. I have to agree with Sklar and say, "New York Times and the mainstream media, you got pwned. Damn your confusion, the Huckster played y'alls like a fool."

And this is why in the previous McCain vacuum, I have been hyperventilating over Huckabee as a stealth killer GOP candidate. He's damn smart, and this idea plus the cross ad (which is probably the modern day equivalent of the Daisy ad) is probably a son of the gun genuine Dick Morris special. I'd lay $50 on it, but the preacher probably wouldn't approve of me betting. But he'd sure as hell take mah moneez.
