Freakage

It’s fun watching the Republicans chew up on each other, and then when they have a moment to take a breath, they waste no time in pointing out the tiffs between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

What it tells me is that the mainstream GOP is absolutely freaked out by the possibility that Mike Huckabee might win the nomination and they don’t know what to do about it. He’s not the “chosen one,” and therefore they have to unleash all the negative energy they were saving up for a general election campaign against Hillary Clinton on this usurper from Arkansas. (It’s remarkably similar to the early responses that Bill Clinton got when he leaped ahead against the rest of the Democratic field in 1992.)

Trust me, I have no interest whatsoever in seeing Mike Huckabee in the White House, but it’s fun watching the likes of Rush Limbaugh freak out over him.
