Mike Huckabee: The anti-Limbaugh candidate  —  Yes, the Huckabee campaign “hucked up” again.  Time for another NYPost cover!  —  I was in the car listening to Rush Limbaugh responding to the Mike Huckabee campaign's attack on him.  What an unbelievably knuckle-headed move by Huckabee's minions.

Re: Romney's Explanation  —  I had the same reaction as David — I thought it was just bad in that sort of “I was named after Sir Edmund Hillary” kind of way when I read Jim Geraghty's account, but it was REALLY tough to watch the video last night.  And now (as Jennifer Rubin points …

Hasta La Vista  —  Tom Tancredo is an angry man.  —  We know this because he has proposed dropping bombs on Mecca.  We know this because he sang “Dixie” at a South Carolina gathering full of Confederate flags and white supremacists.  And we know this because he wants to expel 12 million people now living in the United States.
Mark Schmitt / American Prospect:
The “Theory of Change” Primary  —  Perhaps we are being too literal in believing that “hope” and bipartisanship are things that Obama naively believes are present and possible, when in fact they are a tactic, a method of subverting and breaking the unified conservative power structure.

Pimp My Ride  —  On the road with Ron Paul's merry band of misfits and his hooker fan club.  —  The first thing I learned from driving around Nevada with Ron Paul for a couple of days: People really hate the Federal Reserve.  This became clear midway through a speech Paul was giving …
