The Limits of Huckabee  —  Rich Lowry's column is tough on him but largely fair, I think.  Despite his populist (or pseudo-populist, as Rod Dreher puts it) flourishes, Huckabee has conspicuously failed to break out of his evangelical base, and while I think Rich slightly underestimates …

Stimulation-palooza!  —  Too many people have been borrowing money and spending beyond their means-charging their credit cards up the wazoo, buying more house than they can afford, etc., etc., etc.  So what's Washington's solution?  Give 'em “tax rebates” so we can spend, spend, spend our way out of recession.

Misjudging McCain  —  He was right about the nuclear option.  —  JOHN MCCAIN HAS COME UNDER HEAVY FIRE from conservatives critical of his alleged apostasies.  To be sure, several of his stances—on tax cuts, illegal immigration, campaign-finance reform—stand at odds with the current mainstream of American conservatism.

Michael Gerson / Washington Post:
Callous Conservative  —  After watching Fred Thompson debate his Republican rivals, I have often wondered why he is not in the top tier of candidates.  He seems to have John McCain's honesty, without his razor-sharp edges, and Mitt Romney's conservatism, without his jaw-dropping inconsistencies.
David Brooks / New York Times:
