While the Beltway “wisdom” says Palin can’t win but Huckabee could, I believe it is just the opposite.

Huck da *uck is what I think of as a "Briar Patch Republican" -- as in the story of Brer Rabbit and the briar patch.

Brer Rabbit, having been caught at something or other, was being sentenced for his misdeeds, and pleaded with the court for mercy -- his plea consisted of begging for anything other than being thrown into that ol' briar patch -- please, mercy, do ANYTHING to me, but PLEASE don't throw me in that awful briar patch!

Of course, for a rabbit, being thrown into the briar patch would be like a fish being thrown into the pond. But, Brer Rabbit, ever the canny cony, counted on the stupid judges not realizing this, and thinking HIM foolish enough to let them know of the "punishment" he feared the most.

So, the reverse psychology worked, and he was given the ultimate punishment -- and laughed his bunny butt off as he hopped into the bramble.

Hucka*uck is the left's FAVORITE "conservative" -- as in, "Oh, boy, that Huckabee, I tell ya, he'd be a STRONG contender, he'd be someone hard for us to beat. We sure hope we're not up against HUCK come next election cycle!"

And, sure enough, The Stupid Party -- true to its calling -- anoints the turd, WAY early in the game -- and begins the "Trashing of Sarah" campaign equally early in the game.

If there was a Nobel Prize for consistently shooting oneself in the foot, the Stupid Old Party would be the perennial winner.

When I saw how they were whoring themselves away for *uckabee, I gave up any hope of NOT enduring a second Zerobama term.

Of course, they've still got that good ol' Mitty to use to sink the ship.

The Stupid Party will never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity. You'd never think ANYONE would be so stupid as to pit a posterboy for flaccidity like Dole against an aggressive carnivorous priap like Clinton -- but, that's exactly what they did.

And then they turn around and do basically the same thing THIS time around, ensuring the Obama win.

And still, they can't quite get it through their head -- instead of coming up with a VIABLE candidate, they persist in their pathological political self-destruction, and foist this sad toad on what's left of their party.

Unless Mitt pulls a huck-grade seppuku move too, I expect they'll anoint him as the next loser.

And, if he does kick himself out of the race, I expect they'll dredge up some other loser, rather than "allow" Palin a chance at the brass ring. I suspect that they still nurse a mega-dose of get-even grudge over her "sin" of cleaning up the GOP ranks in Alaska. Party Uber Alles, and all that jolly old rot, after all.

Basically, I see no real hope at all for the next election.

I must have missed the mea culpa.

It followed the announcement that Lynryd Skynyrd was signed up for a second visit on his show. The song they will be playing is an old favorite of mine, "That Smell".

Off, OFF damned sarcasm.

I agree. Palin has much more sense than all that group put together.

What happened in W. Virginia re: Huckabee?

Sorry to be so slow to respond but I was on vacation with limited internet.

My memory is a bit fuzzy but when the West Virginia state GOP convention met to determine which candidate would get their delegates to the national convention, there were three viable options left - McCain, Romney and Huckabee. McCain was not the assured eventual winner at that time but Romney needed a win to stop McCain's momentum. After the first canvas, Romney (who became the one backed by most mainstream conservatives after watching guys like Thompson and Tancredo bow out) had over 40 percent of the delegates but needed 50 percent to carry the state. That's when Huckabee told his delegates to support McCain on the next vote which put McCain over the top and gave him all of West Virginia's delegates. There were rumors of a quid-pro-quo had McCain been elected president.

IMO, we were in bad shape with any of the three remaining (McCain, Romney and Huckabee) but Huckabee's "deal" with McCain told me he wasn't a man of principle - he was simply a politician.

Huckabee, BTW, was on Neal Boortz's show this morning and was still minimizing his role in Clemmons' release, claiming all he did was reduce the sentence that made him eligible for parole, not granting parole itself.

Makes no difference to me. Still can't wash the blood off his hands.
