Hard to believe Huckabee pulled this off
I do have to admit I blew my call completely.... after his moronic idiot statements about Gitmo and Bhutto, and then the Ad/no ad fiasco I just knew Huck was going to freefall -- I predicted a fourth place for him. I apparently underestimated the sheer stupidity of the people of Iowa.

Well, the voters don’t understand conservative and liberal policies, or they are more liberal than most think they are. I think Huckabee did this well in IA because he appealed “psychologically” to people who feel “left out” in the political process. They don’t understand Huckabee’s non-conservative positions, but they see him as a “fellow Christian” who “understands” and is “willing to listen”. This psychic appeal can catch on. Romney is no realistic alternative in my view.

It all depends on who gets their people there. A few minutes ago, NBC had the audacity to break in on “Deal or No Deal” with a live report. Tim Russert said that 60% of the Republican caucus goers identified themselves as conservative Christians giving Huckabee the advantage. Huckabee was counting on the churches to get his people to the polls and it looks like they came through for him. In an actual primary when people have all day to go and vote, I would not expect Huckabee to do as well. There will also, hopefully, be more time for him to stick his foot in his mouth!

Some voters are truly deluded apparently. Or, they are so fixated on the fact that he’s a Baptist they ignore everything else.
