Huckabee Campaign Reduced To Selling Newspapers

The Dallas Morning News has endorsed Huckabee, mathematics be damned. Well guess what, DMN? Just like Jesus, Mike Huckabee loves you.
"The Dallas Morning News is probably the greatest newspaper in America," the GOP dark horse said today at a press conference in Houston, tongue planted firmly in cheek. "And everybody ought to get a lifetime subscription."

Yeah, he's telling another joke. But it's now more obvious than ever that Huck's entire campaign is, well... a joke.

Bonus Passage: So why exactly does the Dallas Morning News like Huckabee?
The world has changed since Ronald Reagan's election nearly 30 years ago, and the great man's political heirs will have to adjust the GOP's strategy and tactics to new realities.

To that end, Mr. Huckabee, 52, should be a top leader in tomorrow's Republican Party. His good-natured approach to politics – "I'm a conservative; I'm just not mad about it," as he likes to say – is quite appealing after years of scorched-earth tactics from both parties. He's a pragmatist more concerned with effective government than with bowing to ideological litmus tests. For example, he has proven himself willing to violate anti-tax dogma to undertake investment in infrastructure for the sake of long-term prosperity.

Mr. Huckabee also is good on the environment, contending that the future of the conservative movement depends on embracing conservation and stewardship of the natural world. And he's a compassionate conservative especially in tune with middle-class anxieties in a globalizing economy.

Translation: Limited government is dead, so we endorse Huckabee because he'd spend a lot of your money and restrict trade, but at the same time magically conjure up loaves and fishes for everyone.
