Big profile on The Huck in Politico this week, and the Governor can’t get over why nobody will talk about him…
“I just don’t understand how it is that a person can read these polls day after day and the narrative is constantly everybody but me,”… “Whether I do it or not, the fact is that if one looks at the overall body of information that’s available, nobody would be in a better position to take it all the way to November.”
The piece goes on to detail The Huck’s fascination with the amount of attention people are paying to Parasalin relative to the amount of time people are spending speaking of him. The rest of the piece speaks to the Huckabee’s friends and backers belief that the former Arkansas Gov will indeed make another run in 2012.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard The Huck complaining. Before, during, and after 2008, he continually informed people that he wasn’t accepted into the Republican holy of holys as it were because he was from the south and he grew up poor – bathing himself with lava rock soap or something to that effect because he couldn’t afford… bar soap?!. He complained that Mitt Romney was distorting his record, that Rush Limbaugh was an elitist, and – just in past weeks – he tweaked the Bushes because they hadn’t supported him in ’08. While Parasalin has certainly been granted more media volume for her complaints than The Huck of late – about everything from the media to ‘the machine’ to ‘the Washington elite’ – Huckabee was Sarah Palin before Sarah Palin was Sarah Palin.
I really enjoyed Karl Rove’s recent response to all the complaining from both of these critters when he was on the radio program of Palin’s fan club secretary Laura Ingraham. Rove said they should both just get into the 2012 race and stop whining. It’s not Presidential, and it doesn’t accomplish anything. It just makes you look foolish. He also mentioned The Huck’s tweak of the Bush’s and drew the comparison between what Huck said, and how Ronaldus Magnus went about his business. Could you ever imagine Reagan saying something like that against George H W Bush (who did run against him in the 1980 primaries)? NO! The man was forward thinking, magnanimous and optimistic! The Huck (and also Parasalin most of the time) is a whiner! Stop complaining about the wealthy, the well connected, and the machine Michael! Don’t bust out the politics of victim-hood! Go sell your children’s Christmas book in peace, man!
