Various Huckabee Items
Two big points to be made this morning:
1. IFPC Executive Director and former Brownback supporter (as well as being the Kansans college roomate), Chuck Hurley joins team Huck. He will join some other values voter "heavies" on a 7 day tour of the state to stump for Huck..
2. Clearly Drudge is out for blood. He's had Huckabee oppo on his banner ever since the MSNBC poll came out showing Huckabee in the lead. The problem is that Drudge has more of an east-coast, secular sensibility than some other conservative media icons (Rush, O'Reilly etc..) For 3 straight days he's had seemingly critical headlines that point to Huckabee's belief that homosexuality is wrong, AIDS patients should be quarantined, and now his comment that we need to take America "back for God." Whether you like it or not, all of these things probably help Huckabee in Iowa. They certainly don't hurt him in any substantial way. So while he might be feeding distaste for Huckabee amongst the East Coast elites (and that serves a small purpose given how friendly the MSM has been to this point), he might be unwittingly helping Huck among likely primary voters. Maybe we're misreading Matt's intentions. More likely, Matt is letting his personal views get in the way of his political agenda.
