Hotline is either directly or indirectly responsible for something funny, everyone! Gather round!
Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas, media whore and ‘08 contender, is the bass player in a cover band — what the hell is it with these middle-aged conservatives and their crappy bands? — and Hotline makes all the obvious (but v. v. necessary) jokes.
We’re a bit more interested in Huckabee’s stage presence (or lack thereof), which is more Entwistle than Simonon (how fucking awesome would that have been? Rapist-pardoner or no, that would’ve won us over).
Anyway, someone’s gotta organize a battle of the bands. In Iowa, probably.
And still talking Huckster, Survey USA has a new national reading on approval ratings of the 50 governors. Huckabee has a 57 favorable 39 unfavorable reading, a bit above average for the 50 states.
