We've already remarked that Mike Huckabee's appearance on Meet the Press was marked by transparent dishonesty in two areas -- 1) trying to dodge his advocacy of the release of rapist and murderer Wayne Dumond and 2) his bodacious assertion that he was the first Arkansas governor to cut taxes.
Ernest Dumas documents the specifics that illustrate the dishonesty of Huckabee's statements in his column for this week's print edition of the Arkansas Times. Once again, the column is too good to delay sharing. It's vital research by a veteran Capitol reporter for the benefit of other reporters nationally who might be prone, on first impression, to actually believe the hyperbole and/or calculated dishonesty that come out of Bro. Mike's mouth.
