Add the National Review to the American Spectator as a conservative organ that gets Mike Huckabee. Sure, he has some appeal to voters, an editorial says. But:
Unfortunately, what Huckabee offers by way of solutions is a mixture of populism and big-government liberalism; the common theme of his policies is that they are half-baked. If an ill-considered slogan can be used to justify a policy, he is for it.
Half-baked policies and ill-considered sloganeering. Yep. That about gets it.
