Suzi Parker of U.S. News, who's always been chummy with Mike Huckabee, quotes sources as saying a coming Huckster trip to Branson, Mo., where he'll have Tony Orlando on his Fox News program for Nov. 12, is also about Huck checking out Branson as the site of a Huckabee country music variety show.
Sources close to Huckabee say the town is a perfect place for him to host a variety show—much like his weekend Fox News show Huckabee—that would draw thousands. Associates say he has no plans to quit Fox, even if he does a Branson show.
A town in which Shoji Tabuchi's theater bathroom is a top attraction does seem like a good fit for Huck's potty humor.
