WHAT NEXT? We rounded up some Hucksterisms this week, but not in time for a new HItler trope.
  • WHAT NEXT? We rounded up some Hucksterisms this week, but not in time for a new HItler trope.

Here's an open line. I close with this:

* MIKE HUCKABEE: STILL OUTRAGEOUS AFTER ALLTHESE YEARS: You just can't keep up with the Huckster, the ex-governor who took his smashed hard drives and Arkansas-built media money machine to tax-free Florida. No sooner did we devote a Big Picture feature to Hucksterisms this week than he went and topped himself, too late for us to include.

From Newshounds, a Fox News watchdog:

Mike Huckabee was the runaway winner of our Fox News Outrageous Quote of the Week poll last week - and I think we can all agree it was a well-deserved distinction. In a field of 10, Huckabee earned 34% of the votes, double his nearest competitor.

To refresh your memory, Huckabee's exact words were:


“The IRS is the closest thing the US has to a Gestapo."


Words fail.

But if you agree with him, you can send him money.
