I figure Jonathan has already seen this, as he’s my go-to guy for federal political questions, but I stumbled across it this morning and found it interesting.
I do concur with the post that what AM radio I’ve listened to of late has been unabashedly anti-Huckabee. I knew that Hannity and Limbaugh couldn’t stand McCain, but the fact that they so strongly oppose the only remaining anti-abortion lifer confirms what I’ve suspected for some time, namely that their concern for opposing abortion has for a while been a pander to the evangelicals. Now, when the chips are on the table, they seem to prefer pro-abortion neo-liberals (in the economic sense) to anti-abortion populists.
Incidentally, Wizzle, Congressman John Linder wrote a glowing endorsement of Mike Huckabee this Sunday in an op/ed piece for my small market newspaper. (I get it free with my twelve-dollar-a-month cable TV subscription.) Among elected officials Linder’s the longest-running advocate for the FairTax plan that I’m aware of, and Huck’s support for it seems to have gotten at least the elected end of the FairTax community behind him.
