What The Huck Does He Want?

I admit, the longer Mike Huckabee continues his campaign the more silly-assed post titles I can generate. And for that, I'm thankful.

But seriously, why does Gov. Huckabee linger when it's clear that it's almost mathematically impossible for him to win? I mean, after Potomac Tuesday tomorrow McCain will probably have just about all he needs with wins in OH and TX. So what's the point?

Mike Huckabee is trying to get past 289. That's the number of delegates that Mitt Romney's "suspended" campaign currently has. I don't think the Huckster is pushing for VP because let's be honest, McCain will choose his running mate based on personal loyalty not accumulated delegates. I think he's gunning for the mantle of "conservative leader" against Romney for 2012 and beyond.

So as Huck's Army marches on, they keep McCain in the news. Right now, it's tough to break through the Hil-Bama story. But as long as Huckabee keeps hanging in there the newsies in the MSM will still pay attention to the Republicans. My guess is that McCain will take the free media coverage. He'll need it. Because the quest to paint him as an unstable right-wing nutcase will get underway soon enough.

Brace yourself, John. It's a comin'. Considering how well you did against Charlie for almost five years I give you better than 50/50 against these hounds. Party on!
