The Party’s leaders have for reasons that aren’t rational, left [Rep. Todd Akin] behind on the political battlefield, wounded and bleeding, a casualty of his self-inflicted, but not intentional wound. In a Party that supposedly stands for life, it was tragic to see the carefully orchestrated and systematic attack on a fellow Republican. Not for a moral failure or corruption or a criminal act, but for a misstatement which he contritely and utterly repudiated. …Who ordered this “Code Red” on Akin?
Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee • Issuing, via email last Thursday, a vociferous defense of congressman and Missouri senate candidate Todd Akin, who’s been under a lot of pressure by the GOP to drop out of his race after espousing a fallacious theory about rape victims and pregnancy last week. To be clear, the “code red” Huckabee disdains isn’t so much dealing with the policy implications of Akin’s views – the GOP is ardently anti-abortion, and makes no exceptions for rape or incest victims in their official party platform. Rather, the turmoil is a political one. With the party struggling among likely female voters, during a huge general election year, the name of the game since the story broke has become ‘down with Akin.’ But Huckabee won’t play ball; rather, he’s emerged as Todd Akin’s most vocal defender. This is the same Mike Huckabee who has a mainline speaking slot at the upcoming Republican convention in Tampa next week. Rest assured, there’s some heartburn being felt over at Romney HQ because of this. source (via • follow)

I have not been asked. I think there’s a greater likelihood that I’ll be asked by Madonna to go on tour as her bass player than I’ll be picked to be on the ticket.
Mike Huckabee • On his chances of being Mitt Romney’s running mate. The Huck is a great bassist, we’ve heard.

Mike Huckabee no likey what the DOJ did today. The social conservative, who looks like a reasonable bet as a 2012 candidate, gives an interestingly socioeconomic view of why Obama’s move to not defend the Defense of Marriage Act in court is a bad idea. We disagree with him but note that his argument that voters have turned it down at the ballot negates the fact that the public’s views have shifted recently. source
