I’m beginning to think there’s more freedom in North Korea sometimes than there is in the United States.
Mike Huckabee, everybody. Remember when this guy ran for president? Oh wait, he’s probably running again.

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 (viafollow)

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.

For the Next Two Weeks, Rush Limbaugh Won’t Have National Advertisers

Right after releasing an ever-growing-list companies that don’t want anything to do with Rush Limbaugh on Monday (the count is at 140), the broadcaster’s distributor has sent out a memo telling affiliates to suspend national advertising spots for the next two weeks.
Though Premiere Radio Networks did not specifically comment on why the suspension was needed, but it does address one problem in particular: In the past week, several companies were unaware that their ads had aired during Limbaugh’s show in the wake of his comments about Sandra Fluke.

The real question, obviously: If Rush lays low for two weeks with advertisers, will they eventually come back? In a related note, David Frum makes the astute point that Mike Huckabee (who’s jumping in the talk-radio game with a friendlier approach) is a real, genuine threat to Rush’s long-term future on radio, partly because he’s safer for advertisers, partly because he’s competing for the same time slot, and partly because his timing is perfect.

2012 election poll: Nobody’s really doing it for GOP voters yet
It really sucks to be a GOP voter right now. Despite wide frustration on the right side of the aisle over Barack Obama’s policies, nobody appears to be doing the trick for conservative voters, according to this poll by The Washington Post and ABC News. And it gets worse: In a general election, Obama would best the entire field. Only Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee really get within fighting distance. Tim Pawlenty and Newt Gingrich are 15 points behind. Sarah Palin is 17 points behind, by far the worst showing. source
