People in Grassley Houses Shouldn’t Throw Stones

Senator Charles Grassley’s inquiry into the six televangelists is not without its irony.  Grassley is apparently making sure that their “prosperity doctrine” is not just a tax dodge to allow them to accumulate personal wealth.  Meanwhile, the Senator helps run the International Christian Leadership Council, a non profit organization that owns its own mansion, Cedars,Continue reading “People in Grassley Houses Shouldn’t Throw Stones”

Why Huck Fights On

So why is Mike Huckabee staying in the race for president?  What does he hope to gain?  What is he seeing that the rest of us don’t see?

How CNN Robbed Mike Huckabee

Huck And Mitt? Joined at the Hip!

 Neither can win in November without the other.  The most interesting statistic to come out of the Nevada Primary tonight is the dismal 8% showing for Governor Mike Huckabee.  This shows what we all should have suspected that the Evangelical-Mormon estrangement cuts both ways.  And it sends a very clear message to both the RomneyContinue reading “Huck And Mitt?

The “Luck” of Huck: Mike Huckabee will win tomorrow night and everyone will call it a one time, lucky shot, but will they be right?

More than a year ago a minority of political observers, including this author and Dick Morris, to name a few, were predicting that the Republican nominee would come from the so called second tier candidates.  It didn’t take rocket science to calculate that with 42% of the nation claiming to be born again Christians –Continue reading “The “Luck” of Huck: Mike Huckabee will win tomorrow night and everyone will call it a one time, lucky shot, but will they be right?”
