Huffington on Huckabee

When she's good, she's very very good. Huffington writes about and compiles all the Republicans' angst and upset about Huckabee's surge. They are appalled that he is in the lead and she points out that they are reaping what they sowed. Republicans seems to be fine with exploiting and using the religious right, but are beside themselves now that one, who is a true populist and not a posing populist, a true compassionate conservative not a fake one, has a real shot at the Republican nomination.

Huffington summaries all the permutations of their knickers in a twist. And she points out that they are crippled in doing anything about it because they could be accused of being elitist -a charge usually slung at East Coast liberals.

There are a lot of terrific links (see Andrew Sullivan's). Start with Huffington here.
