I would love to see Mike Huckabee on TV. I think he's smart and funny. As long as he's nowhere near the presidency, I'm a fan of him.

^It is. I remember hearing him talk about his weight loss on The Tonight Show, and how his doctor sat him down about 5 or 6 years ago and said he was entering the last decade of his life if he didn't start taking care of his health. He cut out sugar and fried foods, started eating healthier overall, and started exercising. I believe he said he lost 110 pounds through diet/exercise alone.

110? Wow-he does look like half the man there. I think he looks like Kevin Spacey (without the sexiness).

Huckabee is awesome. Just, you know, not as the leader of the free world.

And without that little comment about AIDS patients. Other than that, he's swell.

I think most of us, especially those of us who are more liberal, are as politically skeptical of him as possible. I disagree wtith nearly everything he stands for. That being said, I think he's a genuinely down-to-earth, humble, funny, intelligent guy. He'd be a kick-ass neighbor.

I think he's funny, quick on his feet, amusing and when he talks about progressivism and lifting up the poor I want to shout Amen, precher! But then he talks policy and other issues and I get really turned off

while i find his occasional quips occasionally cute, i find his "down-home" speaking style to be the very hight of bullshittery and anyone who falls for it as "authenticity" really needs to go down to the Gap to buy a cool new shirt for the 7th grade Snowball Dance.

No. He can be amusing but underneath I think he's a fundamentalist freak.

Ah, the 7th grade dance. That was awkward. We all stood there and stared at each other as the teachers tried to get us to dance.

So we're closing in on 900 posts in this thread. Any one think it might be time to start a new one? I have a feeling that the next leg of the campaign is going to merit it's own thread.
