In contrast, Huckabee comes off rather well. No doubt his ad comes as a relief to voters already burned out on the non-stop coverage and the 10? 15? 500? debates which have already taken place before a single primary has been held. In response to accusations of his “subliminal [Christian] messaging,” Huckabee offered this deadpan reply: “I was also signaling evangelical voters with Morse code, with all the blinking I was doing.”
Whether or not Huckabee would make a good president remains to be seen. He has, however, displayed tact, a sense of humor, and appropriate reverence for the most important day of the year: the celebration of the birth of our Savior.
Merry Christmas, Governor Huckabee.
