Mike Huckabee Envies Sarah Palin (Updated: Last Call)

The Crier and the Liar

UPDATE: Tomorrow is the last day for voting in Boston radio station WRKO’s “Next Great Political Blogger” contest. Internet voting ends Saturday night at 11:59pm EST. Lynnrockets thanks all of for voting. If any of you folks have not yet voted multiple times (and are inclined to do so), please notice that the establishment lights are flashing because it is last call. Please vote here. Vote for “Kevin McCarthy” in the spot next to the photo. Then, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on “Confirm your vote”. You will then be taken to a new page where you will notice the name “Kevin McCarthy” and you must click on the word “Vote”. Once again, I thank you folks for all the help.

Somebody please call the Whaaaaambulence for Mike Huckabee. The whining, sniveling and failed GOP Presidential candidate gave an interview to POLITICO this week in which he cried over the fact that he gets little respect as a 2012 contender for the office. He seems genuinely jealous that the conservative world dissects and analyzes every one of  Sarah Palin’s Facebook posts and Twitter tweets yet ignores most anything he says. He complains…

“I just don’t understand how it is that a person can read these polls day after day and the narrative is constantly everybody but me. Whether I do it {run for President} or not, the fact is that if one looks at the overall body of information that’s available, nobody would be in a better position to take it all the way to November. The polls are consistently favorable, putting me either at the top of every poll or right near it. It’s hard to ignore that, having swum in that water before when I barely registered in those very kinds of polls,”

Huckabee then turned his ire against Sarah Palin. He and the ex-quitting former half-term Governor of Alaska are both paid contributors on the Fox News network. Indeed, Huckabee hosts his very own political show while Palin only makes guest appearances on other programs. But while Huckabee’s show struggles with very low ratings, Palins foolish realty show which airs on TLC garners a much larger audience. Both of them have also recently released books, but Palin’s sales are dwarfing those of Huckabee. The media attention given to Palin irritates Huckabee.

“She’s brought an enormous amount of energy to the party. As to why she seemingly draws ten times the attention, I don’t know. You’re never going to read that. I’m never going to be breaking news because I made a comment on Twitter and Facebook. Why is that? I don’t know.”

The fact that speculation of a Palin run for office is so rampant while speculation of a Huckabee run is so lukewarm is perplexing. After all, Huckabee has more experience and is better qualified for the position. While Palin only lasted half of one term as governor, Huckabee served two full terms in that office. While Palin was number two on the McCain ticket, Huckabee was a 2008 Presidential candidate. Huckabee should also hold a firmer grip on the evangelical vote inasmuch as he was actually a Baptist pastor for over 12 years while Palin has repeatedly switched churches and had demons exorcised from her body. Finally, Huckabee is smarter than Palin. He obtained a bachelor’s degree in only 2 1/2 years at Ouachita Baptist University while Palin required 6 years and 5 colleges to earn her degree.

In short, Huckabee would be a far more electable Republican than Palin, but Palin is the bigger celebrity. This is simply a fact that Huckabee must live with and contend with. He demeans himself however, when he cries publicly about it.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Lynnrockets needs your help. Boston’s largest talk radio station (WRKO AM) has chosen Lynnrockets as a finalist in its “Next Great Political Blogger Contest”. Yours truly has been selected  by the station’s staff (from over 200 entries) to be one of 10 finalists for a position with the station as a “liberal” blogger. There will be two winners (a “liberal” and a “conservative”) chosen by means of internet votes received. This is our chance to get even with the Palinbots for what they did for Bristol Palin on “Dancing With The Stars”. Like Bristol, I lack talent but with all of you voting for me, I may be able to pull-off an upset win. I offer my eternal gratitude if you loyal Rocketeers will visit the WRKO website (Here) and vote for wait…wait…here comes the spoiler…”Kevin McCarthy”. Looks like I’ve now been officially outed. Please vote early and often as the contest ends on Saturday, December 11th at 11:59pm EST. I would truly appreciate your help and if you really want to be of assistance, please encourage your family and friends to vote also, too!

Today’s song parody is inspired by Mike Huckabee’s crying.

Rock-A-Bye, Baby lullaby link:  http://kids.niehs.nih.gov/lyrics/rockaby.htm

HUCKABEE BABY

(sung to the lullaby “Rock-A-Bye, Baby”)

Huckabee baby
GOP flop
Everyone knows
He’s easy to mock
Outrage he fakes
With Palin he brawls
But Huckabee baby
Is sure to fall

Mike’s book is lousy
Beyond compare
Palin, he sneers
Gets treated more fair
She has a knack
For book-signing swings
And while Mikey weeps
Sarah Palin sings

From the high rooftop
Huckabee sees
Palin spreads fear
While charging a fee
All the right-wingers
Old, male and white
Are Palin’s sheep
So Mike’s in a plight.
