As usual, you are positively encouraged to engage in sock puppetry in this thread. The usual rules apply.

Please, be sure to switch back to your regular handle when commenting on other threads. I have made that mistake myself, a lot.

And remember: the worst sin you can commit on this thread is not being funny.


And for Friday frivolity, we have Jon Stewart imagining how MSNBC might replace Olbermann:

Where Are the Huckabee Supporters?

Filed under: 2012 Election,General — Patterico @ 7:29 am

They aren’t on blogs, as far as I can tell. So where are they?

I feel like a conservative version of Pauline Kael. who famously said: “I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon.”

Well, I don’t know anyone who supports Mike Huckabee.


I see that he consistently pulls numbers in the same ballpark as Romney and Palin. But I do not personally know anyone who supports him. I have never in my life spoken to a single person who supports him. What’s more, I read conservative blogs like Hot Air and Ace of Spades, and sometimes dip into the comment sections. I have never seen a commenter, on my blog, those blogs, or anywhere else for that matter, who says they support Mike Huckabee.

Not one.

Personally, I find him creepy and oily. He personally bugs me so much, I would be faced with a difficult decision whether to bother voting if he were the candidate. (Ultimately I would probably travel to the polls to vote for anyone, including our pet guinea pig, over Obama. But with Huckabee I would have to think about it.)

So. Is there anyone here — even one person — who wants to own up to being a supporter of Mike Huckabee?
