I heart HuckabeeHave you seen this story from the AP concerning former governor Mike Huckabee finally getting off the unemployment line?

Evidently, FOX News needs another talking head to bounce theories off Bill O’Reilly. So, they go out and throw some dollars in front of a preacher.

Hey, don’t get me wrong, I would take the bait too. Who better to talk smack about this historic election than a man who was a part of it?

Now, it’s easy for those who voted for him or who live in Little Rock, Ark. to be altruistic and believe Huckabee took the gig to inform and educate the public about the presidential election.

Although admirable, let’s remember that he is BOTH a preacher AND a politician. He should have two sets of lips plastered across his grill.

Take this comment:

“I hope to bring the unique perspective from `inside the dragon’s belly’ as well as to try and speak for the millions of hardworking middle-class Americans who really do feel that their voices are not being heard,” Huckabee said in a statement released by his daughter, Sarah. “I saw that on the campaign trail and continue to see as I speak to groups of all kinds around the country as well as campaign for other candidates.”

That said, keep in mind Huckabee is on the short list for a Veep nod from McCain, which leaves HiScrivener to think, “I wonder if he is shilling for another job.” Come on, we all know if you work at a church, odds are you aren’t making a slaying on your 401K fund.

Good on ya’ Mike. Knock ’em dead come ratings season. I’m sure FOX will ‘heart Huckabee‘ as well.
