It’s always nice when a former competitor quotes you approvingly. When the competitor is Max Brantley of the Arkansas Times (weekly), it’s especially gratifying. Max is one of the liberal journalists who makes you wonder sometimes just how he could possibly arrive at the opinions or interpretations he reaches, but whose facts are always dead-on accurate. There’s probably not an American Spectator reader who would vote the way Max does, but he’s great to grab a cup of coffee with and great when it comes to knowing all the ins and outs of Arkansas politics. The other day he wrote what might be THE definitive story on Mike Huckabee’s controversies in public office in Arkansas. It appeared at Salon, but now it seems that some sort of sign-in is required to read it there, so I instead provide a link to a reprint of Brantley’s piece at a pro-Romney web site. Do read it. And when you get to the last paragraph, then if you are a regular reader here at The American Spectator, well….you might see something that looks a little familiar.
But I digress. The point isn’t that Brantley quoted me; the point is that Brantley’s account should be must reading for journalists and for GOP voters alike. Go see for yourself.
