What’s the Huckabee universe’s take on why Rush Limbaugh does not like the man from Arkansas? I asked a prominent DC-based Huckabee ally:
“Honestly, because Rush doesn’t think for himself. That’s not necessarily a slap because he’s not paid to be a thinker-he’s an entertainer. I can’t remember the last time that he has veered from the talking points from the DC/Manhattan chattering class. If they were praising Huckabee, he would be too.”
Why do I find this so funny? Because attacking the East Coast elite is a standard part of Rush’s repertoire; he has in fact pulled it me (he held me up as emblematic of “the Beltway conservatives” who were insufficiently loyal to Tom Delay). If the Huckabee camp thinks they can out-populist Rush friggin’ Limbaugh, they’re obviously morons, and I’d put a fair amount of money on them blowing it in Iowa.
