New Muppet-Candidate


This really brings home how much of a surprise Mike "Homeboy" Huckabee has been in the GOP presidential candidate race: when I wrote my Politicians Puppets and PC Paint entry a few months ago, he didn't even make the list. And seeing as how I based the entrants in that list on articles from TIME, Newsweek, and U.S. News and World Report, he really has come out of nowhere. Well, he comes from Arkansas if you want to get literal. But let's get down to this analysis!

MIKE HUCKABEE & FOZZIE BEAR

These two have more in common than you might think!


1. Both look out of place in the public sector. Fozzie because he's naked beyond the bowler hat and the scarf(?) and Huckabee because, well, let's face it--he's a walking political disaster.


2. Both put up a facade in public, acting far too nice to be what they really are--one a southern evangelical politician and the other a grizzly bear. Get in their way, and either one is just as likely to eat you as to provide sound policy or a cuddly friend.


3. Both resort to jokes when any real pressure is applied. WAKA-WAKA-WAKA!!!



Oh, also, on the right, you can check out some of the books that I read or tried to finish in 2007. Don't ask me how I found time to read them. Even I was surprised at the sheer volume of volumes. I've found that I spend too much time in non-fiction, history, and theory books at the law school, so to counter that, I stick mostly to fiction at home--poetry, plays, sci-fi, and fantasy. I'd recommend most of them heartily. If any intrigue you, don't hesitate to ask about them. Auf Wiedersehen!
