Mike Huckabee: Arkansas Secular Liberal?

Mike Huckabee campaigns as religious Baptist.  Yet how religious is Huck?

Robert Novak, in the Washington Post [1], questions the depth of Huckabee’s Baptist support:

More than personality explains why not all his Baptist brethren have signed on the dotted line for Huckabee. He did not join the “conservative resurgence” that successfully rebelled against liberals in the Southern Baptist Convention a generation ago.

Ann CoulterAnn Coulter goes farther, and questions both Huckabee’s intelligence and sincerity of his supposed religous convictions [2].

Hat Tip: Allah Pundit: Hot Air [3],

Huckabee is a liberal Arkansas politician, who would be a democrat, if the party was not anti-human life .

Addendum I:

Jim Geraghty, Nation Review, adds weight to Ann Coulter’s argument that Huckabee just isn’t all that smart.  Huckebee has picked a fight with Rush Limbaugh [4]:

“It’s elites who want to talk to Iran, not Middle America. It’s the elites who are soft on crime, not Middle America.”

You don’t claim to be running against the Washington elites and then pick a fight with the person who makes his living skewering the same elites.

Addendum II:

Should have checked first, but Michellle is all over the Huckup. [5]

Addendum III: (Bit)

Stop the ACLU [6] is also on the case, with a fairly decent reax roundup.

I said some time ago that it was not going to take a great deal to knock Huckabee of the top. The real trick here, was being patient enough to let him do it to himself.
