How To Tell If Huckabee Can Beat Hillary…
I Like Mike When The New York Times Attacks.
Charmaine kept saying that the so called “media tail-wind” behind Huckabee would end — not when he climbed in the polls — but when the Main Stream Media thought Huckabee might beat Hillary Clinton.
Drudge Report headliner reads: DEMS HOLD FIRE ON HUCKABEE; SEE ‘EASY KILL’ IN GENERAL ELECTION.
But. When the time came if the MSM thought Hillary might loose, then they would be on to the rescue.
Like the Reagan poster says in Charmaine’s office, “The Time Is Now.” (As usual, Charmaine got it right.)
The New York Times is coming out Sunday with a not unexpected article, with the predicted, expected bias against Huckabee. As the Alert Reader will surmise, The NYT will not make a move that does not benefit Hillary. Or indeed, without her approval.
So Huckabee is ahead. And Times is behind Hillary.

News Release: Huckabee Campaign Responds to AP/New York Times Report
December 11, 2007
LITTLE ROCK, AR – A report released tonight cites an upcoming article in the Sunday edition of The New York Times Magazine which quotes former Arkansas Governor and Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee asking a question about the content of the Mormon faith. In fact, the full context of the exchange makes it clear that Governor Huckabee was illustrating his unwillingness to answer questions about Mormonism and to avoid addressing theological questions during this campaign.
And here is the response from the Huckabee campaign,
“Governor Huckabee has said consistently that he believes this campaign should center on a discussion of the important issues confronting our nation,” said Senior Advisor, Dr. Charmaine Yoest, “and not focus on questions of religious belief. He wants to assure persons of all faith traditions of his firm commitment to religious tolerance and freedom of worship. Governor Huckabee believes that one of the great strengths of our nation lies in its diversity of thought, opinion and faith.”
The Alert Reader will remember that Huckabee, governor from Arkansas, knows how to beat the Hillary political machine. He is the only contender who can beat her operation, because he has beaten it in the past.
