Mike Huckabee joins Fox News

I guess he's written off any chance of becoming McCain's VP choice. I'm curious to see if he brings his trademark humor to his new job. But I have to say, he's got such great timing, he'd make a better sitcom actor than a political pundit:

Mike Huckabee, a former Republican presidential hopeful, has been hired by Fox News Channel as a political commentator.

"Gov. Huckabee's campaign experience and knowledge of politics makes him a great addition to our ongoing election coverage," Bill Shine, senior vice president of programming, said in a statement Thursday.

Huckabee, who served as governor of Arkansas for 10 1/2 years, dropped out of the race in March, after John McCain won enough delegates to clinch the Republican nomination. Despite a financially strapped campaign, Huckabee won the leadoff caucuses in Iowa and seven other states.

"I hope to bring the unique perspective from `inside the dragon's belly' as well as to try and speak for the millions of hardworking middle-class Americans who really do feel that their voices are not being heard," Huckabee said in a statement released by his daughter, Sarah. "I saw that on the campaign trail and continue to see as I speak to groups of all kinds around the country as well as campaign for other candidates."

This confirms Huckabee a no-go for VP.
This is not rocket science.

If Sarah Palin decides to drag her newborn son all over the country campaigning for McCain, she'll be recalled by Alaska voters before the convention.

You're right Ted, it's not rocket science, but apparently it is brain surgery. As in lobotomy. Jeez.

The haters and the Romney flunkies just keep trying to discredit Mike Huckabee. Meanwhile, his appeal continues to grow.

The fact that she has NO experience and NO creditability was not considered in the debate. We are now reaping the consequences of electing someone quite incompetent to do this job. Note: Don't Blame Me- I Didn't Vote for Her. First time in my life, since 1980, that I did not vote for a Republican. Perhaps, to be hot to some a compliment, for Sarah it is her idenity. However, looks do fade, but your mind remains. Sarah Palin has lost her mind way before this. But really she has no valuable content, no judgement valid and no interest but her own. The only "hot" Sarah is, is a "HOT MESS". Sarah is a disaster! Tax and spend and promote welfare is not good for the nation. She is over her head in her life, let alone in a national political position. She is a Valley girl. Fur sure fur sure... Check Out the parody songs about Sarah. I can use some help here to save my nation from this fraud.

Huckabee is a very smart, shrewd campaigner. His vp stock just rose tremendously by getting the Fox position. OF course, he has a loop-hole in that contract of the vp spot. He will now have plenty of air time to toot McCain's horn and have people get to know him better. Those who know Mike Huckabee, like Mike Huckabee. Even liberals, if honest, will have to admit it is very hard not to like him. He's not mad at anyone, has a great sense of humor, has strong consistent beliefs, even if you don't believe like him, he is admirable!! This man is pulling a Reagan and he WILL be next in line for the 2012/2016 race....Still believe Senator MCCain will choose him as vp is he has any sense at all....
