Video: Comedian-In-Chief Mike Huckabee

Mike Huckabee made another pilgrimage to The Colbert Report a few days back.

Huckabee likes to hit the late night talk shows right before a primary election, and it might well appeal to twenty-somethings who are surprised to find that he’s funny (for a politician) and can act like a regular guy. I suppose that’s a nice thing, but we’d better hope this isn’t the kind of venue our candidates start frequenting in a quest for the elusive “youth vote.” If a candidate hopes to convince the Republican base that he’s thoughtful and serious about fighting Islamic jihadists or keeping Washington from wrecking the economy, he’d better not run for Comedian-In-Chief.
These are serious times. I have more confidence in Jeri Thompson than in Mike Huckabee.
