Mike Huckabee didn’t surprise anyone with his announcement tonight that he wasn’t going to run for president. But he tortured the few people who cared about his announcement and the political reporters who had to watch by waiting until the end of his show to make the announcement. Maybe he’s taking cues from Donald Trump.
Before the announcement, Huckabee had washed-up rocker Ted Nugent plat “Cat Scratch Fever” in front of the lamest audience I’ve ever seen. It looked like they cleared out the nearest nursing home and dragged the poor folks in the listen to old Ted. It didn’t sound that bad, and Huckabee seemed to do fine on the base, but watching Nugent play in front of this audience was just pathetic.
