HA. HA. HA. From


From Joe Conason’s Journal (Salon Premium):

“If you find someone who is not going to vote for us, put a nail in his tire. Don’t let him out of the driveway.” Those were the instructions given by Gov. Mike Huckabee to the Republican faithful at the NRA rally yesterday in Springdale, Ark. (link doesn’t include quote, but I’ve listened to a tape). Ole Huck was just kidding — just like when he told the gun guys and gals to go back and vote for him a couple of times in those same remarks.
