Jonah Goldberg received a phone call yesterday from the Huckabee campaign, and here was his response:
I just got one! I’m part of the process!
I can’t tell you how rare this sensation is for me as conservative who group up in Manhattan and lives in the District of Columbia. A Republican candidate called and asked for my vote.
That’s the good news.
The bad news is his one substantive promise was to help DC get representation in Congress. I couldn’t care less about that. Why couldn’t he promise to make DC federal tax free because we don’t have representation? That’s what I want.
It’s hard to take Mike Huckabee’s candidacy seriously when he makes promises like this so easily, promises he shouldn’t keep.
