I'm with you, Attila

Rampaging Hun that she is, Little Miss Attila has moved her blog to a new domain, and decides to announce her hypocrisy:
I get bent out of shape when people want to knock Palin out of the running prematurely for 2012, but I'd love to do the exact same thing to Huckabee. It isn't about immigration, of course; that ain't a hot-button issue for me. It isn't even about welfare. It's about the fact that he doesn't seem to have a libertarian cell in his entire body. Not even a libertarian molecule.
Today's Holiday Book Sale feature items are just the ticket to cure LCDS (Libertarian Cell Deficiency Syndrome). Have a very Austrian Christmas!

UPDATE: Gary Bauer plays whack-a-mole with the Huckster, criticizing him on . . . foreign policy? To my mind, Huckabee is just "compassionate conservatism," without the conservatism. I'm all about the Spirit of '94 -- abolish the federal Department of Education, defund the National Endowment for the Arts, zero out the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. And then once we've done that kind of minor trimming, then the real cutting begins. In my book, you're not really conservative until you've been called "mean-spirited." I like Grover Norquist's idea of steadily shrinking the federal government until it's small enough to drown in a bathtub.


  1. This kind of thinking is precisely why conservatives will never again control the levers of power in America. This is an emerging center-left nation. Future debates will be how much the NEA's budget should be increased, not whether it should be dissolved. Today's conservatives will be marginalized to the point that they are regarded as the lunatic fringe by the majority of the population. Remember my words 20 years on.

  2. Anon,
    Right, this is all that was said in 1992 when the "great" William Jefferson Blythe Clinton became president. And we know that two years later, the United States said "No thanks, you are going too far" and put the brakes on the radicalism. Remember the Republicans taking congress and a slew of governorships and whole state houses? We shall see in two years time when something that a lot of people have not heard of-inflation-rears its ugly head.
