DAN RIEHL: "There was absolutely no reason for Huckabee to bring up the Confederate Flag issue in South Carolina, especially with such a coarse remark destined for a Democrat commercial in the Fall should Huckabee ever get the nod." That seems to be Huckabee's style -- "any weapon to hand" -- with little concern for consistency or consequences.
UPDATE: Bob Krumm says Huckabee might as well be a Democratic plant. "Notice that he’s the only candidate in the Republican field who prefers to pander to identity politics instead of talking about issues." The Republicans' Al Sharpton? Sharpton has better hair . . . .
