Mike Huckabee’s Thoughts on the Leaker, in an Odd Location


This paragraph, noting the location and purpose of Huckabee’s appearance, reads like something out of The Onion. Of course, it’s Politico:

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says execution is the appropriate punishment for the leaker who provided thousands of State Department documents to the website WikiLeaks. “Whoever in our government leaked that information is guilty of treason, and I think anything less than execution is too kind a penalty,” Huckabee, a likely presidential candidate, told reporters Monday during a stop at The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation & Library to sign copies of his new children’s book, “Can’t Wait Till Christmas!”

Ask not for whom the “Carol of the Bells” tolls, leaker, it tolls for thee.
