The Corner

Carrots and Sticks

I tend to think criticizing these guys where they deserve criticism is a) the right thing to do and b) the most effective way we have to get them to come our way. One or two Huckabee supporters have emailed me over the last few weeks to say that they hope their guy will modify his policies a bit in response to our criticisms. Granted, that isn’t the majority sentiment from Huckabites, but I appreciate those letters.
