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.
