After Ames, Mike Huckabee was a rockstar. His campaign manager said that the fundraising calls were coming fast and furious.

And now he has only raised $1m? Only $200k more than the previous quarter? Surely Ames and all that free media was worth more than that, no?

And, as Marc Ambinder points out, Ron Paul beat that by 5x?? I assume that tomorrow we get Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney. This chess game is so amusing.
