I think that the only question left in Iowa is whether these attacks work. If this kind of thing sticks, then it is lights out for Mike Huckabee.

If it doesn’t then this guy wins Iowa and is looking might fine.

For more background, go here. The soft-on-crime meme could sit.

On the other hand, Iowa could just be Iowa. I am not convinced that this stuff works in a low-turnout caucus. I don’t think that anyone is persuading undecideds. Perhaps people are being turning off to being Huckabee supporters.

But I think that they are going to see a forgiving pastor. ….

And the anecdotes that I am hearing of grassroots energy for Huckabee suggest that there will be an enormous amount of forgiveness.
