Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee has been mulling a presidential run in 2008 for some time. He's a somewhat unconventional type. Instead of a self-important memoir, Huckabee published a book about how he lost a bunch of weight. Interesting guy. You know how some politicians--I'm thinking Bob Dole and Al Gore, for example--turn out to be interesting and semi-human once they finally get out of politics? Huckabee might just have figured that out. This is his plan for raising money for his campaign:
"I've got a map of 7-Elevens, a bunch of blue steel revolvers, and some ski masks. We're going to go all over the country and raise money in a very unique way."
Maybe he's gone a bit overboard. Or maybe he just doesn't want 2008 to be boring.
