Got a robocall last night featuring the dulcet tones of one Mike Huckabee, who wants me to come to the Barnes and Noble in West Little Rock this evening at 6 p.m. so that he can sign my copy of his new book, “Do the Right Thing.” Problem is, I don’t have a copy of the book, and I refuse to pay full hardback prices, so I’m in a real quandary here. I wonder if I can steal one from the library.
Another option would be to show up with this book and ask him to sign it, but Huck probably wouldn’t find that as funny as I do. In fact, he might just leap across the table and lodge that pen in my windpipe, so maybe that’s not such a hot idea.
Update: The schedule says he’ll be in Fort Smith at the Books-a-Million at noon, for you Sebastian County Huckabistas.
Update to the Update: KFSM in Fort Smith offers a brief report on Huck’s appearance there. The indefatigable Jason Tolbert promises a report on his blog this evening from the Little Rock appearance.
Thursday update: Arkansas Project commenter DumbArkie provides a little video from the signing in the comments section, and Steve Harrelson offers a report from the Under the Dome blog. Harrelson notes that his legislative colleague Dan Greenberg was there. Now, Greenberg is supposedly an Arkansas Project contributor, according to this blog’s masthead, but failed to contribute a report on last night’s festivities. Hey, you know what I’m thankful for today? Not my blog contributors, that’s for sure. Harrumph, harrumph.
