Mike Huckabee launched his new “Vertical Politics” website yesterday, and it’s a nice looking site. It has something to do with Americans wanting leaders who will lift us up, rather than focusing on the “horizontal” divisions of left and right. Or something like that.
He’s been using this “vertical politics” gimmick for like two years, and to tell you the truth, I still have no idea what the hell he’s talking about. Someone—Sarah, Chip, anyone—make him stop, because it doesn’t make any damn sense. Look, if you’re running for president, I’d really just like to know what you think about foreign policy without my having to run to find a protractor and graph paper to figure it out.
Update: Here’s some video of Huck explaining “vertical politics” on something called “Vertical Day,” which is apparently some kind of new holiday. It clarifies almost nothing:
P.S. That’s three Huckabee posts in the last 16 hours, so it looks like Huck’s trying to take over this blog again. So I’m placing a temporary moratorium on any more Huckabee posting, unless he does something totally noteworthy. Like, if he jumps over Snake River Canyon on a jetcycle, I’ll be all over it.
