Huck-a-hate

The Republican establishment’s rather open and ugly hostility toward Mike Huckabee has been widely noted.   Several reasons have been given for the Huck-a-hate, but I think one cause is most basic: Huckabee’s support is a real people powered movement.  Now, I don’t like Huckabee, and could never support him, but I do like the fact that his support (and to a lesser extent Ron Paul’s support) represent something anathema to the modern conservative movement: people thinking for themselves.
