If you want to see who Gov Huckabee has modelled himself after...

.. check out A Face in the Crowd, a 1957 movie starring Andy Griffith and Patricia Neal, directed by Elia Kazan and written by Budd Schulberg.

It has to do with a folksy charming country bumpkin type and what dark nastiness is going on behind his smiling face.

Someone I knew, who saw the movie waay back then said "I'll never be able to watch Mayberry again."

I just get that feeling from him, and I like him, too. But when I read about his tenure as Arkansas governor (since he was a Republican, it was about monetary greed rather than the Democratic govenor's sexual greed) I start to wonder.
