Mike Huckabee at the RNC

Spectacular speech by Mike Huckabee! I don't like his socially conservative policies, but I've always thought Huckabee seemed like a decent human being. He's charismatic, soft spoken, and above all has a good sense of humor. I wouldn't vote for him, but I'd gladly have lunch with him.

I'm getting a little confused by all this talk about how the Republicans want smaller government, though. Wasn't it the current Republican administration that basically turned the government into Big Brother, what with all the warrantless wiretapping, data scooping, email peeking, suspension of habeus corpus, unlimited detention without access to lawyers or charges, etc.? Isn't this the same government that wants to dictate which consenting adult couple can get married and which can't? That seems like dangerously big government to me.

Watch for Huckabee to run again in 2012 just like Romney, should McCain not win. I don't think the same can be said for Giuliani, who is the next big speaker on the docket.
