There is something incredibly ironic and even surreal about Mike Huckabee calling Mitt Romney dishonest, as quoted in this piece on "If a person is dishonest in order to get a job do you believe that he will be honest if he gets the job?"

I also heard a similar quote on MSNBC from Huckabee's interview on Meet the Press with Tim Russert (Well, at least he appeared!), so this is clearly his closing argument for the race in Iowa. Rather than rebutting the actual facts and providing a clear view of his policy proposals, he attempts character assassination!

This is certainly a far cry from the "sermon" observed by the Washington Post, a couple of days ago, "Huckabee's Unusual Closing Speech." The reporter called that one, "strikingly different," "remarkably short on policy," and "long on values," pointing out that Huckabee "was openly critical of his own party and suggested a victory in Iowa would shake the rafters of the GOP." Should we ne surprised at any of this? What is surprising for me is his recent rise, that is itself nothing short of scary in its implications.

Who is this guy? Well, in case you had forgotten, he is number 6 on Judicial Watch's list of "Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians" for 20007
Governor Mike Huckabee (R-AR): Governor Huckabee enjoyed a meteoric rise in the polls in December 2007, which prompted a more thorough review of his ethics record. According to The Associated Press: “[Huckabee’s] career has also been colored by 14 ethics complaints and a volley of questions about his integrity, ranging from his management of campaign cash to his use of a nonprofit organization to subsidize his income to his destruction of state computer files on his way out of the governor’s office.” And what was Governor Huckabee’s response to these ethics allegations? Rather than cooperating with investigators, Huckabee sued the state ethics commission twice and attempted to shut the ethics process down.
The chutzpah (in his obvious lack of ethics then, as well as his name-calling now) is nothing short of astounding!

Update: references a press release from the Romney Campaign regarding Huckabee's appearance on Meet the Press. The differences between Huckabee's claims and actual reality are nothing short of staggering on : (1) gas taxes, (2) sentence reductions for meth abuses, (3) special breaks for illegals, and (4) state spending that more than doubled in Arkansas during his administration.
