Almost the first loser

Mike Huckabee needs to learn how to brag better. From a Huckabee campaign press release:

RASMUSSEN REPORTS POLL: HUCKABEE "VIRTUALLY TIED"FOR SECOND IN IOWA, CLOSING ON ROMNEY
Little Rock, AR – Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has continued his strong push toward the top of the polls in Iowa, moving into a statistical tie with former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson and leading national frontrunner Rudy Giuliani by 6 percent, according to a poll released today by the Rasmussen Reports. Rasmussen Reports, the nation's most accurate polling firm during the 2004 presidential election, indicated Romney attracts 25 percent of likely caucus participants, followed by Thompson at 19 percent and Huckabee at 18 percent, "virtually tied for second."

"This poll is just the latest in a series that reflect what we have been seeing across Iowa," Huckabee said. "We are gaining more support and momentum as each day goes by and it's clear my conservative message is resonating with the people of America."

In other news, the Dawgs may be tied for 4th in the SEC East against Florida, but we're only one game away from being tied for first place. Unfortunately that game has already been played. We called it "Tennessee."

Yes, I'm taking a cheap shot here that doesn't really make a lot of sense. No, I probably wouldn't poll very well in Iowa.

I've heard many political analysts recently predicting Huckabee to come from behind and win not only Iowa, but the Republican party nomination.

Well then I'll really look stupid, won't I?

First time for everything.
