Dollars to donuts that the young girl who just burned The Huckster is an HEK:

“Who is your favorite author?” Aleya Deatsch, 7, of West Des Moines asked Mr. Huckabee in one of those posing-like-a-shopping-mall-Santa moments.

Mr. Huckabee paused, then said his favorite author was Dr. Seuss.

In an interview afterward with the news media, Aleya said she was somewhat surprised. She thought the candidate would be reading at a higher level.

“My favorite author is C. S. Lewis,” she said.

More importantly, we see that Huck will lie to a 7 year old to score political points. In fact, according to the Chicago Tribune, his favorite book is by CS Lewis.

His favorite song is no doubt next. Wonder if he’ll go with the Bush brothers on that?

The last time I saw a conservative homeschooler praise Dr. Seuss politically, I blogged about his real-life liberalism. Huckabee may regret ever having this name cross his lips. 😉

I loved the “I thought he would be reading at a higher level”

what a clever girl.
