“Folks, I didn’t major in math. I majored in miracles, and I still believe in those too.” –Mike Huckabee, GOP presidential candidate.
Wow, what a bombshell, and I’m not talking about communications lobbyist, Vicki Iseman, on the lower left.
This broke last night, and I have to tell you…my mouth actually gaped for several minutes.
The stories question the ethics of McCain writing letters and pushing legislation involving television station ownership that would have benefited Iseman’s clients.
Additionally, McCain aides worried a romantic relationship might be taking place and wanted to save McCain from himself.
Both McCain and Iseman deny romantic involvement. McCain is calling this a smear campaign. According to the talking heads, rumors have been circulating about all this for years in D.C. and both the L.A. Times and New York Times have been sitting on the story.
By the way, as this alleged relationship was happening (or shortly before) John McCain voted to impeach Clinton on both counts. One of those counts had to do with concealing his plan to help Monica Lewinsky land a job.
Personally, I don’t believe this will do much for Huckabee, but it could hurt McCain. Those evangelicals thinking they could stomach the Senator from Arizona may find this one hard to swallow. I fully suspect Huckabee had heard the rumors, and this was the miracle he was alluding to. I’m not being particularly cynical about Huckabee either. His comments delivered with fake innocence about Romney believing Jesus and Satan are brothers is straight out of the Baptist’s Mormon hating Handbook. Huckabee’s taking some evil glee out of this McCain story.
