Hucakbee's priority: Iran NIE or Britney?

by Turkana

Mike Huckabee's little joke about Bush never reading National Intelligence Estimates got a little play, in some media. But the real story from the same original article is the Republican frontrunner's explanation for his own failure to read the December NIE on Iran. As reported by Davenport's Quad-City Times, Huckabee said:

“The point I’m trying to make is that, on the campaign trail, nobody’s going to be able, if they’ve been campaigning as hard as we have been, to keep up with every single thing, from what happened to Britney last night to who won ‘Dancing with the Stars.’”

It's hard work, and there's so much going on in the world. Truly, the right man for times.
