The green line in this graph from pollster.com shows the trend of Mike Huckabee’s support in Iowa:
Classic J curve! I’m just doing some back-of-the-envelope math here, butif Huckabee can keep it up, he will have every Republican in Iowa voting for him by February 1, every Republican in Iowa voting for him twice by February 10th, and every Republican in Iowa casting ballots for him at a rate that will cause them to spontaneously combust sometime around 10pm on February 25th. I’m not sure I’m comfortable carrying out the extrapolation past that.
Special bonus postscript for Blogger users who followed the jump: You know how once Huckabee lost all that weight and made a committment to fitness, he started trying to push this lifestyle choice on everyone else? And how that may be kind of annoying even though you also know in your heart it’s right? I am feeling the same way about the switch to WordPress. Blogger is a stale platform and is only going to get staler. I want everyone to switch to WP. Starting with you.
