The Huck Strikes Back: Rev. Huckabee Takes On the GOP Establishment

He has no chance of winning the GOP nomination, but that hasn't caused former Baptist minister and Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee to tone down his rhetoric.

Speaking earlier today, Huckabee attacked the Republican Party's play-it-safe activists and voters, saying they have turned their backs on the Republican base.

Here's a portion of one story we found on Huckabee's latest broadside:
Long shot Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee lashed out at GOP leaders on Wednesday, saying they no longer represent the views of the party's support base.

“Republicans have decided that elections are a messy thing, and anointings and coronations are much better,” Huckabee said in an appearance on MSNBC. “It's that kind of attitude that is going to be the death of the Republican Party in this country.”

The former Arkansas governor and ordained Southern Baptist minister said Republican Party establishment seems to want little dissent in the party.

“We just want everybody to line up on the stage, let's build a campfire, toast marshmallows, sing ‘Kumbaya' together,” Huckabee said.
