Taking Taranto's Temperature

More

A reader notices something:

I know he's not your favorite pundit, but he is a good measuring stick.

Lately, he's been going after Huckabee and propping up Romney.  Yesterday, Taranto stated that, "Huckabee put his foot in his mouth in 1992, and he is still trying to extract it."  He later went on to prop up Romney against an editorial in the NYT against "an utterly mindless statement" but refused to mention the mindlessness of "Freedom requires religion just as religion requires freedom."

Methinks the Rudy Right is really, really scared of Huckabee and has Romney as their firewall in case Rudy isn't viable after Iowa and New Hampshire.

Every complacent secular Republican who has scorned those of us worried about the fundie right is beginning to squirm in the face of Huckabee's surge.
