Huckabee Loses and the Confederate Flag isn't the draw it used to be

Monday, January 21, 2008

Go figure. Huckabee loses to McCain in South Carolina this weekend even though he was grasping at strings campaigning feverishly on the platform of the confederate flag and how it should be a state's issue, hoping to appeal to those voters who just want to "preserve some American heritage".

Here's a pointer for Hucky.

If he really wants to get his message across to those who want to "preserve American Heritage", instead of saying things like "You don't like people from outside the state coming in and telling you what to do with your flag" and "In fact, if somebody came to Arkansas and told us what to do with our flag, we'd tell 'em what to do with the pole, that's what we'd do." - he just needs to say it in plain, easy to understand language, that his constituency can understand:

"Hi, my name's Hucky, and like you, I can't stand those ch**nks, sp*cs, and n***ers, and want to let them know they aint welcome here in these parts by allowing you, true Americans, to wave our beloved confederate flag, because nothin' other than a good lynching tells those dirty foreigners and mongrels better, that Americans, true Americans, still care about this God given land and we're not about to let any of those bastards have it because America should be pure - beautiful, snow white pure."

I mean let's face it - if you want to reach your target audience, you've got to speak the truth.
