Gawker assesses the great white hopes of the Republican Party for unseating Barack Obama in 2012. It finds much to snark about before concluding the nominee will be Mitt Romney or Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor. Not exactly a rave for our favorite son, however.

Mike Huckabee: He’s a charming, roly-poly former Arkansas governor with his own talk show on Fox. He used to be fat, then he got skinny, and now he is kinda fat again. He is friends with Chuck Norris. A lot of liberals find him surprisingly tolerable, and he is more than willing to charm them without losing his Conservative Christian Cred. He plays the bass.

But there is a problem: he says a lot of dumb shit and is hard to take seriously, especially now that he’s doing his “Conservative White Male Oprah” thing at Fox.
