We have to stop meeting like this.

I’ve already written a column this week about Mike Huckabee’s worthwhile comments on the Republican-forced government shutdown. And there he goes again. In a speech in Texas, Huckabee again commented sanely on the Republican Party “demolition derby” and “egocentric” politicians.


But today’s grabber in the local news coverage was a comment that followed his observation on all-or-nothing political gamesmanship.

He went as far as calling the Rolling Stones the “greatest political scientists of all time” for making popular the idea, ”You Can’t Always Get What You Want” through their song, which hit the Billboard Hot 100 in 1973.

Sympathy for the devil.
