Mike Huckabee spoke with CNN today about the tragedy in Arizona. Naturally, he was asked about the vilification of Sarah Palin. To his credit, he specifically called out the leftist media for attempting to smear Palin for political gain. He didn't even take the bait on the "blood libel" question. My respect for Mike Huckabee just went up a notch. Tim Pawlenty may want to watch and take notes.
