The left didn't want to lay a glove on him, they figured he was a sure loser in the general election, storing up all their venom for their stereotypical rightie. But actually, the Huckster was a buddy of the Clintons back in Arkansas--as governor he was a foe of school choice, a big tax and spender, and yes, issued lots of pardons (tho Bill did his most damage exiting the White House).
As we see once again, actions have consequences, something liberals never want to consider. The Seattle cop-killer was pardoned by Governor Mike Huckabee.
So let's make this an easy decision for the Huckster. You're out.
