Did Not See That Coming

From the CNN blog:
Huckabee is also facing heat for likely having to cross the writers' picket line to appear on the show [Leno], though earlier Wednesday he told reporters he didn't believe he would have to cross the picket line.

“My understanding is that there was a special arrangement for the late night shows and the writers have made this agreement to let the late night shows come back on. So I don’t anticipate it’s a crossing of the picket line. I support the writers by the way, unequivocally. Absolutely."

In actuality, only David Letterman's show has reached an agreement. Huckabee's campaign says the candidate will still appear on the show.

So the Huck is totally crossing a picket line and I love that this guy just can't find a loop that he's actually in, but I am somewhat shocked (is that possible?) to see that that he supports the writers. Unequivocally. Absolutely. Is there some small slice of Republican voters that would expect their candidate to support the writers' strike? Given that he totally flubs the details, this statement reads as off the cuff, as if the Huck actually does support the writers, to the extent that he has any idea what he is talking about. God bless him.
