Squirrels versus Caribou

I was thinking the other day about Mike Huckabee being touted as a potential front-runner ahead of Sarah Palin for the 2012 nomination.

Why is it that mainstream media take him more seriously than the Alaskan, when they are remarkably close in terms of rural appeal? What makes shooting caribou a step too far from even fried squirrel?

Maybe it's the fact that he was once Governor of Arkansas that makes him more knowable. Sure, the knock on him is that he comes from a hick State, but so did Bill Clinton.

Don't underestimate the power of belonging to the Lower 48, with or without fried squirrels.
