Huckabee Raises Money in the Caymans

Mike Huckabee (Buffoon-AR) is took the weekend off from campaigning to visit the Caymans and pick up some cash. Get this:

Mr. Huckabee said the matter was simple: He came here because he needed the money.Yet, when asked how much he received, he suggested that he did not know.

“The speakers’ bureau does it, and I sign a contract, they send it,” Mr. Huckabee said. “I could know it if I dig through my files.”

He added, “There are a lot of different ways in which the expenses and different parts of it are accounted for before I ever get mine; there’s a commission.” Then he added, “It’s not nearly as much as a senator makes in a year.

You’ve got to be kidding me. That’s the benchmark? A senator’s annual salary? I’m hoping that answer was directed at some inane question from a reporter and not something that just occurred to Huckabee at the moment. As if the speaking fee for a single evening with him is even close to the level of a senator’s annual salary…perhaps of his competitor former-competitor, John McCain.
