The Huckster, whom supports would have you think doesn’t do any pandering, recently went pandering in West Des Moines Iowa where he came across little 7-year old Aleya Deatsch.

“Who is your favorite author?” Aleya Deatsch, 7, of West Des Moines asked Mr. Huckabee in one of those posing-like-a-shopping-mall-Santa moments.

Mr. Huckabee paused, then said his favorite author was Dr. Seuss.

In an interview afterward with the news media, Aleya said she was somewhat surprised. She thought the candidate would be reading at a higher level.

“My favorite author is C. S. Lewis,” she said.

I’m surprised he didn’t answer God because he wrote the Bible. Seriously though, I’m not surprised that he picked the leftist-leaning author of The Lorax and The Butter Battle Book. After all, the Huckster himself leans to the left.
