Huckabee generously contributed a dollop of rhetorical snake oil:
Speaking to NPR, the 2008 presidential candidate and current Fox News personality noted that the Supreme Court had decided "in three different centuries" that birth in the United States assured one U.S. citizenship. The discussion, in essence, was moot.
(Sounds neat â€“ but just a slick phrase. The iniquitous U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark judicial legislation was in 1898. The matter has not reached the Supreme Court since.)
The only question is if he is speaking up out of programmed obedience to the cheap-labor-gobbling agri-business outfits which rule his home state of Arkansas, or sycophancy to his neocon present employer, Fox News.
