    Now that "Old Timer's" has set in, it is a good thing I wrote things down. It helps me stick to my story. And I need this as reference if I run for President.

    Well, I'm impressed, wonder if anyone else will buy it.

    Mike Huckabee refuses to read any book that doesn't have Mike Huckabee in it, so he wrote one for himself.

    This will be a good bedtime-read for the grandkids. Chapter 1 ... and I'm already falling asleep!

    Huckabee is pleased overall but can't help but wonder how many more he could have sold if he only superimposed Justin Beiber's hair on his jacket photograph.

    Mike's fingered Peace symbol is a little cheeky.

    I'm not ready to do the book signing yet. I'm still working on making sure I can spell my name correctly...

    First line of the book reads. "I’m not narcissistic."

    Please God, don't let Anderson put this on the Ridiculist!

    February 24, 2011 at 6:06 pm |
  27. Phyl from Motown

    My fingers say "2", the book says "twelve" and I really can't conceptualize a trillion.

    I will tell you all you need to know about your government for just $14.99.

    I pray every day that Oprah will make this one of her book club picks. Maybe I should make that call to Barack to call in a favor....

  30. Phyl from Motown

    Yeah, I considered writing this under a pseudo-name, but I really like how "Mike Huckabee" just rolls off the lips.

    Hmmmmm, i like turtles.

    I'm going to need a tutor to discuss this with me, before I hit the talk show circuit.

    Hmmm, what's this...I commuted his sentence then he killed four cops...why, I can't possibly support me for president!

    I'm most proud that this book is available at Costco-another cost saving measure, right!

    Oh wait a second. I don't remember this part.

    David Letterman was going to mention my book on his show, but he said I had two too many things....

    Is your last name spelled D-O-D or D-O-D-D Christopher?

    Former Governor Mike Huckabee waits his turn at the popular bipartisan "celebrity sperm donor" fundraiser held this week in Las Vegas.

    My favorite endorsement? It's gotta be Scott Walker-that man is going places!

    The first step is admitting you gotta problem. Hope "Double-U" isn't upset that I stole his book idea.

    I tried to explain it in a simple way but it's definitely worth more than $34.99.

    Wow, did I really write all this garbage?...

  45. Sandy PA

    Wow, I'm great. I get goose bumps with every word I read about myself.

    February 24, 2011 at 5:56 pm |
  46. Phyl from Motown

    It's really pretty clever- the book jacket covers a copy of Anderson's "A Memoir of War, Disasters, and Survival" which is a much better read.

  47. Angie, Merriam KS

    Ok, so this is what I think I think.

    I'm just reading this now so I will be prepared in case anyone asks me questions about it.
