Man of the people

It is an endless source of amusement to watch wealthy politicos try to come of as just one of us. George W Bush was exceptionally good at this despite all evidence that he was the Ivy League millionaire raised Episcopalian member of the elite.

Here come's another one: Mike Huckabee is moving to Florida and is building a $3 million mansion to accommodate his modest needs.

He gets big bonus points in the amusement category by claiming that it is a personal decision NOT based on political needs (e.g. Florida primaries) but that it accommodated his travel needs to New York for his TV show on Fox News.

New York via Florida? Must fly his own jet plane too.
