Huckabee Slags Media In Off-Script Remarks

Mike Huckabee took a little off-script rhetorical trip to get in a jab at the political media tonight in St. Paul, saying:

I would like to thank the elite media for doing something that, quite frankly, I wasn't sure could be done. That's unifying the Republican party and all of America in support of Senator McCain and Governor Palin! The reporting for the past few days have proven tackier than a costume change at a Madonna concert.

Tacky coverage, eh? Yeah, I'll tell you, the word "tacky" came to mind this afternoon when I saw that they had flown Levi Johnston all the way out to Minnesota so that the cameras could capture him receiving Maverick's blessing. But that's Mike Huckabee, always the ironist.
