Dobson has now said he’s going to endorse Mike Huckabee’s irrelevant campaign. Bad timing, right? Steve Benen at The Carpetbagger Report says it better than I could have:
Well, this is likely to have … no impact at all. Huckabee’s campaign is effectively over, a fact which he and his supporters are well aware of. He doesn’t have any money left, and he’s unwilling to go on the offensive against McCain, whom he’s apparently been lobbying for the VP slot.
And now, given this landscape, the Focus on the Family Chief decides it’s time to rally the troops for the guy who’s campaign is practically finished.
This makes no sense and reeks of sour grapes. Andrew Sullivan’s comment is fitting I think:
With almost comic timing, he endorses Huckabee. Do these people not see how absurd it is that they represent in any way the message of the Gospels?
