Is Huckabee the Republican Al Sharpton?

Instapundit asks the question and I think the answer has to be yes. The Huckster's bringing up the issue of the South Carolina state flag using the confederate flag is a festering wound especially to the Republican party which has sought to distance itself from racists who have tried to worm their way into the party. The only reason to bring it up is to try an appeal to the worst instincts of the Republican voters in South Carolina. I hope they will reject this pandering jerk.

When Fred Thompson accused Mike Huckabee that he was following the model of the Democratic Party he was right. He might also have been right to accuse Huckabee of being a Democratic plant. [Emphasis added.]

It's the only thing that makes sense other than the possibility that his corruptibility knows no bounds and Huckabee is willing to say anything to get his hands on the levers of power. This possibility is just to evil to contemplate.

More from Hitchens:

People who think with their epidermis or their genitalia or their clan are the problem to begin with. One does not banish this specter by invoking it. If I would not vote against someone on the grounds of "race" or "gender" alone, then by the exact same token I would not cast a vote in his or her favor for the identical reason. Yet see how this obvious question makes fairly intelligent people say the most alarmingly stupid things.
