Huckabee: The "Vertical" Candidate

WTF? indeed.

Can anyone explain what the hell that means? Vertical? I guess if you're main opponent was Fred Thompson you might push the fact that you spend most of your time standing up. But seriously, is there something I'm missing here? Or is this the weirdest campaign I've ever heard?

I mean, at a minimum it's setting the bar for his presidency pretty low, right?


  1. I think that refers to the fact that he has a personal relationship with God. I could be wrong on this, but I believe this to be the case.

  2. I Think Huckabee is Trying to Say He is A little More Progressive than the others. The Problem he is Pro War. And He is too Religous for the Left.
    The funny Thing Is I Watched Fox news Coverage of Iowa (Just To See What They Had to Say). When I Turned to Fox they Had Rush Limbaugh on Trashing Huckabee Saying That Huckabee Would Lose Against a Democrat! Can you Say Irony?

    Both of you give Huckabee too much credit. I think it was just a stupid choice of words.

    I do so hope he becomes the nominee for the GOP though.

  4. I have to agree with your WTF link-the term 'vertical' is a key word for evangelical christians.

    He can't come out and say he's the candidate God will speak to, so he chooses the term 'vertical', one that the mass media can't openly mock because no one knows what the hell that means.
