Rudy's Christmas Ad: With Jesus Having Endorsed Huckabee, Rudy Promotes Endorsement By Santa
Update: Huckabee Catcbhes Giuliani For National Lead

Eh. It's okay. The joke isn't very funny and seems... well, why is he talking about fruitcakes?

At least he doesn't claim that no one can discuss his record during this season of celebrating the birth of our Savior.

Huckabee defended his own Christmas "non-political" political ad on the Today show, with Hot Air grabbing the video. Bryan says the "conspiracy theory" about the cross in the background is "not only unfounded, but it plays right into Huckabee's hands." I agree with the latter but not with the former -- I think it was deliberate. But it sounds awful silly to go yammering on about a cross, so I didn't bother. And even bringing the topic up allows Huckabee to claim that he's just defending Christmas against those who want to destroy it.

I think the MSM would do better to ask why this "non-political" ad is only running in the three earliest political contest states of Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina, and if Mike Huckabee really believes that holiday season conveniently stop any and all examination of his record, or if that's instead an unsavory attempt to use religion and the birth of Christ as shield.
A new Mitt Romney ad, meanwhile, touts his role in helping find his business partner's daughter, who'd gone missing in NYC for three days.

At AdAge they think it's a none too subtle reminder that while Romney will help save your daughter, Huckabee will kill her by releasing rapists and killers from jail. It's also a dig at Giuliani, I guess: Mitt Romney came to NYC to do the job that Giuliani couldn't.

Update: A poll says that Huckabee is within a meaningless 1% of Giuliani for the national lead.

Those who don't like Giuliani or Romney would really do themselves a favor by supporting a credible candidate for president rather than Huckabee.
