Correction: Huckabee Says He Did NOT Endorse Birthright Amendment

Nevemind.

But mystery abounds. In the WashTimes story, Jim Gilchrist of the Minutemen claimed Huckabee had "promised" just this.

Mr. Huckabee, who won last week's Republican Iowa caucuses, promised Minuteman Project founder James Gilchrist that he would force a test case to the Supreme Court to challenge birthright citizenship, and would push Congress to pass a 28th Amendment to the Constitution to remove any doubt.

Did the WashTimes get this wrong? Almost certainly not. So why did Gilchrist make this claim? Did Huckabee or did he not promise this?

Perhaps Hucakbee did promise it, much as husband promises his wife to finally clean the gutters; "Yeah, yeah, sure hon, I'll get to that." Maybe -- hold on to your hats for this speculation -- Huckabee tends to make pandering political promises rather lightly without appreciating the seriousness of doing so, or the implications of doing so. Perhaps he just doesn't remember making this promise, because, frankly, just like that husband and the gutters, he never really intended to fulfill the promise anyway.
