After trailing him in last month’s Ames straw poll and failing to get anywhere near the media attention, Sam Brownback is still beating up Mike Huckabee, a former Baptist preacher, for being insufficiently conservative on social issues. In a release sent out shortly after last night’s Values Voter debate the Brownback camp said Huckabee showed “ignorance of [a] key pro-life issue” because he appeared confused by a question during the debate about the so-called Mexico City Policy, which bars U.S. funds from going to family planning organizations overseas that offer or even discuss the option of abortion. After blowing the competition out of the water with 64-percent support in the Values Voter straw poll, God-o-Meter doubts that Huckabee has much cause for concern.
