“Dear Wayne”

What is with these Arkansas governors with presidential ambitions? They can’t take responsibility for anything.

Now that the MSM and the blogosphere have discovered Mike Huckabee’s interest in the release of rapist Wayne Dumond, the latest presidential hopeful from Hope is trying to pass the buck, claiming that he did not push for the convicted felon’s parole.

Hmmm. As nimble as he is with rhetoric, surely Governor Huckabee realizes that there’s not much of a fig leaf in the letter he sent Mr. Dumond in prison:

Dear Wayne

“My desire is that you be released from prison. I feel that parole is the best way for your reintroduction to society to take place.”

Tragically, Gov. Huckabee’s desire was met; Mr. Dumond was reintroduced to society, and sexually assaulted and murdered another victim.
