The Friday Funnies: Reading, writing, and barbecue

Bible Belt Blogger Frank Lockwood takes exception to Atlantic writer Nicole Allan's condescending statement about Mike Huckabee's "intellectual competence."
People are sometimes caught off guard by Huckabee’s intellectual competence because of his rural Arkansas habits (he and his wife lived in a trailer while the governor’s mansion was being renovated) and his outspoken evangelical views.
Allan's alma mater, the institution Lockwood poignantly refers to as "rural Yale," must be proud.
