Mike Huckabee: “Nothing’s the Matter with Kansas?”

In last year’s Republican primaries, Mike Huckabee won Kansas, which responded well to his social conservatism and populist rhetoric.

Hundreds of Kansans waited outside Watermark Books in Wichita (which is seen hosting Thomas Frank in our movie) to meet Huckabee and buy signed copies of his most recent book, A Simple Christmas.

“I just wish the rest of the country had been as smart as Kansas obviously showed themselves to be,” Huckabee said. “There was a book called What’s the Matter with Kansas? My reaction to that is there’s nothing wrong with Kansas. It’s the rest of the country that’s crazy.”

Recent Gallup polling shows Huckabee as the Republican’s front-runner for 2012, although he has (wisely) remained reticent about whether he’ll run.
