Mike Huckabee for President

Faith Family Freedom Alert Reader Patti Brown, a grad student from Greenlee School of Journalism at Iowa State University is now the one of the foremost experts on a marketing niche of political campaign advertising: Bumper Stickers.

This is the stuff of academic-Ph.D dissertations: knowing more and more about less and less.

Except that Mrs. Brown is not (currently) working on a terminal degree.

So Your Business Blogger was interested in why she would devote so much valuable grad-student time on her blog about bumper stickers.

“What is your motivation?” I asked Patti Brown.

She emailed me back,

Part of my interest in studying the bumper sticker came about when my “Women deserve better than abortion” bumper sticker was removed from my car on campus. So much for the great spirit of tolerance practiced at American universities today.

Her experience is consistence with the theme of the movie on higher education, IndoctrinateU. Educational Intolerance.

Patti Brown was interested in a source citation for my claim that a bumper sticker is worth a $250 in-kind contribution to a political campaign.

News Release: Mike Huckabee Brings on Dr. Charmaine Yoest as Senior Advisor

December 05, 2007

Little Rock, AR – Former Arkansas Governor and Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee announced today the addition of noted political analyst Dr. Charmaine Yoest as a Senior Advisor in policy and communications to his presidential campaign.

“I am pleased to welcome Dr. Yoest to our team,” said Governor Huckabee. “She brings with her an in-depth knowledge of the issues and policy expertise, as well as over two decades of experience in the conservative movement. Her addition represents increased strength both substantively and organizationally. She joins us at an important juncture as we are working to communicate our policy agenda for the future.”

Dr. Yoest’s involvement in the conservative movement began when she worked in the Reagan White House. She is now an author, political analyst and commentator and holds a Ph.D. in American Government from the University of Virginia.

“This election represents a pivotal moment for our country,” said Yoest. “We need principled and courageous leadership to confront the challenges in front of us. Governor Huckabee has a refreshing and deeply held belief in the strengths of our country, and an optimistic vision for how to address our difficulties. I am so pleased to have an opportunity to work actively on behalf of a consistent, authentic conservative who has proven himself to be committed to promoting and protecting faith, family and freedom.”

Dr. Yoest is on leave of absence from her position as Vice President of Communications at the Family Research Council. (Noted for identification purposes only.)
