Huckabee First in Iowa in 2008, Robertson SECOND in 1988
I probably missed it a time or two, but I've been watching the three cable news channels a lot the last two days. I have yet to hear a talking head on any network get it right. Pat Robertson finished SECOND in the 1988 Iowa Republican caucuses, not first. He finished with 25% behind Dole (37%) and ahead of Bush I (19%). There are certainly newsworthy parallels to draw between Robertson and Huckabee, but for heaven's sake, people, you're supposed to be professionals. Look it up and get it right.
