Case in point, this article from Tim Harper at the Toronto Star writing about the Value Voters Summit of the GOP. Harper devotes approximately one sentence at the end of this piece to the man who stole the show and carried a very close decimal second to the GOP front-runner. And I quote -
Though none too popular on site, Romney's heavy online support gave him a narrow victory over former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, an ordained Baptist minister.
But I guess writing a scare piece suggesting that the so-con and evangelical element of the GOP have no natural candidates makes for better copy - even if nothing could be further from the truth.
