Mike Huckabee sat down for two separate interviews Wednesday night to respond to Fred Thompson’s charge that, outside of his pro-life beliefs, Huckabee isn’t a true conservative.

To  Atlantic ‘s Marc Ambinder :

Let’s face it.. the Writers’ Guild is on strike and Fred is kind ofstruggling to get some lines..whoever put that line together is writingfor comedy and not for a serious political drama…

To Salon ‘s Michael Scherer :

With the Writers Guild on strike, I mean it’s obvious that Thompson is in need of some better lines.
