As Roger L. Simon writes, “Huckabee is funny…He’s come up with the best laughs so far of the campaign… maybe the only laughs:

Some have suggested there is an image of a cross behind Huckabee’s shoulder as he talks to the camera in the ad, but Huckabee dismissed that Tuesday.

“That was a book shelf behind me, a book shelf,” Huckabee told reporters while campaigning in Houston, Texas.

Huckabee was asked if his language crossed the line between faith and politics: “Absolutely not,” he said.

Huckabee went on to joke, to the delight of the reporters in the room, “I will confess this; if you play the spot backwards it says ‘Paul is dead, Paul is dead, Paul is dead.'”

Well, brain-dead at least, if you know just a scintilla of the history of the 1920s and ’30s.
