Giuliani is big, Romney is rich, Fred Thompson has Big and Rich -- but Mike Huckabee is bad and righteous

Not only did John Rich of "Big and Rich" play at a Nashville fundraiser for Fred Thompson, but "Redneck Woman" Gretchen Wilson and Cowboy Troy (the world's premier country rap-star) were both there to boost Fred too.

John played acoustic guitar and sang “The Battle of New Orleans,” Johnny Horton's hit about previous Tennessee president Andrew Jackson's days as a general in the War of 1812. He also performed the Big & Rich hit “Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy.”

No word on where Big Kenny stands politically, but regardless, it would seem to be hard for the other candidates to beat this kind of firepower.

Except... that Mike Huckabee can actually play this stuff himself, whether with a pickup band or with his own band of "Capitol Offense." And we now know who Elvis is endorsing. And, if Huckabee and his band can inspire stolid New England Republicans to get down and boogie, just where will it all end?

Look out, Fred Thompson -- you're playing a most dangerous game...
