David Brooks, in an otherwise fawning column about Mike Huckabee, conceded that “his foreign policy thinking is thin.”

That's a dramatic understatement.

Reporter: I don’t know to what extent you have been briefed or been able to take a look at the NIE report that came out yesterday ...

Huckabee: I’m sorry?

Reporter: The NIE report, the National Intelligence Estimate on Iran. Have you been briefed or been able to take a look at it —

Huckabee: No.

Reporter: Have you heard of the finding?

Huckabee: No.

First, I suspect Huckabee is busy, but he can't pick up a newspaper?

Second, imagine the response if a leading Democratic candidate had no idea what the NIE is.
