Huckabee vs. "Them"

From CBS News' Joy Lin:

MONTGOMERY, ALA. -- Mike Huckabee's got a new campaign sign but he's not taking credit for it.

On one side, the usual: "I like Mike." The other: "Us versus Them."

"Can you tell me who 'them' is?" I asked at a press conference.

"I don't know," he said. He speculated the signs had been printed by the local Huckabee hub. "I've seen a few of them for the first time this week myself."

But on second thought, he said, "I think it's us against you," pointing his finger in my camera. "I think it's you, Joy, that we're against. You're the them." He laughed.

Me: "Seriously! You mean the media?"

"Nahh. You guys are okay, you guys are all right," he laughed.

Then, in a 180, he stopped smiling and deadpanned. "Except you. Everybody else is okay."
