Kentuckians Arrive In Iowa On The "Huckabeast"

Word has it that some elephants have migrated from the Bluegrass to the Hawkeye State for the week. The name of their vehicle is fitting: a bus known as the "Huckabeast." As DesMoinesRegister.com reports:

The "Huckabeast" has arrived.

That's the name of the purple-and-gold bus that five Mike Huckabee volunteers from Louisville have brought to Iowa. They were in Des Moines Sunday.

To help pay for the trip, John Brewer, 46, says he sold his wedding ring on eBay. He got $150."It wasn't as popular as I thought it would be," Brewer says. "It wasn't so much the amount as the fact that we were trying to inspire people."

Brewer says Betsy, his wife of 21 years, supported the move.

"I'll get another ring eventually," he says. "The way we look at it, the ring is not what held us together for 20-some years."

Here is the YouTube video prepared by Brewer's merry band.
