Ross coins the term Huckenfreude:
Pleasure derived from the outrage of prominent conservative pundits over the rising poll numbers of Mike Huckabee.
There are moments when I feel this, but it is balanced by an equally powerful feeling of Huckenschreck, the gnawing horror that Mike Huckabee might just be nominated and have an outside shot at acquiring immense power. As a wrecking ball who smashes the rest of the field and drives the establishment into fits of insanity, Huckabee is great. As a candidate for President, he is just about as awful as the people he is tearing down. If he could just clear the field of its more objectionable members and then go away, that would be ideal.
