How low can Huck go?


If you were around in the 1980s, you surely remember that the U.S. was under attack by knife-wielding men of color who looked something like a cross between Barack Obama and L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, roaming our trash-laden streets. No? Well, you can now revise your memory with former Gov. Mike Huckabee's Learn Our History video tales for children, which sets up the "Reagan Revolution" chapter with an image of such a threatening guy — wearing a T-shirt saying "Disco Sucks." (Disco sucks? What an outrageous claim!) In the version of history Huckabee would have the younger generation embrace, Ronald Reagan saves us from the dark-skinned, both here and abroad, while declaring that "God had a plan for America." Huckabee has a plan, too.
