Mike Huckabee’s Quotable Stumbles

It looks as if Mike Huckabee has decided that it is better to make up quotes for historical figures than to do the work necessary to quote them correctly. At least that’s what several media outlets have claimed recently.

So much for civic literacy, often a way of complaining about the quality of public education in the United States, especially when it comes to subjects such as history.

I do note that the book in question came out in 1998. It interests me that only now did someone decide to report this.

As before, I expect someone to say this is all part of my nasty partisan agenda to prove candidates of one party or another to be morons. All I can say is … I couldn’t do it without them. I didn’t stick words in their mouths … although they stuck words in the mouths of other people.
