Which is worse? Mike Huckabee lying about President Obama's upbringing? Or Mike Huckabee not having a clue what he's talking about? Although Obama was born in Hawaii and spent four years in Indonesia as a child, Huckabee said in a recent radio interview that Obama's outlook was shaped by "growing up in Kenya with a Kenyan father and grandfather." On another radio program, Huckabee added, in a pathetic display of xenophobia and religious intolerance: “Most of us grew up going to Boy Scout meetings and, you know, our communities were filled with Rotary Clubs, not madrassas." Although I never cared for Huckabee's politics, I always had the impression he was an honorable guy. I can be so naive sometimes.
