Dispatches from the Creation Wars

David Barton and Mike Huckabee traded compliments at the Rediscovering God conference in Iowa over the weekend, with Huckabee going to far as to say that every single American student should have to read the welter of lies Barton puts out about American history.

And I just wish that every single young person in America would be able to be under his tutelage and understand something about who we really are as a nation. I almost wish that there would be a simultaneous telecast and all Americans would be forced, forced, at gunpoint no less, to listen to every David Barton message and I think our country would be better for it.

This was met with applause.
