Potential presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has a tendency to conjure the Holocaust when he’s trying to make a political point. Speaking last week in Pittsburgh, he recalled a visit to a Holocaust museum in Jerusalem with his daughter, then 11, who wrote in the museum’s guestbook, “Why didn’t somebody do something?”

Huckabee was talking about the national debt when he summoned the museum anecdote, which drew a rebuke from the Anti-Defamation League’s Abraham Foxman, who initially accused Huckabee of trivializing the Holocaust. Someone else may have been annoyed by the Huckster’s comments: Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback.
