Making a buck off 9/11

Just in time for the 10th anniversary of 9/11, Mike Huckabee is hawking a new "history" DVD on the terror attacks as part of his "Learn Our History" series.

"Join the TimeCycle Academy as they travel to one of the darkest days in our history ... but also a day of incredible bravery and a triumph of the American spirit," the preview video teases, as the attacks are quickly followed by President Bush promising retribution and the U.S. "breaking apart Al Qaeda."

In an interview last week on TV's 700 Club, Huckabee said the video would teach kids "what really happened that day." It will also cost $10, though the Huckabee website says a portion will got to survivors.

Agreeing with 700 Club host Pat Robertson, who suggested that education is failing American children, Huckabee said, "If you look at a typical textbook today, you'd think that America is an imperialistic, war-mongering country that's gone around pushing people around for the last 250 years." He didn't say which typical textbooks he was talking about.

Also cashing in off 9/11: The Tea Party's Campaign to Defeat Barack Obama, which is selling $10 commemorative pins of the World Trade Center attack, so that Americans "never, ever forget." See, without a pin, you might forget, like so many have forgotten Pearl Harbor.
