At 3% in national polls, Mike Huckabee faces an uphill fight against more than dozen Republican candidates for the presidential nomination. But that hasn’t stopped him from adding another opponent in recent weeks: a bag of rainbow-colored chips.
They’re not just any chips. They’re a limited edition Doritos product called “Rainbow Doritos,” presented as a partnership between Dorito’s parent company Frito-Lay and the It Gets Better project. Donate $10 or more to the It Gets Better Project, an organization dedicated to fighting anti-LGBT bullying, and you get mailed a bag of Rainbow Doritos.

Even if the the chips are out of stock, the fury of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and his allies has not faded. To them, Rainbow Doritos are just the latest example of corporate pandering to a gay-friendly agenda. In a letter to Frito-Lay management, Huckabee urged them to sever ties with the It Gets Better Project because he said its creator, sex columnist Dan Savage, has a history of anti-Christian comments. Huckabee wrote that “it is beyond me to understand how a responsible corporation would think that partnering with someone who spews the vicious vitriol that Savage does would be worthy of your corporate contributions,” according to a copy of the letter obtained by the blog WND.
