Forget Richard Vigueri............here's what Ann Coulter has to say
"Conservatives unhappy with our Republican presidential
candidates seem to be drifting aimlessly toward Fred Thompson and
Mike Huckabee in the misguided belief that these candidates are more
conservative than Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney. This is like
breaking up with Bobby Brown so you can date Phil Spector.
"On illegal immigration, Huckabee makes George Bush sound
like Tom Tancredo. He has compared illegal aliens to slaves brought
here in chains from Africa, saying, 'I think frankly the Lord is
giving us a second chance to do better than we did before.'
"Toward that end, when an Arkansas legislator introduced a
bill that would prevent illegal aliens from voting and receiving
state benefits, Huckabee denounced the bill, saying it would rile up
'those who are racist and bigots.'
"He also made the insane point that companies like Toyota
would not invest in Arkansas if the state didn't allow non-citizens
to vote because it would "send the message that, essentially, 'If you
don't look like us, talk like us and speak like us, we don't want you.'"
"Like all the (other) Democratic candidates for president,
he supports a federal law to ban smoking -- unless you're an illegal
alien smoking at a Toyota plant. (I just realized why Mike Huckabee
can't run for president as a Democrat -- they've already got Mike Gravel.)
"Huckabee also joined with impeached president Bill Clinton
in a campaign against childhood obesity. What, O.J. wasn't available?
"Bill and Mike's excellent adventure lasted about one week
in May 2005 -- or just long enough to burnish the image of the
president who committed perjury and obstruction of justice in a civil
rights suit against him, molested the help and was credibly accused
of rape by Juanita Broaddrick.
"Huckabee teamed up with that guy to talk to children about
healthy eating habits. Ironically, the obesity campaign kicked off
almost exactly nine years from the very Palm Sunday on which
President Clinton used a cigar as a sexual aid on Monica Lewinsky in
the Oval Office.
"What is with Republicans? Clinton isn't your average
ex-president, like Jerry Ford. This isn't even Jimmy Carter or Walter Mondale.
"Decent people shun Clinton, but elected Republicans keep
trying to rehabilitate him. President Bush sends his own father on a
feel-good 'tsunami-relief campaign' with this guy, and Huckabee
visits schoolchildren with him.
"In 1999, Sen. Fred Thompson joined legal giants like Sens.
Jim Jeffords, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins to vote against
removing Bill Clinton from office for perjury.
"Thompson, whom President Nixon once called "dumb as hell,"
claimed to have carefully studied the Constitution and determined
that perjury by the president of the United States did not constitute
'high crimes and misdemeanors.' He must have been looking at one of
those living, breathing Constitutions we've heard so much about.
"When the framers chose the phrase "high crimes and
misdemeanors" for the Constitution, they were using a term taken from
British parliamentary impeachments. There's a 600-year history of
what this phrase means -- and Clinton met it about a dozen times
before he gave a single statement under oath or suborned a single
"It has been used in this country and in Britain to remove
one government official for making 'uncivil addresses to a women,'
another for 'notorious excesses and debaucheries' and another for
'frequenting bawdy houses and consorting with harlots.' Or, as Bill
Clinton used to call it, 'a three-day weekend.'
"The House didn't even impeach Clinton for his legion of
'notorious excesses and debaucheries.' He was impeached for excesses
that also happen to be felonies. For a nation of laws, there are no
more serious offenses than perjury and obstruction of justice.
"The entire Supreme Court -- including the justices Clinton
appointed -- boycotted Clinton's State of the Union address after his
impeachment trial. That's what they thought of crimes that attack the
"Rep. James Rogan lost his congressional seat because he
stuck by his principles as a manager of Clinton's impeachment.
Lifelong Democrat David Schippers abandoned his party's lockstep
defense of Clinton to pursue Clinton's impeachment as the House
Judiciary Committee's chief counsel. Rep. Henry Hyde saw an affair he
had in 1965 become front-page news because he wouldn't waver from
doing his job under the Constitution."
