Un-American chickenhawk Tancredo does his best McCarthy impression

So in addition to being a chickenhawk who got out of fighting for his country, we now we find out that Tancredo is an un-American McCarthyite to boot:

The former congressman from Colorado and 2008 Republican presidential candidate blasted President Obama, saying “people who could not even spell the word ‘vote’, or say it in English, put a committed socialist ideologue in the White House. His name is Barack Hussein Obama.”

Media Matters has the video.

Remember when Markos called Tancredo on his non-war-record – Markos is a veteran – and Tancredo threw a hissy fit and stormed off the set? I just can’t shake the whole Miami Vice goes La Cage aux Folles motif of an aging Tancredo in his super cool 1980s collarless shirt and jacket below. A cheap toupé and some hair plugs would have made it complete. Oh, never mind…
