Tancredo has an op-ed in the Washington Times calling President Obama "a more serious threat to America than al Qaeda" and suggesting that he ought to be impeached. He went on Fox News this afternoon to explain. And Fox News' Megyn Kelly seemed to think that Tancredo's proposal was, well, a little out there.

"Alright congressman, that's ridiculous," she said after explaining the outlines of his op-ed.

"Well you may think so," Tancredo said. "I don't."

The ex-congressman said Obama "wants to destroy the constitution" and is more dangerous than al Qaeda because he represents an internal threat.

"He is a committed idealogue, and when you have somebody like that in the White House, it is to me a scary proposition, and I think that we can muster our defenses much more easily to take care of al Qaeda than we can to take care of the president."

Kelly asked, "How is that helpful? How does that raise the level of debate?" She also told Tancredo that "it's tough to take you seriously." Ouch.
