Robert Novak on Dick Morris -- add David Bossie and you have a trifecta of slime, an axis of evil if you prefer. Read on on for the activities of Dick Morris, the former political adviser to both Bill Clinton and Mike Huckabee who's been touting Huckabee in his recent columns:
People on Republican mailing lists this week received an appeal for funds from Dick Morris, President Bill Clinton's political strategist in 1995-1996, asking for a contribution of between $25 and $100 or more to finance a film documentary critical of Sen. Hillary Clinton.
Signing the letter as ''Former Clinton Adviser,'' Morris wrote: ''If you liked how the Swift Boat Veterans turned the tide against John Kerry, you understand how a top Clinton aide can turn the tables and stop a Clinton-style liberal from becoming the next president of the United States.''
Morris' appeal was made through the Presidential Coalition, run by conservative activist Dave Bossie. The letter described Morris as dedicated to electing presidents like Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. Since 1996, Morris has been an author, columnist and television commentator.
