Goodbye Fred, We Barely Knew Ye
As is being reported, Fred Thompson has dropped out of the presidential race. But seriously, was he ever really in the race? Forget what you think of the guy politically — he had to be the most lackluster, lazy, and boring candidate I’ve ever seen in a presidential race. For all of the hype he generated before he declared (which seemed to take forever, I guess we know why now), he fizzled so fast it made even his most ardent supporters’ heads spin. It seemed to literally pain the guy to campaign. Too bad, though. I was hoping to get another look at that famous red truck of his.
Update: Hey…! This Newsweek article that came out after this post stole my headline!! What’s up with that? Thief!
