The Republicans’ late slight hope

image
At a Fred Thompson “rally” in Iowa a supporter shows his appreciation by repeatedly yawning (left) and a large stuffed animal is so disinterested that it decides to flip around and dry hump the chair that it’s sitting on.

Good christ, what a dud:

Twenty-four minutes after he began speaking in a small restaurant the other day, Fred D. Thompson brought his remarks to a close with a nod of his head and an expression of thanks to Iowans for allowing him to “give my thoughts about some things.”

Then he stood face to face with a silent audience.

“Can I have a round of applause?” Mr. Thompson said, drawing a rustle of clapping and some laughter.

“Well, I had to drag that out of you,” he said.

Still, Mr. Thompson at times seems to be looking for his sea legs. In an interview with Kay Henderson of Radio Iowa on Wednesday, in talking about Iran, he referred to the “Soviet Union and China.” (Ms. Henderson, at the end of her blog post on the exchange, wrote: “No, I did not mistype. Thompson said Soviet Union rather than Russia.”)

I was admittedly slightly worried about a Thompson candidacy when news about his potential presidential run first surfaced, but now it looks like this dull-witted wingnut sloth couldn’t even beat a parking ticket ... or Mike Gravel.

More on the late slight hope here, here and here.

And if you want a hoot (I couldn’t stop laughing), go check out The Fred Thompson Forum, which pretty much proves that Ron Paul supporters are the funniest (and oddest) backers working the intertubes during this primary season.  My fave posters over there are “Ted Kaczynski” and “itsaDoocy.” Here are a few quick highlights:

Fred is an intellectual:
“I recently heard on Fox news that Thompson supports a curfew of 1 AM for all people living in areas that are reported as potential targets of terrorists. I’m not sure how I feel about this, I am scared shitless of the arabs…. but i like to go out drinking until 2 AM some nights. I guess sometimes you have to sacrifice certain things for patriotism though. What do u guys think? I’m still really up in the air on this one.”

itsaDoocy:
“1 Am is a small price to pay for Safety. Id much rather go to sleep at 1 Am then have to fight terrorists over here.”

FullFredAhead (excerpted):
Little know facts about Fred for all of you patriots.

-Fred once saved a mans life by killing him.

-Fred once helped a woman give birth at 40000 feet on an airplane. Only it was a dog in his shed.

-Fred has never once played with a doll.

-Fred can sit so still on a couch you would think he was dead.

-Fred beat Chuck Norris in an Arm-wraslin match. Chuck was so upset by the loss he kicked Freds dog. Now that dog don’t hunt.

-Freds bones are coated in Adamantium.

-Fred was travelling accross the atlantic and had to take the worst crap in his life. He leaned his butt over board and dropped a duece so large that when it hit the sea floor is caused a catastophic earth quake. Thats how the Mariannas trench was formed.

-Fred is twice the man Guiliani is and half the man he used to be.

Just poke around and you’ll find plenty of twisted guffaws in there.  I couldn’t find the post, but I loved the one that referred to “Giuliani shaking down penguins in Antarctica.” Now I have to decide who I’m going to sign up as. Please leave suggestions in the comments.
