FRED THOMPSON is the best person to lead this country. He is a true conservative and has been his entire life. All one has to do is check his record to see this.
MY RESPONSE: I did check his record. It’s on IMDB. He’s a TV actor, a doofus, and a buffoon.

I think Fred can bring America back together, if that’s even possible. America needs a rebirth of patriotism and honor. Republicans also need a rebirth. President Reagan was our last rebirth and he can never be duplicated. Fred Thompson will bring his own down-to-earth common sense to this country.. A little of the good old days of faith, federalism and family would do well for this country. If a conservative runs as a conservative, he will win!
Think of it this way: Eight years of another Clinton White House? Now if that is not a sufficient enough reason to pull together as a nation, and fight this socialist liberal takeover of our government, what is? Folks, we are in for the fight of our lives, just as our young men and women are fighting for our freedoms in Iraq and Afghanistan, we must fight for our nation right here and now! I truly believe Fred Thompson is the one man who can pull this nation back together! Mike Huckabee, John McCain or Rudy Giuliani will just tear us apart.
MY RESPONSE: I think eight years of another Clinton White House would be great.

Go Fred! The man is a genuine conservative, a leader, a statesman, well spoken, and cool headed. The candidate for grown ups.
MY RESPONSE: Fred Thompson is not the candidate for grown-ups. He is the candidate for fans of his television and film acting work who don’t realize that he’s running for President.

Since you want a national law banning smoking (like Huckabee) then you might be comfortable with a national law banning gay marriage! How about a national law banning idiot leftist bloggers who use their lipstick inappropriately….
MY RESPONSE: If gay marriage, or any kind of marriage for that matter, caused lung cancer I would be in favor of banning it. However, last time I checked, gay marriage does not cause lung cancer. And a “national law banning idiot leftist bloggers who use their lipstick innappropiately” sounds like a perfectly sound and reasonable suggestion. I have absolutely no idea what it means but I do feel that innappropriate lipstick use could be a real problem if it got out of hand so kudos for nipping it in the bud.

“When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.
When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.
When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn’t a Jew.
When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.”
Sure, you applaud Huckabee going after the smokers! But what will stop him from goring your ox? Think!
MY RESPONSE: If Huckabee gores my ox then it will mean that I had an ox which at the present seems unlikely considering I swore after my last ox that I wouldn’t get another one. That said: never say never.

Fred Thompson is an old fuck stuck in the 1950’s.
Fuck him and corporate America.
MY RESPONSE: Agreed.

Samir:What time is it there in Tehran? We don’t need your kind commenting on our elections. Go back to fucking your sheep and we’ll handle electing a leader for our country, okay?
MY RESPONSE: American Man – Do you have nothing better to do at 4:24 in the morning than be a a scary rascist on a random sketch comedians website? Can’t you be a scary rascist somewhere else?
John Lott said on 12 Jan 2008 at 4:49 am:
Senator Thompson didn’t make a statement about smoking being allowed. He just said that it wasn’t the role of the federal government to pass such laws. He would say pass the bans at the state level if that is what you want to do.
MY RESPONSE: “Pass the bans” sounds funny taken out of context. Sorta sounds like, “Pass the buns.” Heh heh.
