Thanks, George Will

For pointing out what a huge douchehound Fred Thompson is! With nemeses like you, who needs to blog?

Btw, is it just me, or does anyone else read stuff like this

Sean Hannity, who is no Torquemada conducting inquisitions of conservatives, asked Thompson: "When you look at the other current crop of candidates—Republicans—where is the distinction between your positions and what you view as theirs?" Thompson replied: "Well, to tell you the truth, I haven't spent a whole lot of time going into the details of their positions."
…and think that the main reason Fred Thompson is running for president is because, shrug, he doesn't have anything better to do?

I hope America has finally noticed at long last that guys who have nothing better to do than be president make shitty presidents. To wit: If 2000 had turned out differently, Dubya would have spent the past almost-seven years fucking around on the boards of various corporations. Gore spent them becoming the world's most prominent environmental advocate, writing a few bestselling books, starring in the most successful documentary of all time, winning an Oscar, getting nominated for the Nobel Prize, and being right on every significant domestic and foreign policy issue that's been up for debate.

So maybe we shouldn't be quite so enamored with dudez who don't seem to give a shit. Just saying.
