Oh, and he got off a couple of droll one-liners:
Asked about the United States response in a confrontation with Iranian speedboats, Mr. Thompson said, "I think one more step and they would have been introduced to those virgins that they’re looking forward to seeing."Ba dum bum.
Update: Mike Huckabee comes back with some helpful advice for Fred Thompson.
I guess that's the Baptist way of saying, "You're full of shit, Fred."
H/T to TPM.
