Apparently, Fred Thompson believes that the current batch of GOP Presidential wannabees have not sufficiently pandered to the right wing. In an AP article, assumes the position for the Dobson crowd, by saying that Roe v. Wade should be overturned as "bad law and bad medical science." (I assume he knows this because he played a doctor at some point).
Clearly, his role as a Naval officer (Hunt for Red October) helped him conclude that
"Wars are full of mistakes. You rectify things. I think we're doing that now," he said. "Why would we not take any chance, even though there's certainly no guarantees, to not be run out of that place? I mean, we've got to take that opportunity and give it a chance to work."
But my favorite was his belief that Scooter Libby should be pardoned now. After those years on "Law and Order" you'd think he would be tougher on criminals, right?
