Fred Thompson II

There are so many problems with this guy, Cliff couldn't cover them all, so I'll toss in my 2 cents.

He's been a lobbyist for aircraft engine manufacturers to nuclear power plant builders, hooked up with the Libby apologists even though he doesn't know Scooter, drove around in a prop "Gee Shucks" red pickup for campaigning and some of the nicer tags at Eventful are puppet, paid shill and Washington insider.

Not to mention stuff the R's won't like about him- he's an ex prosecutor who opposes tort reform (gasp), is a supporter of McCain-Feingold, does not oppose guest worker status for certain immigrants and James Dobson doesn't think Thompson is a Christian.

Military experience? "Hollywood Fred" received a deferment because he had children.

The issues with sluttiness & "traditional marriage"? Let Glenn Greenwald lay it all out for you.

Don't even get me started on his connections to Dave Bossie (fired by Bush 41 for being too slimy) and Citizens United.

Check out this commercial he did for them in March of 2003 (before the war).

Could they have possibly written a more fear-mongering, posturing piece of offal than that? "GO TO WAR OR DIE". Couched in that "Gee shucks, I wouldn't lie to you, I'm a TeeVee Lawyer!" voice.

Heckuva candidate there.

He is slimy as hell.

Actually, he sounds like the ideal repuke candidate.

But his wife has perky, very nice and extremely shapely tits.

Fred is supported by the Firm, Non-Flabby Trophy Wives of America. They firmly support him, and believe that old, wrinkly wives should go away and stop the fucking whining for gawd's sake.

And he's aligned with the American Enterprise Institute, let's not forget that.

Dude's a neocon.

But is he FIRMLY aligned? "Firm" is the key with Big Dick Fred, lover of the Firm Boobies.
