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.
