Even Republicans Think Fred Thompson Sucks


And they're not even talking about his trophy wife's... um, ample assets.

From How to fix the Republican funk:

Republicans have purged the alternative vision that made their party fresh and exciting.

Back to Fred Thompson's speech in Orange Country as case in point.

The former senator from Tennessee devoted a good portion of his remarks to boilerplate phrases and buzzwords that appeal to a conservative crowd ("Wouldn't it be great if, instead of worrying so much about how to divide the pie, we could work together on how to make the pie bigger?")

But Thompson did take a brave step into substance and this was most revealing and concerning. "...there is nothing more urgent than the fate that is awaiting our Social Security and Medicare programs." What's his answer? "If grandmom and granddad think that a little sacrifice will help their grandchildren when they get married, try to buy a home or have children, they will respond to a credible call to make that sacrifice..."

Thompson is supposed to be the guy to fill the Reagan void. Can anyone imagine Reagan saying anything like this?

OK, Grandma! Hand over a portion of your $800-$900 Social Security check for the good of the nation!

Just because Fred Thompson thinks you should.

What an assbite. And I'm not talking about his wife, either.
