Fred Thompson... The Incredible Snow Job Waiting To Happen.

Fred Thompson reeks of integrity ... of "gravitas".

"The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that you've got it made." - Jean Giraudoux

Taken from sTiVo's comment on

"... When hacks like Chris Matthews prattle on about authenticity, what they mean is the kind of authenticity Giraudoux was talking about. Someone able to fool enough of the people enough of the time to get over. The LAST thing they want is an authentic populist. Thompson fills the bill."

Fred not only has fake sincerity, he has that kind of dignified air that might actually be stupidity. Unfortunately it is mistaken for what is called "gravitas".

Why not something REAL -- why not RON PAUL?

I'm ashamed to admit it, but my Southern brethren are "slow" in more ways than one.

It took decades for them to realize that the Democratic Party had long left (no pun intended) them, convert to "Reagan Democrats," then Republicans.

Now, they're equally slow to realize that the GOP has slipped back to its roots: Big Gov/Big Biz, porous borders and corporate globalism.

In neither party are the interests of true Southerners and all freedom-loving Americans realized.

Once we finally get around to catching on, rural Southerners will stop sending up one-worlders like Clinton and now Thompson.

Ron Paul, the Pennsylvania transplant from Texas, is the only principled statesman running for President. Thanks for keeping his name out there.
