Another local fan of Fred Thompson

Mark at Meneltarma has now proclaimed that Fred Thompson’s the man!

I’m a fan of Fred Thompson. It all started with his little splurge of fame when he burst on the scene last year. Like everyone else, I almost forgot about him when he took forever to get into the race officially. But now, I’ve started to appreciate that very attitude which probably held him back. He’s real.

  1. It doesn’t matter who the republican nationalists pick for their ticket.
