Now this is just too cute.  It’s like poor little Freddie Thompson has rubbed his two brain cells together so fast it started a little fire.

The fire in question resulted in something of a gaffe.  I suppose you can call it a gaffe.  I think total brain fart would maybe be a little more descriptive, but gaffe works I guess.

“The president called me up and asked me to help shepherd judge John Roberts’ nomination through the Senate confirmation process. I was honored that I got that call. I was honored that he thought I had enough friends on the Democratic side that they wouldn’t run me out of town!

“We fought hard against each other, but I always thought that we had mutual respect. And that’s what it takes.
“Even though the other party controlled the Judiciary committee, we got some votes there. For a good, sound, what I would call conservative justice.”

You ready for the punchline?  If it hasn’t hit you yet, let me help you.  The other party DIDN’T control the Judiciary; the Republicans did, just like everything else because back when Roberts was nominated Republicans STILL HELD THE MAJORITY.

Now, okay, not knowing lethal injection was ruled unconstitutional in his home state of Tennesse, I’ll give him a pass on.  Fred does have a house in Arlington after all.  Terry Schiavo, I’ll let go because maybe Fred’s been living under a rock for, like, ever.

But this?  Dude, you were THERE!  You were Roberts’ SHEPHARD!  Here’s a hint, the R behind the committee chairman’s name might have been something of a clue.

Ah well.  At least I don’t have to worry about this guy being our president.  Americans would never elect a slow whitted, mumble mouthed, gaffe machine…
