Lovin’ Freddy Thompson

How fun is the Republican primary? These guys are great! Fred Thompson, in particular, took the whole process to a new level.

    A lot of TV and movie actors aren’t much when it comes to improv. Without a script, they’re lost. Thompson, despite his impressive resume, has zero training as an actor. He learns his few lines and he’s done. Put in a situation where he has to answer spontaneously, he’s totally at sea. In a storm. In a rowboat.

    Also, he’s awful dumb.

    Dumb, but friendly.

  3. Damn, you would have to put up a youtube vid AFTER I got to work that firewalls and blocks all such things!

    What is the point of posting this nasty cut-up? That digital editing is required to make him look stupid? Is there anything, at all, useful about it?

    You’re making yourself and progressive politics more generally look petty.

    Well, Eric, even if you’re right we’ve got some pettiness to give. I mean, look at the Republican field. Or the RWNM’s ludicrous and nasty attacks on a 12-yr-old. As far as “petty” goes, we’re gonna be outclassed by the Right for a long time to come.

    Calm down & get a sense of humor. I’m not making any substantive arguments based on the video, just having some fun. Though I think there is plenty of real evidence out there that ol’ Freddy’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    This is a blog, not a mainstream media outlet. I would be against the MSM posting this video as if it meant something rather than, say, telling the American people about Nixon’s comments about “dumb but friendly” Thompson. The MSM seems to reserve its superficial coverage for Democrats (Howard Dean’s scream, Gore’s sighs, Hillary’s hair, cleavage, laugh, etc.)

    Please refer me to all your posts taking down the media’s silly coverage of goofy lil things like this that are best left to a lil blog fun.
