Behind every great man is a woman. Or in Hillary’s case behind every far-left wackjob socialist woman is a disgusting womanizer. Perhaps the womanizer part is true even in Jeri Thompson’s case. John Lennon had his Yoko Ono, Samson had his Delilah, and Fred! has his Jeri. And if history is any judge, it can only end in tears.
Some sources describe the role of the presumed candidate’s wife, Jeri, as vast and powerful. Sources say “she’s integrally involved in every decision” and that Fred Thompson has “set it up so everything goes through her.” Critically, that was cast as “running it like a congressional campaign” and from the “kitchen table.”
At present, those close to the planning say Jeri is involved in hiring, salaries, schedule, office assignments at the two headquarters, and small details like the color of bumper stickers. Some sources defend her, adding that “it’s easy to say she’s controlling things.” Sources describe that she, like many in Washington, knows many people in politics. They acknowledge Jeri meets with and interviews senior staff candidates and is clearly a key adviser.
But are cute little Jeri’s efforts paying off? Hmmm.
Sources close to the presumptive campaign tell NBC News that Fred Thompson’s fundraising is down “markedly.” One claimed it has “slowed down big-time.”
Oh, but I’m sure she’s helping with her hands-on approach. Right?
[Yet] Another Staff Departure
Oh well. Race 4 2008 has more.
So if Thompson gets the lazy nod, will it be Fred! vs. Hillary or Jeri vs. Hillary? I’m so confused. But I bet Fred! and Billy Jeff go hang out at Hooters while the girls, Jeri and Hilly, have a raging catfight over who belongs in the White House.
Frankly, they should all be barred at the door. Better yet, keep them outside the gate.
