Right said Fred-heads

Filed under: Fred Thompson — relee @ 5:20 pm

This is the kind of article that makes me sad…and at the same time makes me realize that what we’re doing here is important:

Fred Thompson is flooding a network of conservative web sites with op-eds in an attempt to soothe the right about his past support for campaign finance reform and his opposition to malpractice lawsuit limits.

As he prepares to launch a bid for the GOP presidential nomination, Thompson has penned articles on a broad swath of conservative touchstones, everything from illegal immigration to global warming to gun control.

I wonder if he’s penned any articles about pimping himself out to pro-abortion extremists.

Which isn’t to say there isn’t a lot of sense in some of these Freditorials:

On concerns about global warming: “It seems scientists have noticed recently that quite a few planets in our solar system seem to be heating up a bit, including Pluto. This has led some people, not necessarily scientists, to wonder if Mars and Jupiter, non-signatories to the Kyoto Treaty, are actually inhabited by alien SUV-driving industrialists who run their air-conditioning at 60 degrees and refuse to recycle.”

I keep a pretty close tab on the temperatures of other planets in our solar system as well, and Fred is right on the money here. And I’m glad that Thompson isn’t one of those astronomical relativists who wants to say Pluto isn’t really a planet.

But let’s be honest here: Fred is trying to replace real grassroots enthusiasm — the kind you see here everyday — with mass-produced (and most likely focus-grouped) boilerplate. That’s not gonna cut it.

Not with this voter.


  1. WHOA!!! – CAREFUL THERE!!! You used the term “solar system” (quote:”I keep a pretty close tab on the temperatures of other planets in our solar system as well”) , which flies in the face of the whole “Heliocentrism is an Athiest Doctrine” tennant of this blogsite’s belief system.

    Careful that God (or at least Sisyphus, Psychout & the gang) doesn’t stike you dead for such heresy!

  2. I have some questions for Sisyphus. Sis, you say that the world is flat. Have you ever been to the edge?

    Also, I wanted to know that since you believe in other planets (surprising actually), do you think they are flat too? Is the moon flat? And what about the sun?

  3. Great post as usual, Randall.

    Indyandy (that’s what we named the B4B dog), you’re a fool. The fact that other planets exist does not contradict the truth that Heliocentrism is indeed an Atheist Doctrine.

    Nice try, poo for brains.

  4. hmm…

    but this post did mention “solar” system instead of calling it the correct term: “Terra” system.

    I’m sure it was a typo.

  6. You named a dog after me? – I’m flattered!

    SOLAR system implies that SOL (aka: the Sun) is at the CENTER of the system, & the planets rotate around IT – thus; heliocentrism.

  9. If the best Fred’s rivals can come up with his calling his wife a poptart then in the seat at the desk in the office that is oval he will sit.

    Go Fred – Beat Hillary
