Fred Thompson’s campaign has gone the way of Goliath:
Republican Fred Thompson, the actor-politician who attracted more attention as a potential presidential candidate than as a real one, quit the race for the White House on Tuesday after a string of poor finishes in early primary and caucus states.
“Today, I have withdrawn my candidacy for president of the United States. I hope that my country and my party have benefited from our having made this effort,” the former Tennessee senator said in a brief statement.
Thompson’s fate was sealed last Saturday in the South Carolina primary, when he finished third in a state that he had said he needed to win.
One less contender for the GOP. One less RINO in the way of the Huckabee/Brownback Presidency.
And as an added benefit, I never have to hear another word about that shameless harlot, Jeri Thompson. Her sluttish strumpetry threatened to derail our nation itself. God has mercifully placed her out of the public concern henceforth.
