Fred Thompson - "The Pirates of Tehran"
Fred continues on his Shermanesque march towards the Presidency (apologies to my numerous Georgian friends). In just a couple of months and without even having announced his candidacy, Thompson has become the conservative of choice in the blogosphere. He is craftily using the internet and radio to launch a campaign without the need to announce.
McCain is all but done. He has deliberately ignored the conservative base. Romney's has a tremendous war chest but money doesn't buy gravitas, nor can it erase his tortured positions and inconsistent voting record. Rudy is popular but sinking. And he has more baggage than Thurston and Lovey brought on the Minnow. Run Fred, run.
