Vile Snark on Fred Thompson from Dana Milbank

I don't know if this is supposed to be an opinion piece or a legit job of reporting. But apparently Dana "Skull and Bones" Milbank has it in for Fred Thompson. How about this characterization of FDT's meeting with Congressional Republicans:

Actually, Thompson looked old and sallow as he faced the cameras for a few seconds before hopping into a waiting GMC Envoy. But his hour-long meeting was well staged. Five television cameras rolled and a mob of 50 journalists and tourists watched his arrival and departure, crushing tulips and pansies outside the Capitol Hill Club.

Dang flower hating Republicans. He shows just as much love for the rest of the Republican field:

It's been a difficult few weeks for the GOP field. Mitt Romney misfired by describing himself as a "lifelong hunter" when, in fact, he never had a license and only occasionally took shots at "varmints." John McCain has self-destructed over his championing of the Iraq war. Rudy Giuliani has had more Bernard Kerik problems. And Tommy Thompson, a new entrant, quickly disqualified himself by telling a Jewish group this week that making money is "part of the Jewish tradition."

Among potential top-tier candidates, that leaves Newt Gingrich (who has more baggage than a bellhop) and Fred Thompson.
