The Gentleman from Tennessee

I have this thing for Fred Thompson. I don’t know what kind of “thing” it is, but it just is (and according to Bill it depends on what the definition of is is).
Anyway, I often call Senator Fred Thompson, Joe Don Baker. I think they look a lot alike.They are both actors after all.
Joe Don Fred cracks me up! I watched him half-heartedly run for President this past year. He was so funny. The politicos insist as a person running for office, you have to collect millions of dollars in campaign funding, you have to speak at certain rallies and conventions. You have to do this or do that and then there was Joe Don Fred. He basically said, “Fuck you all, I’ll do what I want when I want”.
He had me at “Fuck you”.
I think he is quite a character and he was the reason I watched the RNC last night. I wanted to see him and hear him speak his mind. He did not disappoint.
Thanks Joe Don Fred! I appreciate the fact that there are still those tough old birds out there who do what they want, when they want and don’t give a hoot about anyone else’s partisan/bipartisan opinion.
I’m just sayin’.
P.S. Did anyone else hear the ABC news commentator during the DNC use a freudian slip when referring to the Obama/Biden ticket? He said Obama Bin Laden ticket. I nearly pee’d my pants!
