Remember the good old days when Fred Thompson was wandering around the country trying to figure out why he wanted to be president? Remember when we spent hours debating the relative hotness of Jeri Thompson v. Liz Kucinich? Remember the little red pickup truck? Those were good times.
This is why I am saddened to tell you that you won’t have Fred Thompson to kick around anymore:
Former Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) said he would not accept an offer from Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) to be his running mate.
During an interview on “Hannity and Colmes” that aired Thursday, the 2008 presidential primary candidate said he is not interested in being on the GOP ticket.
Can you imagine the fun we’d have had watching these two Confused Old Men endlessly crossing the fruited plains and doddering from sea to shining sea trying to explain why we should let them reauthorize Operation Endless War™? Would’ve been good times.
