Fred’s Out

Fred Thompson leaves the Presidential campaign trail as of today. SeeDubya thinks there was too much confusion at the top of his organization and offers up some anecdotal proof. Here is Fred’s statement:

“Today, I have withdrawn my candidacy for president of the United States.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[.]”

Rick Moran at Right Wing Nuthouse is in mourning over the announcement but takes a moment to castigate the Left for their dismissive attitude directed at “Grandpa Fred”:

I am amused by the laughter on the left over “Grandpa Fred” and his laid back demeanor. Perhaps if they examined their own fascination with the celebrity candidates on the Democratic side – an empty suit of a man running a campaign of cotton candy platitudes and half thought out policies along with a ruthless shrew whose grasp for power and influence is only slightly less nauseating than that of her philandering husband -they wouldn’t be quite so dismissive. Given that their likely candidate has a personality that makes Leona Helmsley look like a civic saint, one would think a little less gloating on their part might be in order.

All might not be bleak on the Thompson front as SeeDubya offers up some hope for a bit o’ Fred influence in the campaign to come:

Preferably as Mitt Romney’s running mate.

That could work!

However, Fred’s campaign isn’t holding out any hopes . . .
