But all news of the week — from Monica Goodling to the immigration bill to the Democrats’ capitulation — is up for discussion.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

    FYI –
    Fred Thompson is still not running for president – officially. He has formed an exploratory committee and has begun to raise funds, but he has not exactly announced his candidacy.
    I’ve heard folks make snide remarks about Mr. Thompson because of his acting career. I’ve heard him compared to Ronald Reagan (as though it is bad to be like Ronald Reagan). Let me make one thing perfectly clear – Mr. Thompson is not just an actor.
    Before he ever had even one acting role, Mr. Thompson was an assistant United States attorney (1969-1972). He was a successful campaign manager for Howard Baker (1972). He was the co-chief counsel to the Senate Watergate Committee (1973-1974). He rooted out corruption in the Tennessee governor’s office (1977). He worked as a lobbyist in Washington (1977-1992), and it was during this time that he started acting. He later represented Tennessee in the Senate from 1994 to 2003, serving as the chairman of the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee from 1997 to 2001.
    His acting career began when he played himself in the documentary Marie in 1985. He went on to play parts in many movies and in the TV show Law and Order.
    So please don’t say that Mr. Thompson is just an actor. He is so much more.

    And no, this does not mean that I’m promoting or supporting Thompson – just giving you the rest of the facts.

    Yes, it is interesting isn’t it. America loves it’s actors. The MTV generation at it’s best. Let’s hire an actor to act like a president, someone that believes what his writers say he believes; someone who tell us what we want to hear and acts in a way that we want to see a president act like. That’s… so…. American! God forbid we should actually elect someone who steadfastly believes what they say, someone who has principles and leadership skills, and someone who understands what sacrifices have to be made for the sake of security and freedom. Well guess what America? You get the leader you deserve, and if the majority of the country wants God removed from everything, why not elect an atheist? But not just any atheist, a PROUD atheist. Then let’s see what happens.

    It has perplexed me when I hear the radical right always speaking of the Hollywood types and how bad they are and then I look at their glory boys and wonder whats up with this?
    For instance:
    Ronald Reagan a B movie actor
    Arnold Schwarzenegger a action movie actor
    Fred Thompson a telivision actor
    None of the above particularly renown for their reasoning ability or their ability to lead a country that needs principled leaders.
    Reagan a divorced man (family values not even a great actor)
    Arnold (porn star and building his body over mind)
    Fred (what a law series where he played a role)
    What has happened to our nation that the republicans chose these men over some that have worked as leaders in their community or state???
    I don’t get it! or is it because they make great puppets for the powers that be!!!
