Breaking: Fred Thompson Out!

fred_thompson_s_ms-2.jpg
We absolutely hate to be the bearers of bad news, but that Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson has dropped out of the 2008 election.

Tragic, yes, but look on the bright side: we can look forward to his inglorious Law & Order resurrection!

Rumor has it Thompson will endorse John McCain.

On a related note – why do some candidates insist on staying in the race despite the fact that they have no chance of winning? Have some dignity!

      I wish John “Dependz” McCain would drop out.

      Why do pictures of Fred Thompson give me the heebie-jeebies? He looks scarier with each passing day…

      He shoulda took a hint from Nixon..

      “He isn’t very smart, is he?” Nixon asks.

      “Not extremely so, but –,” Buzhardt says, interrupted by the president.

      “But he’s friendly,” Nixon says.

      Why did it take so long for Dipshit McGoo to realize he didn’t have a prayer?

      Ah, well, so much for the Great Hope of last summer.

      As for “why do some candidates insist on staying in the race despite the fact that they have no chance of winning?” I suppose THEY would say they play a valuable role in contributing to the debate, which is really just a sweet and tender way of saying they have egos as big as all outdoors and only by running around attracting dwindling numbers of die-hard cultlike adherants can they properly bask in the very special smug self-righteousness only avaialable to the politically hopeless.

      Qweerty, you know of course that that question opens the door for hordes of angry Paulists and Dennisites to flood the forum with bitter denunciations of The Process, The Media, The Voters, The Ignorant LGBTs, and pretty much Anyone’s disasterous failings other than those of, well, their candidate.
