How anyone can think Fred Thompson is anything but a buffoon is beyond me, but at least he was your best entertainment value last night. The text of his speech looks like someone was writing a haiku and thought it should take ten minutes to read. By the way, the reason I was looking is I wanted the exact quote where he implies Barack Obama doesn't care about infanticide: "And we need a President who doesn't think that the protection of the unborn or a newly born baby is above his pay grade."

John McCain cannot raise his arms above his shoulders.
And we salute him.
What is it with old bald Republicans and their trophy wives?
