I was at a friend’s house last weekend, and the 2008 elections came up. My buddy claimed he was a strict libertarian, but he didn’t like to throw his vote away by voting for the Libertarian ticket, which I think is a reasonable stance. I assumed that meant that he was supporting Ron Paul.
His response–“Who’s that?”
So I asked who he did support. His response–“Fred Thompson”.
I haven ‘t been able to find out much about where Thompson stands on, well, anything, so I asked why he’s supporting Fred Thompson.
“Well, he’s from Tennessee.”
End of conversation.
Republicans rushing to embrace Fred Thompson’s would-be presidential candidacy might have trouble figuring out what he would do if he actually won the White House.
