Viva La Fred!

Glenn Reynolds over at Instapundit has been keeping his finger on the conservative Republican pulse especially when it comes to John McCain. Glenn has also noticed a lot of folks pining for the good, old days when Fred Thompson was still a candidate:

REGARDING MY EARLIER POST, reader Don MacRae emails:

Long time daily reader, first time writer. I have noticed the Fred Thompson comments as well; file under "You Don't Know What You Got 'Til It's Gone". For the record, not only did I donate to his campaign, I went door to door to get signatures so he could be on the ballot here in Ohio and my wife was a state delegate to boot. I have been wondering who to support since Fred dropped out of the race and I am now fairly certain that I am going to vote for Fred anyway. Screw John McCain!

Fred may do surprisingly well, for a guy who's not running . . . .

I have to say I like the way this MacRae guy thinks!

Perhaps we can get Fred to change his mind.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I read the post you linked to (love the James Brown metaphor) but I think Fred is out for good unless he comes back as Mitt's VP which I understand he has no interest in becoming. Fred's a good man and I'm sorry he wasn't able to muster enough votes to stay in the race. But what really bothers me is what we're left with - I don't need Rush Limbaugh to chain whip John McCain for me - I already know he's trouble. And now the media's got their "mavrick" as the front runner meme - spare me.

Stay tuned - more bleak posts to come!
