Fred Thompson - Another in a Series of Jilted Lovers
They begged him to run. "We need a real candidate," the Republican voters said. "Run Fred, run," they urged.
But once he did, they looked him over once or twice and said, "Nah. I wasn't really all that interested in him. Who else do we have again?"
I was never a big fan of Fred's. This is not about defending the man as a candidate. But he must feel humiliated - like a suitor tricked into a series of tedious tea dates with the aged aunt before hearing that his love interest never was really serious. We all complain about the candidates, but I honestly think that the voters of this country are worse.
Poor Fred - seduced only to be rejected.
