Sen. Fred Thompson must like this blogging thing.
Today, he disclosed that he suffers from what could be termed, we suppose, a “mild” form of lymphoma. You can read all the facts on Red State.
While we’re sure that it wasn’t an easy thing to divulge, we also think that it shows what kind of a guy Thompson is: a straight shooter, who didn’t wait until after he announced to tell people about this. It’s refreshing.
And more important to conservatives: it shows that he’s clearing the decks and doing the things necessary to enter the race.
