No, not gritty quarterback Billy Kilmer. Mark Kilmer, over at Red State, makes an excellent point that Fred Thompson’s chances are pretty decent, and explains why. In the process, he does me the honor of quoting an earlier column of mine. Not only that, but he interpreted my column exactly as I intended, which was not an endorsement of Jeb Bush but an explanation of why somebody who is solidly conservative could enter the race relatively late. Kilmer says, and I agree, that Thompson fits the scenario I described quite well.
