Jennifer, I said not one good word about Thompson in my last post. I merely blasted the MSM for its indefensible incompetence and its indefensible news judgment. How is it “shilling” for any one candidate for me to say that the MSM is pathetic, and to say that all the realistic GOP candidates except one would make pretty decent presidents? I do find your obsession with nitpicking the undeclared campaign of Thompson rather bizarre, though. Why not spend time picking not the tiny nits, but the big ugly bugs, from the ALREADY DECLARED campaign of Mike Huckabee, who actually is participating in the straw poll in Iowa this weekend? And I’m not talking about horse-race BS, such as who has what jobs in a potential campaign, but actual substance? Like taxes, and spending, and ethics –on all of which subjects Huckabee, for one, merits serious criticism.
