Thompson’s wordsmiths are throwing out C’s-conservative, consistent, and complete. Just as I was thinking this is the sort of thing that gets mocked, in chimes (another “c”) a rival strategist with: “Customarily cackling on a couch.” We have a whole alphabet of alliterations but there is a point, sort of. The other candidates had a few months to define themselves when all their opponents were doing the same and not immediately going negative. Thompson won’t enjoy that breathing space and will have to play offense and defense simultaneously. His adjectives seem aimed exclusively at Rudy and Romney but two others will be after him– the humorous Huckabee and the maverick McCain. Yeah, enough already with the letters.
