:: The Daily Fred, Thursday Edition

Your Fred Thompson gaffe du jour - because with each passing day, it just gets better and better

Okay, this guy is making it just too easy - so easy, in fact, that I can post The Daily Fred and stay true to my lazy nature. He appears to be constitutionally unable to prepare himself for questions. Is there any subject in which he has expertise? Is there any conflict during which he pays attention? He's actually giving Bush a run for his money in the hoof-in-mouth department.

Today's entry is: "Thompson Gives No Opinion on Schiavo" courtesy of the AP. Emphasis added. And this is in Florida, no less.
THE VILLAGES, Fla. - Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson gave no opinion Thursday when asked about efforts by President Bush and Congress to keep Terri Schiavo alive, saying he does not remember details of the right-to-die case that stirred national debate.

Thompson was asked in an interview for Bay News 9's "Political Connections" program whether he thought Congress' intervention to save the life of the brain-damaged woman two years ago was appropriate.

"I can't pass judgment on it. I know that good people were doing what they thought was best," Thompson said. "That's going back in history. I don't remember the details of it."
Tee hee hee! Hee hee! I love it.

Is it terrible of me to say that I thought Fred was a much more attractive candidate before his cancer treatment? That is to say, he was a more attractive candidate when he was a more attractive candidate?
