The Stairway to Success
What the heck is Fred Thompson doing in the presidential sweepstakes? The other day, in his latest gaffe, he characterized the Iraq debacle as "fighting against a bunch of kids with pipe bombs," as if it's just Columbine on a larger scale. He's even further removed from reality than the current doofus. But the surreality of today's political climate is sufficient to have his candidacy concern me, unlike back when Ronald Reagan announced his hope of becoming president. My future as a political pundit and prognosticator was thrown into serious doubt when I refused to worry. "It'll never happen," was as much thought as I initially gave it.
