Fred Thompson makes his debate debut tonight

What are the odds that old Fred Thompson will make it through the Republican debate tonight without looking like an uninformed fool?

This will be his first presidential debate and this one will focus primarily on the economy. I doubt that is one of Fred’s best subjects. Come to think of it, does he have a best subject?

While I do not ordinarily watch GOP debates this one might be worth it just for the entertainment value. Maybe with a script and some rehearsal Fred might not make a complete fool of himself but I wouldn't give odds.

His best issue? "Let me tell you about my grandchildren."

Look for the Suspicious Square Bulge on his back (like the one Bush wore in the '04 debates); his answers will be spoonfed to him.

The things grouchy old men will do to impress the child bride who craves power.

Maybe she needs to hook up with Rudy.

It's about time for him to find another mate.

Man, wouldn't it be awesome if Grandpa Fred and Roody Jewels got into a big old scrap and started wrasslin' right there on the stage!?

FT: I'm tough on terrorism!
RG: No, I'M tough on terrorism. Did you see me on 9/11?
FT: No, I was in makeup. But I'm still tougher--tougher than a tick on a hound dawg.
RG: Listen, you hillbilly...
FT: That's it! Leg wrassle!
RG: Where's my gun?

Wow...great minds. I just put up my daily post and it's all about Fred and the debate. I hope I don't miss it tonight, I love watching the Republicans be...Republicans.

Republicans don't listen, therefore they assume nobody else listens, therefore they think they don't have to care what comes out of their flappin' uptight little silverspoon-fed yaps.

If this debate pre-empts reruns of "Law & Order," I am going to be SO pissed.

Thompson's best subject? Looking dumb as a post and still making it into the debate. Maybe he'll have a "why am I here?" moment.

Up here in Canada we're having a lot of trouble telling the difference between American TV shows and American politics. Like, do you have to be a good actor or a bad actor to get elected? And, do the actors know when they're supposed to be doing a real job and when they're just pretending?

I think his best subject is "don't I look good in this suit ?" and lets not forget " did you watch me on TV?" I think James said it best.... James said...

Can't wait to watch the idiot bumble and stutter. I heard he's horrible at this sort of thing, not to mention the fact they have to tell him what to say in an earpiece.

If he gets into trouble he can always fall back on his Hunt for Red October dialogue..."Russians don't take a dump without a plan son." I swear I hear it every time he shows up in the press.

Expectations at this point are such that if the man fails to fall asleep and drool at the podium, it will be considered a successful debate for Thompson. And the target audience will stand dumbfounded at his eloquence.

Could the bar get any lower? (Please, don't answer that - it was rhetorical.) We are sooooo screwed...

I had no idea he has been around since Nixon was in office until I saw it today. Nixon was no prize himself of course but he called Thompson the stupidest politician he's ever seen and I have to agree with him. He just seems like a joke and I see him getting nowhere.

I am not quite sure if I would bother watching these guys even if I could. What I am sure about, though, is that my fragile mental state, brought by your present administration, wouldn't allow me to pay attention for the full length of the "debate" without going bananas.

Big Fred made, just recently, a remark about the dangers of the Soviet Union. The collapse of the "Evil Empire" might have gone by Fred due to a tight filming schedule of his, but then again, the recent American foreign policies wouldn't miss a beat with him, would they now?

Pekka, the "Soviet Union" is emerging once again as a threat in Putin's Russia. They are taking advantage of the state of world affairs and reasserting themselves as a power in Europe. Take the new flights of bombers toward Britain that have required NATO aircraft to intercept them.

Russia is a country that still cannot account for all of its cold war nuclear weapons. It is currently being run by the vestages of the KGB. There are too many who wish to see communism again.

There is a threat there worth mentioning.

Everytime he finished speaking, in my mind I kept hearing the Law & Order ker-chunk sound.

Hello Robert, and thank you for your reply! What struck me with Big Fred's "Soviet announcement" was it's careless inaccuracy in historical and even in political terms. That's not so good for the man who wants to be in charge. Not quite knowing, using ill-informed sources and conveying it all in confusing language has become a norm lately but one still hopes that the new president of your great nation will change all that. Thompson doesn't seem to be the one to do it.

Nevertheless, you did make some good points about Russia while making one great error. What ever form of governance will be in Russia, it will not be communism.

Old Fred couldn't get through his lines without looking down at his script. Nothing he said came from his brain, but it came from the notes that were given to him by Cheney's daughter.

I haven't seen anything here that rivals the "Obama Osama" or "Hitlery Clinton" crap I see everywhere else. At least people here are talking about issues and real personality traits. I agree that it would be great if issues were all anyone discussed, but for conservatives to compare this discussion to Rush's type of rhetoric is disingenuous indeed. When Democrats take it silently, they're called spineless. When they show some spine, they're called hypocrites. Have conservatives anything to offer besides ad hominem criticisms anymore? It would be nice if they did, because some TRUE conservative (not that NEOCON crap that has no likeness) ideas are worth pursuing.

Pekka, Thanks for the reply. I didn't say it would be communism, I stated that there were those exerting influence to return to communism.

I think many in Russia are becoming wealthy and have tasted capitalism. Communism may not return, but it isn't democracy either.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.wilantion.ru]Viagra 100mg pills[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
