The first debate with Fred Thompson was expected to reveal whether the lanky actor had what it takes to make a national run for the office. Instead, it revealed Chris Matthews as a hack of the first order, one who tried his best to torpedo Thompson — and failed utterly. He got so desparate that he demanded to know whether Thompson knew who the Canadian Prime Minister was — and he did. Matthews grew so frustrated that he openly critiqued one of Thompson’s answer for being too detailed, which prompted a scolding from Thompson.
That was the game behind the debate, and Thompson stomped Matthews into a laughingstock.
Fred also had the very desireable center spot, where he dominated the stage.
Here’s the transcript of the debate.
Lefties are all afflutter that a former Jerry Falwell associate was kinky. If you go to Memeorandum and read the links (some of those links are NOT SUITABLE FOR WORK) you’ll see that Lefties consider anyone else’s sexual proclivities
a. Appropriate for public derision and condemnation
b. a case study of the hypocrisy of the right
c. evidence that all Republicans are pervs… because they don’t exclusively pratice the kind of sex the Left believes appropriate for Republicans – even when we don’t know if the dead guy was a Democrat, Republican or independent. Or whether he was even a registered voter.
So much for the Left’s inclusivity, open-mindedness and non-judgemental attitude towards a hapless dead man.
And now for the soap:
“Like infidels through an hourglass, so are the sands of passion.”
