Fred Thompson Hates America
Sorry Righties, your knight in shining armor has let you down. You've been had. The Right Wing has been so infatuated with Fred Thompson, he's become a walking talking Rorschach test. Millions of swooning wingnuts have just assumed that he shares their belief that human life is sacred from the point of conception to the moment of birth.
Thompson has always been personally opposed to abortion, but he believes this is a moral issue and not a legal matter. He stated this clearly several times in the mid-1990s. OUCH! And that’s not all. Thompson not only voted in favor of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform bill — he helped to write it. Take that, Wingers — your hero wants a bunch of big bloated government bureaucrats meddling in the free marketplace of ideas, REGULATING political speech.
Now, of course, Thompson is trying to backpedal and “restate” and “clarify” everything. He’ll use his Hollywood persona and Southern demeanor to smooth those ruffled feathers. But the truth is out. That swashbuckling hero was just an illusion. Rightwads — back to the drawing board.
