The Attack Ad that Writes Itself

I'd like to congratulate the opposition research team that dug this little skeleton out of Fred Thompson's closet and then leaked it to the New York Times:

"A little over three years after Pan Am Flight 103 blew up over Lockerbie, Scotland," former Sen. Fred Thompson "provided advice to a colleague about one of his law firm’s new clients: The man representing the two Libyan intelligence officials charged in the terrorist bombing," reports the New York Times.

"The colleague, John Culver, a partner at the Washington firm of Arent Fox Kintner Plotkin & Kahn began advising the two suspects’ Libyan lawyer in February 1992. Mr. Thompson, according to a memorandum from that era written by his secretary, held ‘discussions with Culver re: Libya’ that same month."

Bravo, fellas!
