Today in Fred Thompson Sucks

The Thompson campaign held exactly one event today.

One. A meet and greet at a veterans' retirement home. It lasted 34 minutes. Meanwhile:

One of his main rivals, former Gov. Mitt Romney, R-Mass., held seven events, while his wife appeared at another four. The other Iowa frontrunner, former Gov. Mike Huckabee, R-Ark., had four events on Tuesday, capped by a rally featuring actor Chuck Norris.

I don't think it's a stretch to say that Chuck Norris might be the hardest campaigning actor in this race. Thompson just simply doesn't give a shit about Iowa or its voters:

On Tuesday, even a four-minute session with reporters featured two cringe-inducing moments. He predicted that he would do well in the caucus "tomorrow," and then cited approving words penned by Des Moines Register columnist "Roger" Yepsen. The caucuses will be held on Thursday, and Yepsen's first name — as any close follower of Iowa politics knows — is David.

Yeah I don't think you even really need to be a "close follower of Iowa politics" to know the name David Yepsen... He is a major political celebrity every four years like clockwork...

I am wondering whether Jeri Thompson could have done a better job running by herself...
