Ed Thomspon to the White Courtesy Phone, Ed Thompson to the nearest White Courtesy Phone.

It occurred to me whilst reading this post at Politico that should Tommy Thompson successful navigate the tricky water of a Wisconsin GOP primary, there are going to be numerous mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging conservatives that will not vote for him under and circumstances, thus opening the door to a third party candidate ... and who better to run a statewide third party candidacy (other than Bob Lorge, of course) , than Tommy's very own brother, Ed.

Anyway, if you don't remember how awkward Ed's candidacy for Governor was in 2002, here's a piece from the Times that might jog your memory. Just keep in mind that Tommy wasn't even running back then.

Even if it's not Ed, a conservative, independent candidacy could threaten to split the base of any GOP nominee to left of Ghangis Khan.
