Whatever Fred Thompson's been doing since he finished pretending to run against John McCain for President, it's sure kept him busy. Otherwise he surely would have read in the newspaper that John McCain doesn't like too much talk about his POW service. And you'd think Fred would have been more careful than to say that being a POW doesn't qualify you to be President - must have missed it when Wesley Clark got savaged by Republicans and the media for saying the same thing. I guess if Fred managed to miss all that, we shouldn't be surprised that he hasn't yet gotten around to reading the Obama speech Fred claims was "designed to appeal to American critics abroad" in Berlin ("...just as American bases built in the last century still help to defend the security of this continent, so does our country still sacrifice greatly for freedom around the globe"). Seems Fred's sure been busy. Guess it really wasn't fair for anyone to call him lazy after all.
