The CarpetBagger Report on Fred Thompson:
"the poor guy doesn’t know very much, particularly on matters of national significance."
Surely a man who has: practiced law for some 30+ years, including stints as an assistant U.S. Attorney, worked as a campaign manager for a U.S. Senator, served as White House counsel, investigated presidents and civil servants (including Watergate), who is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and a Visiting Fellow with the American Enterprise Institute, and who served 9 years in the United States Senate can be expected to know a little about "matters of national significance."
CarpetBagger, a liberal blogger, from my (shudder) own Democratic party, who promotes political novices such as John Edwards and Barack Obama, not to mention a one-and-a-quarter-term Hillary Clinton, displays some profound ignorance and hypocrisy with the claim that Thompson "doesn't know very much."
Question the man's positions or his politcal views, call him a conservative or right-wing, but he's not stupid.
Stupid is telling your voters to throw away their SUV's when you own more than a few.
Ignorant is calling for a withdrawal from Iraq, but an attack on ally Pakistan.
