What is the deal with the Fred Thompson hysteria anyway? The Democrat-Gazette coverage of his appearance in Philadelphia yesterday indicates that he was outshone rhetorically by Mike Huckabee, which couldda shouldda been expected. Thompson is OK reciting words written by others for TV series. He had, as Huckabee sharply noted, a mediocre record as a senator.

Now, it sounds like from this NY Times article, he'll have a campaign where the wife is wearing the pants. That won't do for a manly, values-laden Republican man will it? Nor will his rumored shenanigans as a lothario.
