The Celebrated Jumping Fred of Clodhopper County 

Too much lead in the Hollywood Fred

Looks like Fred Thompson (photographed while campaigning in Iowa last summer) will drop out of contest:
“Without a solid third-place finish, there’s no point in going on,” a Thompson adviser said Wednesday. “It was an honorable race, and he turned out to be a good candidate. The moment had just passed.”

The moments they come, the moments they go.

Thompson will be returning to Fairfax Virginia where he and wife Jeri will appear together in a Kroger Supermarket production of Born Yesterday. The couple will live in Fred's old pickup truck until the Writers Guild strike is settled.

Thats'a nice.


Rumors of a dead Fred, are apparently greatly exaggerated ( TPM/Election Central ):
Thompson himself says it isn't happening. Here's what he had to say in an interview this morning with KCCI-TV in Des Moines:

"That is absolutely made up out of whole cloth," said the former U.S. Senator from Tennessee.

Thompson said a rival campaign was likely the source of that rumor.

Keep the yams in the warming stand Hawkeye fans; that ham ain't baked yet.
