If I were a Thompson supporter, I'd be very unhappy about George Will's devastating column today. The smart ones will be worried; the "Fred is our salvation and can do no wrong" group will simply be angry. Excerpt:
Sean Hannity, who is no Torquemada conducting inquisitions of conservatives, asked Thompson: "When you look at the other current crop of candidates -- Republicans -- where is the distinction between your positions and what you view as theirs?" Thompson replied: "Well, to tell you the truth, I haven't spent a whole lot of time going into the details of their positions."Wow. Laid-back is one thing; downright dumb is another. And however you look at Thompson's statement, it is just a dumb thing to say on national TV.
