Fred! Starting to hit his stride...

Fred Thompson gave a speech last night in Orange County, and if you are wondering about why people are getting so excited about a Thompson entry into the race, all you have to do is to click here, and then allow the man's words and wisdom wash over you like a soothing waterfall. (h/t Glenn Reynolds)

Fred seems to know exactly what America needs in a leader. And what makes me so intrigued with him is that he does not mince words: he tells you how things are, no matter how controversial that may be with the Political Consultants who seem to be running things these days. Frankly I am tired of politicians tiptoeing around sensitive issues that might not break "perfectly" according to focus-group polling. Thompson seems like the genuine article.

Kind of reminds me of another actor that ran for President not so long ago...
