Fred Thompson

| | Comments (0)
OK, just so you know, Fred Dalton Thompson was a Senate campaign manager, lawyer (co-counsel to the Watergate committee), and lobbyist for a long time before he was a professional actor. He started acting when he played himself, as a lobbyist, in a movie about the S&L stuff in the mid-80s.

He had more experience in DC politics than most of the Republicans running for President, even apart from his eight years as a Senator (he was elected to finish Al Gore's term when Gore became Vice President).

To attack Thompson for being an actor makes even less sense than when people made the same attack of Ronald Reagan when he ran for President.
