Thompson Joins Huckabee In Firing on Press

By Erick Posted in Comments (24) / Email this page » / Leave a comment »

Of course the difference is that Huckabee fired a shotgun over the heads of the campaign press corps accidentally and Fred was just defending a staffer in a snowball fight for fun.

All in good fun. Still, it's nice to see someone pelting reporters with snowballs.

[UPDATE:] By the way, I'm told that the guy taking the video is John Bentley, the same guy who captured the video of Fred at the Firehouse, which showed Roger Simon was full of crap in his Politico article.

Could it be, Fred was wearing a hat. Not a "funny hat", but a hat all the same.

Seriously, that was pretty good and showed a nice side of Fred. Where's that Fred been hiding?

but people had to look past many of their favorite information filters, and some haven't been willing to put that much effort into it. They'd rather call him lazy, and flip to the next channel.

This was a teaser, the full snowball fight is going to be on Pay TV on FredTV.....LOL.

One of the FredBots with the fancy signature block can add a direct link....LOL.

...doesn't pause like a usual politician as if to think, "This will look great on TV!" He never breaks stride, heads straight for the snow drift, packs it tight, and then asks, "Which one of you is about to get a cold, wet fistful of conservatism?"

I love this guy.

As that video shows, Fred Thompson has a personality & a sense of humor, unlike a certain plastic-like northeastern liberal governor.

Another point worth making is that Fred's gettng noticed, appearing on FNS this Sunday. He also just picked up a nice endorsement from Iowa State Representative Gary Worthan.

A certain discredited talk show host still posits that "Fred isn't going anywhere" and that "Romney's the only candidate" with "energy, organization and finance" in "Iowa, Wyoming, New Hampshire, Michigan, South Carolina and Florida."

Unfortunately, Mitt doesn't have credibility. That talk show host doesn't have much credibility either but that's another story.

But so did Bob Dole. Catch my drift? I like Fred, I like his personality, I like his consistency, I am just not convinced any of that will get to the voters in a general election.

On the other hand I think Mitt appears weird and akward in explaining past statements. It is almost like he is void of any sense of humor what so ever... no ability to laugh at himself. Sort of like, well, John Kerry, Al Gore, and Hillary Clinton.

It's not a silly hat if it's his hat. That's different from the Dukakis-Tank rule which he was employing at the fire station.

Fred could barely get his arm over his head.

Maybe he'll have a career in the major league waiting for him when he fails to get the nomination. I just hope they don't give him a hard time about taking honorariums from bookies.

I could have watched Fred lob snowballs for a lot longer.

OT: Just purchased a bunch of Fred merch. at his store. Yeah!! (Donated to the Blog Blast which was successful also.)


You may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you.

Geeze, people. Can't you just enjoy this moment of levity in political campaigning without the personal attacks?

I can't help but notice that none of you ever attack him on the issues. It's always the same media-created mantras.

I enjoyed that and thought Fred looked handsome and manly in his cowboy hat.

I'd like to see edwards try throwing a snowball with his Girlie-Man hands.

All apologies to any Girlie-Men who might be offended to John Edwards being compared to them.
