the grim, inevitable announcement
We anxiously awaited Fred Thompson’s announcement that he’d run for President. And we waited … and we waited.
But when people started drumming their fingers in expectation Fred would drop out of the race, Sen. Thompson decides to be punctual? I still like you, Fred, but that kinda sucked.
The announcement, via Instapundit (since I can’t remember my Friend of Fred log-in):
“Today I have withdrawn my candidacy for President of the United States. I hope that my country and my party have benefited from our having made this effort. Jeri and I will always be grateful for the encouragement and friendship of so many wonderful people.”
Guess I have to pick another candidate to
get excited about hold my nose and vote for.
