CQ Radio: Tiresome Smear Campaigns & More!

blog radio

Today on CQ Radio (2 pm CT), we'll discuss the latest hit job on Fred Thompson. Not satisfied with the way the media have gone after Fred's wife, Santa Monica attorney Henry Reynolds bought a domain name similar to the campaign's -- and posted several links to the KKK and white supremacists. Fausta will join us to talk about this, and afterwards (or maybe simultaneously), Jim Geraghty of National Review's Campaign Spot will join us to discuss this tiresome false-flag ploy.

Call 646-652-4889 to join the conversation!

Isn't it just TERRIBLE, and so unheard of, that anonymous people would say bad things about a candidate! Who'd ever a thunk it?

Cap'n, coupla things:

1 - I daresay about 99.9999999% of your readers would never have heard of this guy in CA and his KKK weblink collection and purported "link" (?) to Fred Thompson if you hadn't posted it here on The more you protest these "smears", most of which are so ridiculous as to not be worth any time thinking about, let alone responding to, the more heft and influence you bestow on the purveyors of such crap.

2 - the more you whine about how mean people say mean things about Fred Thompson, the greater the impression you leave that your boy is a hothouse flower, a delicate soul, and a weak-kneed crybaby ... so much so that you, his big brother, have to come down to the elementary school playground about every other day and beat up on all those third graders who are making life hard on your baby brother.

The Fred Thompson for President campaign now seems to consist of four main themes:

I - "I don't know who's running my campaign any more."

II - "My wife is tougher than your wife"

III - "If those meanies don't stop saying mean things about me, I'm gonna cry!"

IV - "Don't stop ... thinking about ... when I'm someday gonna announce something!"

(sung to the tune of a well known former Clinton campaign theme song and '80s pop hit)

At least Giuliani, Romney, and McCain fight their own fights, and don't whine about stupid and unfair criticism from blithering idiots who aren't qualified to clean up after their dogs.... when a columnist or interviewer or debate moderator asks a really insultingly stupid question of them, those guys fire right back and then some, puttin' em in their place.

You should focus on what Fred has done, is doing, and is going to do to beat up on the Defeatocrats, and the Islamist wackos, and the other assorted low lifes we face in order to protect our backsides.
