Nicole already linked a story up about Thompson being Nixon's puppet and all, but I haven't heard much about it in the MSM. I wonder why? What's disturbing about this story outside of Fred being a complete hack is that Nixon thought he was just plain "dumb"
Nixon was disappointed with the selection of Thompson, whom he called "dumb as hell." The president did not think Thompson was skilled enough to interrogate unfriendly witnesses and would be outsmarted by the committee's Democratic counsel.
Oh s---, that kid," Nixon said when told by his chief of staff, H.R. Haldeman, of Thompson's appointment on Feb. 22, 1973.
"Well, we're stuck with him," Haldeman said.
Nixon expressed concern that Thompson was not "very smart."
"Not extremely so," Buzhardt agreed.
"But he's friendly," Nixon said.
"I found Thompson most cooperative, feeling more Republican every day," Buzhardt said.
And Hollywood Fred is trying to be the fundies '08 Presidential candidate. It boggles the mind.
