Update: I changed back to FOX and Hume cut away for a Romney interview in the middle of Fred's speech and said that they had microphone problems. It sounded fine to me. Kinda looked like they had a few minutes with Mitt so FOX cut to him. Then they came back to Fred finishing up. Brit asked a reporter what happened and she said basically "nothing" but that Thompson was headed to Tenn. to talk with his mother...

RedState's obituary:

So long, Fred; we hardly even knew ye.

So, Fred Dalton Thompson, as you ride slowly and quietly off into the sunset, not a hollow man but -- most unfortunately -- the owner of one of the most hollow campaigns that I can recall, the words...

So long, Fred; we hardly even knew ye.

Update: Jane Hamsher: "Enjoy the SchadenFred"

This is an election that is clearly, if irritatingly, about "change," and the Wingnut Best n' Brightest wanted very much to nominate a relic. Fascinating. All their yesterdays are lighting these poor dopes to electoral defeat, and that would be sad were it not so comical.
