Bye, Bye Fred Thompson

It's been glad knowing you. This isn't surprising that he left the race after his speech to nowhere. I can't wait to see Lady MacCheney have to go on

It's been glad knowing you. This isn't surprising that he left the race after his speech to nowhere. I can't wait to see Lady MacCheney have to go on teevee and tell us why Fredrick of Hollywood is gone baby gone. A terrible candidate that ran a snooze-athon of a campaign.

MSNBC's Shuster and the WaPo's Cillizza comments on the demise of Hollywood Fred. It looks like he won't endorse any of the remaining candidates. Erick at Red State is spinning Fred's departure like crazy, (It's not the end of Fred) but he tells us that Fred doesn't like the GOP field that's left standing:

I spoke with one of Fred's advisors a little while ago. We should note that Fred Thompson has not and will not be endorsing any of the other candidates. My understanding is that with no strong clearly conservative person in the race, he saw no point in endorsing

That's got to hurt McCain I would imagine. Here's a new commercial for the Dems. "Even Fred Thompson can't endorse a Republican for President!" Or something like that...

Can you help us out?
