Fox News reports that former Tennesee senator Fred Thompson is dropping out of the Republican race for President. Via Fox reporter Carl Cameron:Ah, one question, Fred. you are telling your friends and supporters that your campaign is over. When did it ever start?
Fox News has learned that Fred Thompson is returning to his home in McLean VA and plans to withdraw from the race. He has begun calling friends, family and supporters and telling them his campaign is over.
A couple months ago in south Alabama I saw a bumper sticker on a car that read "Fred Thompson - Southern Fried Reagan". I had to pull to the side of the road until I could stop laughing.
So long, Fred. Enjoy your southern friend whatever. However if your wife divorces you now that there's no longer a chance for her to be First Hottie, would you mind introducing me to her? Just a suggestion.
