Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

The Thompson Twins??

No, not these guys, though it is true that I have a lot of 80s nostalgia (why else would I spend so much time on Reagan?).

I’m wondering why there has been no talk at all about the possible confusion of the GOP having potentially two candidates named Thompson running for president on the primary ballots: Fred Thompson, and former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson. Tommy’s campaign doesn’t look all that serious--perhaps he’s just angling for the VP nod. Maybe he could be Fred Thompson’s running mate! A Thompson-Thompson ticket would make bumper stickers easier, and the slogan? Think "Thompson Squared."

I know what you’re thinking: "Steve’s got to stop inhaling Peter’s second-hand cigar smoke."

They would each pledge to walk 500 miles for a grand total of a 1000 miles.

Well ... two reasons:

  1. Because the GOP isn’t clever enough to capitalize on it.
  2. Because nobody expects Tommy Thompson to make it to Iowa. His campaign is an utter non-starter.

Fred Thompson is another matter. Now, if we could pair him up with Emma Thompson, we might have something.

I just want to say that Hayward’s oddities have nothing to do with inhaling anything. He owns them by nature. The Thompson twins! Get back to work Steve, you have too much time on your hands.
