Fred Had a Bad Day

It was a rough day for Fred Thompson, the "Johnny I'm Coming, I'm Coming, I Swear I'm Coming Lately" savior of the GOP's casting call for a remake of "Grumpy Old Men."

Per Talking Points Memo, in a private email obtained by the Associated Press, Fred got this critique from none other than Focus on the Family's James Dobson:
Isn't Thompson the candidate who is opposed to a Constitutional amendment to protect marriage, believes there should be 50 different definitions of marriage in the U.S., favors McCain-Feingold, won't talk at all about what he believes, and can't speak his way out of a paper bag on the campaign trail?" Dobson wrote.
"He has no passion, no zeal, and no apparent 'want to.' And yet he is apparently the Great Hope that burns in the breasts of many conservative Christians? Well, not for me, my brothers. Not for me!"

Not for me, either, James.

The thing about actors is that some of them can act so well that they even convince themselves.
