thompson, again

Sorry to return to Fred Thompson but he keeps saying really stupid stuff. The latest - Thompson said he has no opinion about the Bush/Republican Congress intervention into the Terri Schiavo case in 2005. Thompson said on a TV interview, when asked, "That's going back in history. I don't remember the details of it."

Fred, it was TWO YEARS AGO. And it was ALL OVER THE NEWS. The details really weren't that difficult to recall - you know, woman in a coma, her husband and legal guardian wants to pull the plug because she has no chance of recovery of any significant brain function (a decision subsequently validated by an autopsy), Bill Frist, Tom DeLay and others decide they know what's best for her, yadda yadda yadda. I mean, if you want to duck the question, fine - coward. But not to remember and call it history as if somebody asked you about the decision to sell wheat to the Soviets in the 1970s is pretty damn lame.

Really Fred, are you cognitively qualified to be president? I mean, we already have an intellectually incurious, short-sighted nimrod in office now - we do not want more of the same.
