Update: An anonymous commenter (in the comments below) from Idaho expressed disappointment in this post. The best I can do at the moment to improve upon it is to say: read what I wrote about Paul Hackett in the linked to post, read the stories to which I’ve linked regarding thoughts on Fred Thompson and then consider – is Thompson’s heart in this race? The New Republic link for “this one” seems to go only to a teaser on the paid subscriber page of TNR. But, if you Google “Fred Thompson” and “lazy boy,” you will find the article in full.
After watching and listening to Washington Journal this morning with James Pindell (Boston Globe’s NH primary correspondent), and then reading this Washington Post article from today, this one from The New Republic and remembering what I felt and wrote about, here, regarding Paul Hackett‘s less than convincing projection of desire for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Sherrod Brown, I have to ask,
Is Fred Thompson Paul Hackett?
