Was listening to Rush, and he just announced that Fred is dropping out. Ditto at CNN and FOX News as they are reporting it as well.
This Saturday on Meet The New Press, Doug and Pat (McCain supporters) MAY be insufferable….
Oh, well, I can cheer up a tad as Mark "the Canadian Salman Rushdie" Steyn will be gracing our show as a special guest.
Now I gotta through the whole process of picking somebody again……sheesh…
Update: just received this from the campaign staff:
McLean, VA – Senator Fred Thompson today issued the following statement about his campaign for President:
"Today I have withdrawn my candidacy for President of the United States. I hope that my country and my party have benefited from our having made this effort. Jeri and I will always be grateful for the encouragement and friendship of so many wonderful people."
