Will Reston isn't the only one upset with Fred and taking up the pen to tell him so. Quint Hillyer, editor of the American Spectator, is also a bit perturbed with Thompson... but for different reasons:
You, sir, have a serious responsibility to fulfill. When there were a number of other conservatives considering whether they should try to fill the void in the Republican presidential field, you stepped forward and said you were the one. You said you had the fire in the belly. You sucked all the air out of the atmosphere on the right. In doing so, you pledged to run a different kind of campaign.

But if you are going to be the big man on the right, you can't be lazy. Yet you have been so. You have a responsibility to bone up on basic local issues of national import. Any old moron should know, for instance, that you can't go into Florida without having at least thought about what you would say if asked about Terri Schiavo or about the Everglades.
What are Thompson fans spiking their punch with? Its well and fine for a blogger like Will to call for the "political assassination" of Mitt Romney but calling your fav candidate a "moron"? And this is the editor of AmSpec? I expect a bit more class than this.

Hillyer continues:
What catalyzes this letter is a campaign phone call I received last night. A bright young woman calling on behalf of your campaign in northern Virginia asked if I would mind listening to a message from you. Well, certainly. And then your voice came on. You said you wanted to return power to the people, to good old regular folks like me. You said it was time to take the power away from the politicians in Washington. You said we needed to return to a government of common sense. You said something about emphasizing our conservative values. And you thanked me for listening.

And that was it. There was as much substance as cotton candy, except that it was like stale, three-week-old cotton candy because the phrases were so pathetically hackneyed.
This was great.. because I got the same phone call... only, with my handy dandy Mac at hand... I recorded it. And yes, its probably as bad as he says it is. Listen for yourself:

That's quick thinking to record with the Mac Justin.

His message to me comes across very bland. He sounds like he wants to improve the country but doesn't instill confidence that knows how to do it or is motivated enough to do so.



Was it me or did he say in the audio that he's running because he hates to see the cynicism of the people about Washington politics? Wasn't that Barack Obama's line about 5 months ago?

"Gosh, it just rubs my britches all wrong to see you all so, gosh darn, cynical, so I'm running for president.It's so bad that even Bessy is just givin' us sour milk."

This has to rank as one of the lamest explanations for running.
