As with the original, Thompson still concludes with the thought: "Now I am really ashamed to carry an American passport."

THEN LEAVE AND STAY OUT!

They can second guess their outrageous comments all they like... we still catalog and record them.

I used to think Thompson was funny.

Then I woke up one day and realized he's just an a$$hole on drugs.

Didn't ESPN fire Rush Limbaugh over a less inflamatory statement?

This business of equating merely abusive American practices with blood thirsty genocidal murder commited by the Nazis does nothing but obscure the reality of what the Nazis did.

People who do that on a regular basis can be fairly said to be holocaust deniers.

Hunter probably has some anti-semitic friends in Europe he's laying down cover for. Or, maybe Hunter is an anti-semite. I've noticed a lot of his biggest fans are.

You think?

Hunter Thompson has done more drugs than any person on the face of the earth, living OR dead.

LOL. I think its funny all these freepers are taking him so seriously or anybody would publish Hunter's comments within the context of being newsworthy or sincere. At least the guy is an avid 2nd amendment supporter. Even if it does include a suitcase full of drugs and good honest hard working man's whiskey :-)

Thompson once predicted that Kobe Bryant case would be bigger than O.J. Simpson's. His judgement becomes more questionable by the day.

Anyone eho is surprised that HST became a shallow-thinking burnout did not read his stuff.

He was trying desperately to warn us, with his arrogant glorified tales of alcohol and drug binges, that he would become an addled fool in his later years.

And here he is, an addled fool. Drug burnout. He somehow could find NOTHING to criticize in 8 years of Clinton. He re-discovered his political voice only after Jan 2001, when the Clintons were out of the WH.

To give him the benefit of the doubt, perhaps Hillary has his FBI file on her laptop and he's simply frightened into silence on the Left's myriad sins. His credibility left with his brain cells.

If you read Hunter's columns, you will find that quite often he bets on the losing team. So who do you see in November 2004???

He rarely talks to reporters. When he does...you are correct...they have to come bearing gifts or be shot at. Most of these folks don't realize he bashed Klintoon for 8 years. Now he was no friend of Nixon either but the guy is so warped he is interesting but I wouldn't take anything he said seriously. This is bat country you know!!!

Hunter can join his friend Garry "Mr. Jane Pauley" Trudeau on the sh*t list.

Just damn.

If you want on the list, FReepmail me. This IS a high-volume PING list...

The drugs Ozzie and Keith Richard have done are literally chump change compared to Hunter; he's a professional.

"In a column entitled, "Let's Go to the Olympics," Thompson went off on the Abu Ghraib prison picture scandal, exclaiming: "Not even the foulest atrocities of Adolf Hitler ever shocked me so badly as these [Abu Ghraib] photographs did.""

That really is how the liberal mind works. The murder of countless innocents is nothing compared to anything that can be used against your opponent.

"Hunter can go too far sometimes," the Bristol-based ESPN employee told the DRUDGE REPORT.

Hunter went too far when he survived the womb.

Hmmm. I remember just one critique of Clinton, in 1992 in RS, but his political writing disappeared, at least from Rolling Stone, after that. I just guessed that someone on the high Left "got" to him. He wrote about thoroughbred racing or pollo or something.

I'd like to read his critiques of the Clinton cabal. Looking forward to it.

Oh, I've read HST's work, and have no doubt that he beats them on sheer variety. On volume of use, though...that's some pretty stiff competition.

This is similar to the policy around the Eaker Compound, Humble Manor and both Deer Camp North and South. The only difference is that you have to have a carton of smokes too.
