Well, it's not true that Fred has NOTHING on him. How about this quotation from his former boss, Richard Nixon (which I have suitably edited):

"Oh, s**t! That kid? He's dumb as hell." -- Richard Nixon, on Watergate tapes, after being told Fred Thompson was hired as Republican counsel.

I know I’m new, and you have been on FR for long time, so I’ll choose my words carefully. GO TO HELL. Why don’t you see my post history before making BASELESS claims. I am a member of the Dane County Republican Party!
If you read the post title, the main purpose of the post was to show how clean Fred is. I would think it would be obvious that the dems are corrupt, considering BOTH of the likely candidates are on Judicial Watch’s Top Ten Corrupt Politicians of 2007. You owe me an apology.

Notice the “The Skeleton Closet ^ “ is a George Soros funded website.

I won't get into the insult fight, but this clarification should be emphasized.

In other words, there is nothing wrong with posting this, but it should be clarified what kind of site this is, and that this is the worst dirt that the left could find on the Republican candidates, whereas the Dems are let off easy.

There, is, in fact, one lie about Fred that I noticed. It is NOT TRUE that he worked as a lobbyist for a pro-abortion outfit, as this site claims. That was the initial charge, made by two of hillary's stooges. But as the explanations came out, the truth was that Fred did NOT work for this organization. One of his colleagues at the firm did. Fred did not. He was not on record as ever having been paid.

The story was that he talked in the hallway with a colleague who was doing the lobbying, who asked Fred for advice of some kind. Even that story is not proven, but only testified to by clintonoids. It is not in the records, since no one was paid for a hallway conversation. Fred says he doesn't remember. Naturally enough, who would remember a brief hallway conversation many years earlier, if it ever took place?

I hardly think this undermines Fred's consistently pro-life record while in office. A major pro-life organization considered all of the candidates and endorsed Fred, after this fake revelation came out.

I see you are supporting a liberal candidate. Why are you posting on a conservative website?

“Oh, I’m so tired of big government Republicanism I could almost support Paul.”

I can certainly understand why you feel this way. There’s still a chance Fred could place 3rd in IA, and maybe pull out a win in SC. BTW, are you sure you have the quote in your tagline correctly attributed? I thought Hitler said that.

“They belong to this Union.";;

That’s pretty interesting, they are endorsing Mike Huckabee. Not my cup of tea.

Can some one be a d!ck and a pu$$y at the same time? I would think they would be mutually exclusive. I just glad Algore didn’t win another blasted award this year.

I found the candidates that I clicked on to be very actuate. But, then, I didn’t bother with the Dems.

Re: The Klintoons
Please correct me if I am wrong but I notice that there is no reference on to the missing F.B.I. files that mysteriously disappeared and then all of a sudden reappeared in the WH during the Klintoon administration.
I suspect that those files were all copied and the Klintoons have them locked up someplace.
I refer to them as the Klintoons’ “J.Edgar Hoover” insurance policy. As long as they have copies of those F.B.I. files they and their minions will never see a day behind proven by Fat Sandy Burlgars’s questionable “sweetheart deal” that he received for stealing classified documents from the National Archives.

Definitely a slanted view of the Pubs vs. the Dems.

Fred was a lady’s man cradle robber (24 year age difference) who ended up with a trophy wife dressed like a slut.

Dennis was just “Looking for love” dating different women until he found his (31 year younger) wonderful British bride with the pierced tongue.

To be honest, I didn’t really read any of the stuff on the dems. That would be like going outside to check if the sky was blue. I just wanted to point out dirt on the corrupt Republican candidates so we know who they are and don’t take steps to nominate them. I also wanted to point out that Fred seems really, really clean. It’s probably redundant for Julie-annie, but there are some FReepers who support McCain and Huckabee.
Apparently, it’s a Soros-Funded site, so I apologize for not mentioning that in the intro. I’ll be more careful about checking sources for sites in the future.

I doubt that. The "Skeleton Closet" has been around for many years, probably before Soros got involved in American politics. It has always been the same: containing some interesting facts but overall seeming uneven with a fairly slim amount of material and not too great depth of research. The main problem seem to be that the author doesn't really devote that much time to the site.

Hillary Clinton's dirt doesn't include half the stuff.

Probably not enough space on the server.

At least he didn’t cheat on his wife, which is more than we can say about a certain former president who now wants to become “First Laddie”.
