    Fred Thompson, the former senator and candidate for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination, is upping the ante in the inner Republican party battle over the special election in New York's 23rd congressional district by starring in an ad for Doug Hoffman, the Conservative Party candidate. Thompson, who first endorsed Hoffman last month, has recently been joined by Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in endorsing him over the Republican Party nominee, Republican State Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava. The election, which happens a week from today, is being held up as a case study of the current conflict...

    NY Daily News ^ | 10/27/2009 | Elizabeth Benjamin
    Former US senator, 2008 presidential contender and "Law & Order" star Fred Thompson stars in a new TV ad for NY-23 candidate Doug Hoffman in which he urges voters to "send a message to Washington" by voting for the Conservative nominee. Thompson, who was among the first national pols to endorse Hoffman, has a history with the New York Conservative Party. In January 2008, state Conservative Party Chairman Mike Long called Thompson his "favorite candidate" and hinted at an early endorsement. This was a snub to the hometown GOP contender, Rudy Giuliani, which isn't so surprising, since Long and the...

And despite the fact that the NRCC is throwing $200,000.00 - $300,0000.00 at this race to get Dede Scozzafava elected, Hoffman has has own haul of cash.

    RedState, Michelle Malkin and many others have been doing outstanding work covering the race in New York's 23rd Congressional District. If you haven't been following it, the race in NY-23 has Fred Thompson, Club for Growth and Bill Kristol on one side, Newt Gingrich, Daily Kos and Michael Steele on another side, and Bill Clinton and Barack Obama on yet another side. In short, it's a free-for-all. Much like the earlier Toomey v. Specter fight in Pennsylvania and the ongoing Crist v. Rubio fight in Florida, the fight in New York 23 represents another hard-fought battle for the soul of...

    So Democrats finally got a Republican to sign on to their health care bill that will saddle Americans taxpayers with more than $2.8 trillion in debt over the next 20 years... The best example of this is up in the special election to fill the House seat vacated by moderate Republican Rep. John McHugh. Republican Party bosses in upstate New York and the National Republican Congressional Committee may have thought it a good idea to put liberal state Rep. Dede Scozzafava on the Republican line. But as Politico reports, conservatives -- and even many Republicans -- aren't eating that dog...

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) may have stepped into a political quagmire after endorsing a moderate New York Republican's special election bid. A host of GOP leaders have tried to distance themselves from the ongoing showdown between Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava, a centrist Republican, and Doug Hoffman, the local Conservative Party's candidate. But Gingrich offered his perspective to the three-way contest for now-Army Secretary John McHugh's vacant seat on Friday when he became one of only a handful of conservative Republicans to openly back his party's struggling candidate. “The special election for the 23rd Congressional District is an important test...

    Vanity | 27 August 2009 | Question
    Back during the 2008 Iowa Cacuses, a rumor was circulated the night before that Fred Thompson was going to pull out of the race. During an interview the next day, Thompson said he knew who was behind it, but refused to discuss beyond saying it cost him "a couple of points". I understand during the election, nobody was going to admit who did it, certainly not until after November. OK, November came, went, and now the socialist-in-chief has everybody distracted, so, I ask: who did it?

    So here we were in 2007 worrying about who would take the Reagan "mantle of conservatism" forward. John McCain, Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani, Duncan Hunter, Mike Huckabee, Ron Paul and others were already in the race to become the next GOP nominee for president. And you know what? Conservatives were freaking out! Was this really the crop we had to choose from? None of these guys, with the exception of maybe Duncan Hunter or to an extent Ron Paul, really understood what conservatism was. Then a grassroots draft campaign was initiated to bring someone into the race that really understood...

    A campaign on conservative talk radio, fueled by President Obama's calls to control exorbitant medical bills, has sparked fear among senior citizens that the health-care bill moving through Congress will lead to end-of-life "rationing" and even "euthanasia." The controversy stems from a proposal to pay physicians who counsel elderly or terminally ill patients about what medical interventions they would prefer near the end of life...But on right-leaning radio programs, religious e-mail lists and Internet blogs, the proposal has been described as "guiding you in how to die," "an ORDER from the Government to end your life," promoting "death care" and,...

This is understandable, I suppose, but from my experience, what a nominee says during his or her hearing, while certainly not irrelevant, is one of the least important considerations upon which they should base their vote.

    Sen. Fred Thompson is making his new radio debut today with "The Fred Thompson Show," on Westwood One. Fred's show runs two hours a day, from 12:00 Noon - 2:00 PM ET live in most markets. If there is no radio station in your area carrying Fred's show, you can listen online live at this link. I supported Fred's run for President, and love to hear his common sense talk. I hate that he is on at the same time Rush Limbaugh is on, but I'm glad his voice will be heard. We'll try to provide some audio from Fred's...

    Liberty is punch drunk. Every day she absorbs a frenzy of body blows from the Obama administration that are sure to result in knockout, of not permanent hospitalization or a coma. Liberty is not the only lady under assault. Truth has been mugged and muzzled. She cannot be heard. We no longer have a free press. The media is silent about the excesses, abuses, cronyism, and outright corruption of the Obama administration. The media has traded its traditional role of watchdog for lapdog. It uses its bandwidth lavishing praise and worship in a sickening display of, well, a sickening display....

  • Bill O’Reilly out, Fred Thompson in, Jeri Kehn is hot

    Bill O’Reilly’s giving up his day job. He’s leaving “The Radio Factor” and passing the baton to Fred Thompson. Thompson has an incredibly serpentine career path. Actor. Senator from Tennessee. Actor. Presidential candidate. Actor. And now, radio talk show host. The Washington, DC-based “Fred Thompson Show” will focus on politics and pop culture. He’ll have guests and take phone calls. It will premiere on more than 125 stations March 2. One one hand, we’re not really sure if the slow talkin’ southerner will be a very compelling radio host. On the other hand, his wife Jeri Kehn is hot. Good...

  • Sarah Palin should hire Fred Thompson

    Everyone is a political consultant, or at least thinks he or she is. Since Sarah Palin was chosen as the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate, there has been no paucity of unsolicited advice offered to her by pundits, bloggers and yes, by actual political consultants. I must confess that I have proposed one particular idea for Alaska's governor in the past, and I'll come back to it shortly. But the advice for Gov. Palin that's making news this week comes from columnist, satirist and best-selling author Ann Coulter. In her new book Guilty, Ms. Coulter mentions Sarah Palin a number...

    When the news broke that Fred Thompson would be taking over Bill O'Reilly's radio spot, FredHeads cheered. It was reported that Rudy Giuliani was in negotiations for the gig as well. Rudy may give the SoCons fits, but on fiscal conservatism, taxes, and national security, he is one of the best. He also doesn't take any crap from anyone, especially liberals. And Rudy is no stranger to radio, having hosted a weekly call-in show back in the 1990's. Had he beaten out Thompson for the job, we may have been treated to some great, snarky stuff like this.
