Fred… Not a seal…

Greetings, loyal minions. Your Maximum Leader sees on the AP news wires that Fred Thompson has been answering questions in Florida. These questions are, presumably, asked by (again presumably) Floridians.

Apparently Sen. Thompson was asked about the Terri Schiavo situation. To your Maximum Leader’s great disappointment Fred didn’t quite sound the right note. He said: “I can’t pass judgment on it. I know that good people were doing what they thought was best…That’s going back in history. I don’t remember the details of it.” He later added that “Local matters generally speaking should be left to the locals. I think Congress has got an awful lot to keep up with.” That is really too bad. Your Maximum Leader can pass judgement on the whole situation. It was a tragedy and a farce all wrapped up into one. It was a tragedy because you had a brain-dead woman who’s parents wanted to care for her and who’s husband (who was no saint by any stretch) wouldn’t do the right thing and just let the parents care for their daughter. The farce took many forms. The first was by the family claiming that Terri wasn’t in a persistent vegetative state. The second layer of the farce was when the Congress of the United States of America decided to intervene in the whold sordid affair. It is too bad that Fred Thompson didn’t just come out and stick with his “federalist” leanings and say that Congress had no business sticking its nose where it didn’t belong.

Later in the AP piece Fred does a little to redeem himself in your Maximum Leader’s eyes… When asked about his decision to decline to participate in upcoming Republican Candidate “Debates” in Florida he said:

“Debates are important, but let’s don’t let the tail wag the dog here. Standing up there 10 in a row, you know, like a bunch of seals waiting for someone to throw you the next fish is not necessarily the best way to impart your information to the American people,” Thompson said. “I’m not above acting like a seal every once in a while and waiting for the next fish. I just don’t want to do it all the time.”

Bravo! Good answer…

Carry on.
