Fearless Fred

Morris, Dick
September 2007
Hill;9/19/2007, Vol. 14 Issue 107, p33
The article focuses on U.S. Presidential candidate, former Senator Fred Thompson who, according to the author, is ill-informed, inarticulate and downright lazy. Several news about Thompson are presented including a report that he refuses to take a pledge not to raise taxes, he lobbied for an abortion advocacy group before he became a senator and he lacked about the details of the Terry Schiavo case to comment. The author suggests that Thompson's candidacy is the worst of the 2007-2008 electoral season.
