Tell us what you really think, Fred

In a rambling seventeen minute video, Fred Thompson manages to squeeze "Left-Wing-Big-Government-High-Taxing-Weak-on-Defense-Democratic Party" into about four seconds. If only the rest of the message was so concise.

In the grand scheme of things, a voter in Iowa probably ought to see a single seventeen minute video as preferable to the onslaught of political ads blanketing the airwaves.

At the urging of another blog, I watched the whole video after attempting to watch it earlier but stopping out of sheer boredom.

In the video, Fred summarizes his philosophies and policies, he makes the case that he can reach out to the Zell Miller Democrats whose party has drifted away from them, and he argues against the pursuit of power for its own sake. There. That didn't take long, did it?
