Fred Thompson

Lazy Like a Fox.

A great article by Newsweek that takes a close and careful look at GOP-darling-of-the-week Fred Thompson. And yes, the cover of Newsweek this week really is Fred Thompson with the caption 'Lazy Like a Fox' (can we say 'ouch?').

In any event, fun factoids from the article:

-Thompson is six feet six inches - making him the only presidential candidate since Bill Bradley to be taller than me. I know you all needed to know this.

-Thompson got a girl pregnant when he was 16 years old, and was a father when he was a senior in high school. The Thompson campaign is expected to use this to combat the image of him as lazy.
