This one is pointed at the pundits. You self-anointed phonies.
In the Republican primary race you have one and all rejected Fred Thompson in favor of the jerk you placed your bet on early in the race. Whether that jerk is McCain, Romney or Giuliani you are one and all rejecting Fred Thompson as the Republican Candidate.
I know why. You decided to sign on with a candidate early in hopes of favor down the road.
Do any of your recall how it is that Fred decided to run? It was because of the actual VOTERS (You do remember us, don't you?) sending him money and begging him to get involved. We saw the same crop of jerks you guys did and we rejected each of them. The only genuine conservatives were considered also-rans from the start.
We didn't want your front runners. We wanted someone who we felt had the guts and the good sense that Fred Thompson displays. Not your polished, projected, fake candidates.
Now that REAL people have chosen why must we listen to YOU, the self-righteous prats, in being told that our choice isn't valid?
In the Preamble to the Constitution does it read "We the pundits" or We the people"?
It's OUR nation, not yours. Fred is OUR choice and you should listen to what WE want.
