Fred Thompson has joined the legions of small-c conservatives backing big-C Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman for Congress in New York's 23rd district, because as a professional actor he just couldn't turn down this commercial script.
Couple tiny editorial suggestions, though: the ad writers forgot 'ACORN' and 'the gays' in that list of reasons why America is in so much trouble (unless those things are implied by the word 'trouble' itself?).
Also, if Doug Hoffman is "not a career politician" who will leave Washington as soon as "the job is done," does that mean he'll go on to a) write books about how much trouble America is still in despite his success in "finishing the job," b) go on a speaking tour to explain same, or c) get caught having an affair with an exotic dancer?
I guess we'll just have to wait and see, assuming we survive the next few years.
