Fred Thompson is Finally In

After four months of testing the waters, Fred Thompson has finally made his intention to run for president official. You can check out his video at Fred '08. He was on Leno last night, but as I've started a new early work schedule, I did not stay up to watch. (Hot Air has video highlights that I will check out later.)

Now that he is officially a candidate, you can expect his rivals to turn up the heat. And look for more hit jobs from the mainstream media about his wife, his former lobbying career, and the fact that he's also an actor. Gee, I thought the Left loved actors! Oh, right, just not conservative ones.

As for his undistinguished record as a senator, whose senatorial record is distinguished out of the current crop of candidates? Out of the frontrunners, neither Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama or John Edwards have introduced any substantial legislation, and the press just loooves them. (As for Hillary, the biggest item on her resume is that she's married to Bill Clinton. That, and she's a dyed-in-the-wool socialist who wants to institute the Nanny States of America.) Out of the Republican frontrunners, only McCain has been (and still is) a senator. While he's served with distinction for the most part, his part in the recent illegal immigrant amnesty debacle will be a big black mark against his name.

And if we're going to hold lobbying against Thompson, we should certainly consider holding Edwards' bloodsucking trial lawyer past against him. He made his pile by putting doctors out of business on dubious claims of malpractice. And how about Hillary's unscrupulous past?

I'm now looking very forward to seeing if Fred can walk as well as he can talk. Let the games begin!

UPDATE (11:45 ET): See? That didn't take long.

His "I'm in, I'm not in" nonsense really turned me of, but if he's the nominee, I'll vote for him.
