Fred Thompson watch: he talks in Freudian Bushisms

Fred is a busy boy these days: talk radio, NRO, getting a little expose at American Enterprise Institute…even got kind of a nasty piece in the Wall Street Journal.

He seems to have some of Bush’s propensity for malaprops: here’s a radio interview in which he mangles his only text. That would be ok, except that Fred has SO little to say, so little thought or preparation, that if he jumps the rails at all, you got nothing left. Here it is, and by the way, the title of the piece is “Comprehensive or Incomprehensible?”:

But there’s an old saying in Washington that, in dealing with any tough issue, half the politicians hope that citizens don’t understand it while the other half fear that people actually do.

Well, that doesn’t make a lot of sense, Fred…those are basically the same thing. …what you meant to say is that “half the politicians hope that citizens understand, and the other half fear that they actually do.”

But we understand Fred; to you, all politicians are trying to fool the people.

Good luck, guy….keep up the blather.
