Fred Thompson will officially announce his campaign on the 4th of July...
This should be verrrry interesting. After two very lackluster debates, I think the GOP has found its media darling. This guy has gotten more press than people who have actually already declared their intent [B]months[/B] ago. There are high expectations from Thompson, now we'll see if he can deliver.
I'm all for Thompson. It would be a huge relief to finally have a President who can speak coherently on TV, not mangle the English language and not boil all the complicated problems in the world to three word catch phrases you can fit on a bumper sticker.
One Thompson Blog I am sure you all will appreciate. :D

Some people think that our planet is suffering from a fever. Now scientists are telling us that Mars is experiencing its own planetary warming: Martian warming. It seems scientists have noticed recently that quite a few planets in our solar system seem to be heating up a bit, including Pluto.
NASA says the Martian South Pole's ice cap has been shrinking for three summers in a row. Maybe Mars got its fever from earth. If so, I guess Jupiter's caught the same cold, because it's warming up too, like Pluto.
This has led some people, not necessarily scientists, to wonder if Mars and Jupiter, non-signatories to the Kyoto Treaty, are actually inhabited by alien SUV-driving industrialists who run their air-conditioning at 60 degrees and refuse to recycle.
Silly, I know, but I wonder what all those planets, dwarf planets and moons in our SOLAR system have in common. Hmmmm. SOLAR system. Hmmmm. Solar? I wonder. Nah, I guess we shouldn't even be talking about this. The science is absolutely decided. There's a consensus.
