Fred Thompson's campaign spokesperson Mary Matlin is lying about the reason that Fat-Head Fred ran and hid from the Fox New Hampshire Republican Debate yesterday. She's claiming that the decision to not appear in the debate was that Leno had a bigger audience.
"This is a message-driven campaign, and we want to drive people, and the biggest place to do that was Jay Leno."
Fat-Head Fred could have announced on Labor Day, or even a day later on Tuesday, and still appeared in the debate -- the Leno show would have fallen all over themselves to get Fred on to make this big announcement on whatever day Fred wanted -- but Fat-Head Fred chose instead to appear on Leno on Wednesday in order to have an excuse to not appear in the debate.
Fat-Head Fred isn't prepared to debate. Fat-Head Fred knows that once he opens his fat mouth America will discover that he's precisely what President Nixon described -- "dumb as hell."
Fat-Head Fred's people think the Republican voters are stupid, and will swallow lies like this. Since these same core voters are still swallowing Bush's lies about Iraq and the US Attorney firings, maybe Fat-Head Fred's people are right.
I hope so... I hope this dumb-ass gets the Republican nomination. He will lose to anyone he debates in a national forum. He's an empty vessel actor, a pretender, and a professional liar. All he has to do is open his mouth and talk for an hour and that will become painfully clear.
