This just in: Fred Thompson is a superficial and media-driven candidate.  Who would ever have guessed?

Here was the best part from the news report:

“He looks good onstage, but I don’t know if he has the gravitas,” said Kathleen Williamson, a conservative Roman Catholic from North Weare. “It seems like he’s trying to win over conservatives, but I’m still not sure he has the credentials. I’m worried he’s trying to get by on his celebrity.”

Ms. Williamson should be worried–his non-campaign campaign to date is nothing other than getting by on his celebrity.  The scary thing is that this seems to pull 15-20% of the Republican primary vote without Fred even having to lift a finger.
