Comedy gold from the Tennessee Stud, who should spend more time, you know, studying the issues:
Mr. Thompson at times seemed to be looking for his sea legs. In an interview with Kay Henderson of Radio Iowa today, in talking about Iran, he referred to the “Soviet Union and China.” (Ms. Henderson, at the end of her blog post on the exchange, wrote: “No, I did not mistype. Thompson said Soviet Union rather than Russia.”)
On the first day of his visit here, he attacked the Medicare prescription drug plan signed into law by Mr. Bush in 2003 as too costly. That bill that was “written and championed by Iowa’s popular Republican Senator Charles Grassley,” as was tartly noted in a front-page article in The Des Moines Register, referring to the senator whom all the Republican presidential candidates are assiduously courting for an endorsement.
Good grief! This is a serious candidate? We can only hope the Republicans pick him.
