Huh? Your Name Is Not Fred?

Posted by Mark on April 1, 2007

Today, a Thompson announced he was running for president. Uh newsflash, it wasn’t a Fred:

Former Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson officially announced his bid for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination Sunday, telling ABC’s “This Week” he is confident about his chances.

“In Iowa, the polls last week came out that I was in fifth place and moving up and at 5 percent,” he said, adding that things are starting “to coalesce, and I feel very, very optimistic about my future.”

C’mon…admit it- you said HUH….like I did. Mr. Thompson, I hate to break the bad news to you, but you’re the ONLY ONE in America ‘confident’ about your chances.

My guess is, he threw his name out there as soon as he heard Fred might run. But I think it’s time for me to make a bold prediction…in fact, I’ll go out on a limb here: Tommy Tompson will not win the GOP nomination. He will not be our next president.

In 2 years, you will not remember his name.
