OK. I gotta stand up for Thompson on this. He really is a motorcyclist and this isn't a Romney-chicken-flipin' photo-op, prop shot. He's legitimate. Not a weekend warrior, but a genuine enthusiast who's got plenty of miles in the saddle.I still wouldn't vote for him, but he's probably one of the more "human" candidates the GOP has in the pack.

Really? I find that surprising.

True though. After all, Wisconsin is home to Harley-Davidson...(You don't ride, do you? :-))

Yep, he rode all the way from Sturgis this week to be there...

Wow, I'm sorry guys. I'll pull the snark.

It's cool, Mike. That's what separates us (you, me, other decent Americans) from the right wing: we care about what's true. It speaks volumes that a progressive blog cares about getting it right, and the Fox toady blogs care about... well, crushing dissenting voices at any cost.Good on you, Mike.

Sometimes I do. I figure Tommy's probably having a bad enough day without me.

Mike, mine was snark also.

Well I hope you snarksters are happy. I'm sure you had something to do with this...
