When lazy hits another level

Newsweek has a huge article on Fred Thompson that talks about the lazy charge. Funny how lazy turned into this from one of his own advisers.
There may be something to the chatter. Thompson has never been an enthusiastic politician. GOP elders in Tennessee had to plead with him to run for the Senate in 1994, and he never felt at home in the Capitol, with its arcane rules of order and endless late-night jawboning sessions. This time around, some close to him question whether moving into the White House is truly Thompson's life ambition—or more the dream of his second wife, Jeri, a former GOP operative who is his unofficial campaign manager and top adviser. People "wonder if she's more into this than he is," says a Thompson adviser, who asked not to be named talking about private matters.

If that mantra catches on, it doesn't flatter Thompson or his wife.


  • Wow, if that's true, that would be the king of all honey-do orders.

  • I read that as fairly immasculating as well.

    I does fit with all the internal reports of her being a problem.
