So much for Fred Thompson being the Great Right Hope

Fred Thompson has exited the race.

I wrote the following shortly after he joined the race, but I never published this for whatever reason…

Poor James Dobson and his merry band of bigots and dinosaurs. Dobson doesn’t seem too happy with the GOP front-runners, and one might think he’d be thrilled to have the Reagenesque Fred Thomspon in the race. Nope.

Dobson wrote:

Isn’t Thompson the candidate who is opposed to a Constitutional amendment to protect marriage, believes there should be 50 different definitions of marriage in the U.S., favors McCain-Feingold, won’t talk at all about what he believes, and can’t speak his way out of a paper bag on the campaign trail?

He has no passion, no zeal, and no apparent ‘want to.’ And yet he is apparently the Great Hope that burns in the breasts of many conservative Christians? Well, not for me, my brothers. Not for me!

I suppose this leaves the Christian Right without a candidate in 2008. [I wrote this pre-ascension of Huckabee].
