Fred's Out But John's On It

A conservative perspective on the failed candidacy of Fred Thompson. It's long but very good.

From my perspective, Fred said everything right, but it seems voters prefer an emotional connect and Fred never did. In America, it's all about feelings. "You hurt my feelings", "I feel your pain", "I feel inspired", "I've got a feeling". Today's instant oatmeal society wants instant emotional gratification and validation that what they are "feeling" is real and urgent and .... oh well. Bye Fred, we hardly knew ye.
