Suddenly the worst

And so it begins. We've seen a week full of negative stories about Fred Thompson. Everyone knew they were loaded in the cue, just waiting to pop after his announcement, but it's still a fascinating process to watch. He goes from a respected and admired actor/politician to a low-life, lazy, womanizing sleaze bucket overnight.

For example, here's a screen shot of the Hot Air blog--one of the best on the web--on Sunday evening around 7:30pm:

Three stories out of ten and they're all negative. Better call up some mettle.

At least Fred didn't show up to the Spanish-speaking Univision debate held in Florida. The thought of him drawling out "hola" would produce immediate heaving. Oh, and here's a takeaway question, as HA likes to say--why are the candidates speaking to people who cannot speak English when to vote one must be a citizen, and to be a citizen one must speak English?
