Washington, We Have a Problem

Republicans are abuzz with the hope that former actor/senator Fred Thompson will come to the rescue of the whimpering GOP, whose leading presidential candidates so far are a crackpot, former New England governor/male-model Mormon and a thrice-married, pro-choice / pro-gay-rights crossdressing New Yorker. But as good as Thompson sounds on paper, is Christian America really ready for a trophy wife in the White House? Thompson, who turns 65 in August, has three kids with his first wife, whom he divorced in 1985 after 26 years of marriage, and one with his current wife, Jeri Kehn, whom he started dating when she was in her late 20s. He's more than old enough to be her father -- and finally married in 2002 when she was 35. (NYP)

You just can't make this stuff up.

And don't forget that the current wife is 4 years younger than his oldest daughter. Now that is what I call "good family values". And as far as everyone touting him as a belt way outsider, don't forget that for more than 20 years he was a Gucci tassle loafer wearing high priced lobbyist.
