if Fred Thompson was a SNL fan, he’s not anymore. They weren’t terribly kind to their former NBC colleague tonight.
UPDATE: Bring it on! a Fred head e-mails:
I am a Thompson fan (a Jesse Helms Republican who is also a pragmatist when it comes to electoral politics) and I can assure you that Thompson should and likely does appreciate the SNL piece on him as much as I do. It was hilarious. He believes his apparently non-maniacal campaign is an asset, not a liability, and I agree. And besides, SNL is supposed to do a favorable impression of a politician? And politicians are supposed to quake in fear over the political implications of an SNL impression? Jeez…it couldn’t have gone better as far as this Thompson fan is concerned.
