From a reader:
I personally withheld financial support of Thompson in order to see if he could deliver the campaign equivalent of his commentaries this spring. I saw that vigor in his verbal pasting of Chris Wallace on FNS, and am seeing it again now with the tour plans; campaigning when it counts. Looks like it is time to pony up now that he’s in the game and the greatest criticism of him boils down to: He wasn’t mugging for a camera or firing his best shots when the fewest number of voters were not paying attention during silly, pointless, gotcha debates. Which is a positive when you get down to it, yes?
