An Error-Plagued Campaign

Fred Thompson's campaign has been plagued with errors. Some are relatively minor -- invoking the Tennessee Titans in New Hampshire, promising to attend a long-cancelled debate. But they're troubling, because they seem to add up to a picture of a candidate who either hasn't done his homework, or isn't paying attention.

What's more, Thompson's fundraising numbers allegedly are not what he would wish -- it's predicted he'll come in third behind Giuliani and Romney. If that's the case, it seems that the Republican electorate is signalling that all the MSM hype about Republicans frantically seeking a "conservative alternative" because of dismay with their other choices has been just that . . . hype.
