I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

A glass completely empty

The fact that Fred Thompson looked good for awhile to republicans certainly doesn't speak well for the rest of those running for the Republican nomination. Fred only looked good because they really didn't know him. He is not a glass half full or half empty - he is a glass that's completely empty and it seems he proves it every day.
More gaffes from Fred Thompson: Not only has he misspoken or said he didn't know about Terri Schiavo, or the controversy about oil drilling in the Everglades, or that he was unaware that a federal judge had ruled that lethal injection procedures in his home state of Tennessee were unconstitutional, last night in Iowa he said that the Dems controlled congress when John Roberts went through his confirmation hearings for Chief Justice.

That is wrong, the Republicans still controlled the Senate and the Judiciary Committee of course, and Fred was designated to make the rounds on Capitol Hill at the time as Roberts’ shepherd.
OK Republicans, bring Fred on. Do you really think that the country is ready for another lazy and intellectually lazy President after eight years of George W. Bush.


  1. I have to admit I was temporally attracted by his (supposed) ability to stand apart from the crowd.

    Then I discovered Fred had a track record of.... nothing!

    Then my brother turned me on to Ron Paul. He has a track record, he isn't bought by any special interest group or corporation (as the rest of Republicans and Democrats are), and his platform matters to America as a whole, not motivated for votes.

    I always knew there was hope for you. Yes, Ron Paul is attractive even to someone like me. Contrary to what the theocons might say the US was not founded as a Christian Nation but as a Libertarian Nation. Much of the constitution comes from the Great Law of Peace of the Iroquois, the original Libertarian constitution.

  3. Found your ad through Blog Rush, very insigntful, Ron.

    Nevertheless, I have to disagree with Justadog. Ron Paul is completely supported by special interest groups, specifically white supremacist groups all over America and David Duke himself!

    Stormfront White Nationalists are fundraising for him now:
