What is Fred Thompson thinking?

I was hopefully looking to Fred Thompson as the great white hope to the Republican party. Well, as of today his hiring Spencer Abraham as campaign manager just put my support for him extremely in doubt. He says he is for border security, strong on the war on terror, and then he hires a man like Spencer Abraham - read about him here .

Who a candidate puts on his team tells much about the candidate himself. I may have to go with Guliani.

And then he might recycle McCain's staffers

I thought better of you than that, sir.

COLUMBIA --S.C. Treasurer Thomas Ravenel resigned from office Tuesday, more than a month after he was indicted on a federal cocaine charge.
If convicted, Ravenel would face up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine.
Ravenel also has stepped down as state campaign chairman for Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani.

Oh, and:

Vitter acknowledged late Monday that he had contacted the high-end escort service of Deborah Jeane Palfrey before his 2004 Senate campaign.
The most immediate campaign consequences came not for Vitter, who is up for reelection in 2010, but for GOP presidential front-runner Rudy Giuliani. Vitter’s endorsement of the ex-New York City mayor was intended to lend Giuliani conservative heft, but the Louisianan forced his candidate to dodge scandal yesterday in New Hampshire.
Giuliani said no decision has been made as to whether Vitter would continue as his Southern regional chairman.

And since Rudy likes to mention 9/11 every 30 seconds or so:

And there still is no good explanation for Giuliani's loyalty to Bernard Kerik, whom he recommended as head of the Homeland Security Department. Kerik has pleaded guilty to criminal charges for actions while he was police chief under the mayor.

Don't worry, there's always upstanding conservatives like Newt "Serves His Wife Divorce Papers During Chemo" Gingrich.

If I was stuck with the current crop of GOP candidates, I'd sit this one out. This will be an all-too-common sentiment in 15 months, especially if there are still 150,000 US troops in Iraq, and Alberto Gonzales is still the highest-ranking law official in the country.

Stay strong, sir. It's not your problem to defend these people. You deserve a lot better. We all do.
