Someone finally woke Fred Thompson up long enough for him to quit the race. The man who was just this summer seen as a possible savior of conservative values for the Republican party maintained a spotty campaign schedule, raised little cash, and did little more than inject some occasional homespun asides and boilerplate conservative platitudes to the debates. The candidate who never was got out-Fred Thompsoned by a weird little governor from Arkansas.
Adios, Fred. Your jammies are ready.
