King Assails Thompson, Boosts Rudy, Sounds Stupid in Process

Former Senator and current Actor Fred Thompson is poised to enter the 2008 presidential race. Our dear Peter defends his boy Rudy by saying "Rudy had 9/11, and Fred .Thompson had 'Law & Order."
Yes Peter, keep using 9/11 for Rudy. Keep using it because the more you highlight it, the worse its gonna be for Guiliani.
From the lack of upgraded radios for the FDNY to insisting on the Office of Emergency Management Command Center be located high in the sky at the Trade enter site, Rudy has a poor 9/11 record.
9/11 groups are getting ready to beat the crap out of Rudy. This is from Jim Riches, a deputy chief with the FDNY who lost his son on 9/11... “We have all the UFA, the UFOA, and the fire members are all behind us -- the International Association of Fire Fighters.... And we’re going to be out there today to let everybody know that he’s not the hero that he says he is.”

“If somebody can tell me what he did on 9/11 that was so good, I’d love to hear it. All he did was give information on the TV”
“He did nothing... He stood there with a TV reporter and told everyone what was going on. And he got it from everybody else down at the site.”

Not that I'm a fan of Thomspon but he does have a resume beyond his acting...
- Assistant US Attorney from 1969 to 1972

- Co-chief counsel to the Senate Watergate Committee
- US Senator

King is just doing what he always does, opens his mouth just to hear himself speak.

Will "The Nanny" Take on King?

And I bet she knows more about international affairs than King does....

From the NY Daily News:

"Appearing tomorrow afternoon at the North-Shore LIJ Cancer Center, the liberal-leaning actress will give a keynote lecture about her 2000 diagnosis with uterine cancer and her successful struggle against the disease.

But her appearance in front of a positive audience on Long Island fueled speculation she might also announce a run against Republican Rep. Peter King.

"If she's going in 2008 and she's going after King's seat, you do it at an event in King's district," said Baruch College Prof. Doug Muzzio, a political expert. "You declare war on enemy turf."

Drescher denied the possibility of such an announcement, even if she has thought about having a career in Washington down the line.

"If I had my druthers, I'd rather be a senator" than a representative, she said. "But that doesn't mean that's necessarily where I'd start."
