As the primary season continues full speed ahead, despite summer vacations and the lowest congressional approval rating in a decade, some Americans seem to be actually paying attention. And those voters who know the names of the contenders are consistently choosing Senator Fred Thompson among their top three Republican favorites. Senator Thompson’s unofficial candidacy has sparked a dangerous new disease that is sweeping the nation’s Republicans: Premature Endorsement Syndrome.
Many of my Republican friends are now suffering from P.E.D. How do you recognize this condition? What are the symptoms? Are you experiencing Romney Regret? How about McCain Malaise? Or even worse, Rudy Reflux? Then you may be one of the many poor souls afflicted with P.E.D. Additional minor symptoms may include Huckabee Hiccups and Hunter Hyperactivity, both of which are treatable.
The good news about P.E.D. is that there is a sure-fire cure for this condition. Simply go to www.youtube.com and search for “Fred Thompson.” When you watch Senator Thompson’s video clips, including his video response to the debate challenge from Michael Moore, you will be instantly cured. I would also recommend reading his commentaries on www.abcradionetworks.com. Then go to www.imwithfred.com, and sign up. You will feel better immediately. You may even get the uncontrollable urge to light up a cigar.
Warning: This prescription may not work on those who have been stricken with the virulent Ron Paul strain of P.E.D. If you have endorsed Congressman Ron Paul for President, only time will help.
