Fred Thompson, the Actor turned Politician



Fred Thompson, the actor turned politician, recounted the harrowing story of John McCain’s captivity as a Vietnam prisoner of war to tout the presidential candidate at the Republican National Convention and criticized Democrat Barack Obama’s support for abortion rights.
“Now, being a POW certainly doesn’t qualify anyone to be president,” Thompson said Tuesday as images of McCain flashed behind him on a giant screen. “But it does reveal character.”
Thompson went into excruciating detail describing McCain’s 5 1/2 years in captivity in a Hanoi prison, describing how the Arizona senator’s captors cracked his ribs and broke his teeth off at the gums. He also described how McCain refused to go home when his captors offered to release him for propaganda purposes.
“We hear a lot of talk about hope these days,” Thompson said, a clear reference to one of Obama’s campaign themes. “John McCain knows about hope. That’s all he had.”
Fred Thomson also used his speech to denounce Obama for declining to say when human life begins, although Thompson’s own record on abortion is mixed.
“We need a president who doesn’t think that the protection of the unborn or a newly born baby is above his pay grade,” Thompson said.

The comment was a clear reference to an answer that Obama gave at a forum at California’s Saddleback Church sponsored by the popular evangelical pastor Rick Warren. On a question referring to the number of abortions in the country, Warren asked Obama at what point he believed babies had human rights.
“Well, you know, I think that whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade,” the Illinois senator replied.

On the Richter scale of Internet search energy, Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s announcement on Friday that he had chosen Sarah Palin, the current Governor of Alaska, as his running mate measured a magnitude 10. If you compare the number of searches for “John McCain,” “Barack Obama” or “Joe Biden” to those for “Sarah Palin,” there’s no contest. In just two days, the number of U.S. Internet searches for “Sarah Palin” reached a peak greater than any other political personality in the last three years. In the week ending Aug. 30, 2008, searches for Gov. Palin were almost four times as popular as Obama searches, eight times as popular as McCain searches and over 10 times more popular than searches for Biden.
