Seems that somehow, as a young lawyer, he became the republican counsel on the Watergate committee hearings. He was kinda like the republican Sam Dash, except that we saw Sam Dash in action and you sir, were no Sam Dash.
Young Fred soon began conspiring with the White House low lifes to discredit witnesses, especially John Dean. Seems the Nixon captains regularly fed him dirt on each of the witnesses. . . . especially John Dean. Of course, the tactics were a dismal failure and young Fed Thompson crawled back under the rock he came out of (only to emerge later as a big ugly Hollywood character actor).
The really funny part of all this is that Nixon repeatedly commented to his aides that "this guy isn't too bright, is he?" Really, it's all on tape.
Let's face it folks, here we have a guy with the brains of Moron Monkey Boy; Bush the Chimp, the phoney shallow Hollywood bullshit personality of Ronald Raygun and the low life bottom feeding ethics of Richard Nixon. I suspect he will be their man and they'll be proud.
I still say my flock of turkeys would make the best president.
