Fred Thompson: Just Like George Washington!
Apparently Fred Thompson's website -- Fred and I or Sanford and Fred or The Courtship of Fred Thompson's Father or I'm With
Stupid Fred --has a little section where Fred compares himself to George Washington, the father of our country and first man ever to invoke Executive Privilege.
In the tradition of President George Washington, a leader Thompson had admired growing up, he walked away from an easy reelection victory to seek new challenges. He joined the American Enterprise Institute as a visiting scholar, traveled the country as speaker and served on a Wall Street advisory board.
While the New York Sun's Ryan Sager notes the ways that Fred differs from Washington (George never freed a slave until he died, Ryan, give Fred time), we decided to be a little more fair to the creepy old man and figure out how they're alike.
* Fake teeth
* Married way outta their league
* Probably blasted on rye whiskey 90% of the time
* Washington had secretary named "Thompson," Thompson fucks his secretary.
Uh... that's about all we got. You guys?
