Fred Thompson's Announcement Announcement

From the official Friends of Fred Thompson, Inc. e-mail:

Dear Friends,

On September 6, 2007, Fred Thompson will be announcing his intention to run for President of the United States with a webcast available to millions at The launch of the video will be followed by a five-day campaign tour through Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.


So, when September 6th rolls around, are we all supposed to act surprised now? Because this e-mail kinda takes the wind out of the old sails a bit.

One thing is certain, his not being at the NH GOP debate at UNH the night before is gonna give his opponents something to talk about. There's been a lot of talk about how Thompson might have dragged out his "testing of the waters" a little too long. I'm still thinking he'll be OK, but he's got to come out throwing heat.

We'll see how this plays out.
