Fred Thompson’s Double Demise
Fred Thompson once had a decent shot at the 2008 Presidential nomination before the erratic John McCain got his shit together. Before that, he was the senior Senator from Tennessee. Prior to that, he was a half-decent character actor, best know for his role as a District Attorney in the Law and Order franchise. Used to be a big-time pollie. Used to be a big-time actor. His demise feels like a double tragedy.
