What Does Fred Thompson Have Against Women?

We’re not political analysts or anything, but we’re going to take a wild guess and say that Republican Presidential Candidate Fred Thompson just lost a whole lot of potential votes. On Wednesday in Iowa, he said, “There is no woman on the horizon that ought to be president next year, let’s all agree on that.” Denouncing one woman would have been understandable – Hillary is the competition, after all, and sometimes you need to badmouth your opponents. But he didn’t even mention Hillary! Sure, she’s the only female with a fighting chance, but he kind of makes it seem like no woman will win, not next year, not ever. Fred, dear, it’s never wise to put down the group that makes up more than half of the U.S. electorate. [KGAN]
