Thompson To Shepherd Supreme Court Nominee

GLENEAGLES, Scotland -- From the venue of the G8 summit meeting, President Bush today appointed former Senator Fred Thompson (R-TN) to guide his as-yet-unnamed Supreme Court nominee through the confirmation hearing process. "I believe that Fred is the person most suited to perform this role", said Bush. "Fred was a U.S. Senator, so he knows his way around Capitol Hill. And he is also a first rate actor".

Mr. Thompson starred in a number of movies that are appropriately titled for his upcoming appointment, such as: "In the Line of Fire" and "Cape Fear". The target date for the completion of the nomination process is October, so Thompson's role in "The Hunt For Red October" is most appropriate indeed. Thompson is currently perfoming in a TV-series called "Law and Order"... which he will no doubt try to bring to the confirmation process. He also played roles in the following movies, each of which might well describe the confirmation process: "Feds", "Days of Thunder", "Bed of Lies", "No Way Out", and "Barbarians At The Gate".

Yeah, he's a pretty sharp guy for an actor, ehh? But then so was Reagan! (And there are a few others like Ron Silver, etc.) But what happened to all the rest of those left-leaning, liberal, looney (LLL) actors anyway?

You remember correctly...but Hawkeye® is right; most of the "glitterati" aren't qualified to have opinions.

camo,
Wow, a SAG member ehh? There seems to be no end to your resumé or accomplishments. Now I can tell all my friends I communicate regularly with a movie star!

Although I am in fact a card-carrying member of the Screen Actors Guild, I'm certainly no movie star. I've just worked as an extra (A.K.A. "moving scenery") on a dozen or so movies, and gotten a couple of jobs doing TV commercials. Nothing to justify quitting my regular job...

So YOU say... I won't tell my friends THAT... they wouldn't be as impressed as what I'm going to tell them (:D)

Regards,
