Fred on Guns and Groveling

Fred Thompson, whose plain-spoken common sense positions get better every day, on the Bush Administration's silly filing on District of Columbia v. Heller, the big Second Amendent case:

As reported on RedState, Thompson accused the administration of "overlawyering" the case. After all, if an individual rights view of the Second Amendment does not proscribe an outright ban on handgun possession, there is not much left of the rights it purportedly protects.

That from a lawyer!!

As to kissing the flea-infested rear end of the King of Saudi Arabia, while asking 'pretty please' pump more oil:

Appealing to Saudi Arabia to encourage higher oil production to help lower prices is not in the long-term interest of the United States, Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson said on Wednesday.

“It’s not in the United States’ long-term interest to go hat in hand begging people to do things that in the end we know they’re not going to do,” Thompson said

May the farts of 10,000 camels fill your tent, Fahd!
