Not to turn this into a one-liner heavy, libertarian/gay-friendly version of The Corner, but to offer my two sense on Eric's post about Charlatans, I'd absolutely rather vote for Fred Thompson than Mitt Romney.  Fred Thompson may have a bit of a conjured image and a thin record, but I don't believe that he was 100% produced in a factory, specifically for consumption by whatever conservative Republican primary voters  don't have access to Google, the ability to distinguish between black and white, or a memory that extends beyond two weeks ago.
