Fred as Inspiration

Wes Comer has an excellent post on how Fred Thompson (and Ronald Reagan before him) inspires him.

There is a nice comparison between our current President and our future President in the post.

With all apologies to Dean Witter, when Fred Thompson talks, people remember. Heck, I had a judge quote Fred Thompson to me during courtroom arguments just this morning!

Cynics like A.C. Kleinheider should note that one shouldn't underestimate the inspiration factor, particularly with the rudderless, leaderless attitude that Americans currently are experiencing.


Thanks for the link to Comer's sight. By the way, what did the judge say to you?
Brandon -

On Thursday, I was joining opposing counsel in arguing before Judge Bill Swann that crossing Orders of Protection in a particular case should be altered from no-contact to social contact orders. During the argument, Swann looks me square in the eyes and says, "I'm not sure this is where we want to go, counsel. As Fred Thompson said, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Not Fred's greatest quote, for sure, but it was quite effective. I was a bit stunned for a second.

But, of course, my client went away happy, the Order having been modified to allow social contact.

I saw on Hilltop Federalist that you are reading Robbins' "Secret of the Tomb." Let me know if you enjoyed it. I have been told many stories by sources in and around Skull & Bones, and I find the entire subject facinating.
