Fred Thompson to keep convicted cocaine dealer as top campaign aide

Now that takes some chutzpah. Even for a Democrat, keeping a convicted drug dealer – a cocaine dealer in fact – as a top campaign aide, would be death. But for a Republican? What is Thompson snorting? Seriously, what an incredibly stupid, amateur decision for Thompson to decide keep this guy as a top fundraiser. Perhaps my favorite line from the article: “The campaign has no reason to suspect there is any problem with the money Martin has raised, she said.” Um, how about BECAUSE HE’S A FREAKING CONVICTED DRUG DEALER? And I thought Obama wasn’t ready for prime time. Geez, Thompson makes Obama look like Machiavelli.
