Richard Brookhiser on Fred Thompson:

“Fred Thompson came to the offices of National Review some years when he was still in the Senate. I liked him fine. He has done nothing, anywhere, ever. The Hubble Telescope could not find what he has done, because he has not done it.”

What? Lobbying for an abortion rights group, and writing press releases for Jean Baptiste Aristide, the Haitian leftist demagogue, doesn’t count?

Ah yes, but what about his leadership role in helping get Scooter Libby’s legal bills paid? Surely that counts for something!
