Spread That Meme!

I had to laugh out loud when I read this on LRC:

“Boston Herald: Ron Paul Is ‘Genuine and Optimistic’
“Posted by Lew Rockwell at July 9, 2007 12:40 PM

“Unlike Thompson the thespian and Romney the dog-abuser. Here‘s the paper’s report (and thanks to Peter Collins).”

Lew has such a way with words. The Boston Herald piece he links to starts out with the phrase “GOP thespian,” and this, it seems to me, is a meme that ought to be spread far and wide. Thompson is a thespian. That, along with another bit of news discussed in the Herald—that the Thespian worked as a lobbyist for an abortion rights group—could be enough to sink his campaign before it gets started.  His campaign is denying it, by the way, and the Thespian says he “can’t recall.” This is one thespian who’s not quite ready for political prime time: doesn’t he know that the cover-up is worse than the crime?
