The ladies love Fred Thompson
Law & Order actor and former senator Fred Thompson hasn't officially announced he's running for president, but based on opinion polls, people seem to like him.
The man who played D.A. Arthur Branch on the Law and Order franchise is also being endorsed by his ex-wife and former girlfriends.
Lorrie Morgan, a country music singer whom Fred dated, said, "women love a soft place to lay and a strong pair of hands to hold us."
First of all, I think it's great that Freddy Fred knows how to treat a lady. I'm someone who could use a few lessons in treating women right, since the last two I dated got loose from their chains, ran into the road, and were both hit by a garbage truck. Also, you have to feed them every day, which is sometimes easy to forget.
I was going to suggest that being a cuddly teddy bear of a man doesn't make you capable of leading the country, but perhaps I'm wrong. Maybe Thompson could win by simply looking into the camera and addressing all the women in the country:
Hello, ladies. My name is Fred, and I'm gonna be there for you night and day. When the terrorist come knock knock knockin' at the door, you just crawl into my arms, close your eyes, and I'll make you forget all about your troubles. Fragrant bathbeads and diamond rings for all the ladies, that's my promise. Ah yeah.
Then he steps from behind the lectern and does a little soft shoe to a Barry White ballad. The next day, he's leading the free world.
