Poor Grandpa Fred, he has no idea where he is or what he is doing. Thank god that trophy wife of his helps pull his puppet strings all day, or he might just sit in a chair all day demanding more go-carts on his pancakes. But now that they have trotted the zombie remains of Ronald Reagan out on the road and into the public sphere, let the gaffes begin!
Today Grandpa Fred was in Florida, where he signed autographs, and unfortunately talked to the cameras.
Thompson gives no opinion on Schiavo
By BRENDAN FARRINGTON
THE VILLAGES, Fla. – Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson gave no opinion Thursday when asked about efforts by President Bush and Congress to keep Terri Schiavo alive, saying he does not remember details of the right-to-die case that stirred national debate.
Thompson was asked in an interview for Bay News 9’s “Political Connections” program whether he thought Congress’ intervention to save the life of the brain-damaged woman two years ago was appropriate.
“I can’t pass judgment on it. I know that good people were doing what they thought was best,” Thompson said. “That’s going back in history. I don’t remember the details of it.”
Just one big problem with this not remember the case stuff:

The bombing death of a husband set to remove the feeding tube of his wife, who’s in a persistent vegetative state, focuses the investigation on the protesters.
Fred Dalton Thompson … D.A. Arthur Branch
So, not only can he not remember the details of the Terri Schiavo in real life, he can’t remember when he tried the case on TV.
Poor Grandpa, maybe it’s time just to call it a day before you show just how bad your memory has gotten. Or how stupid you are. Because there are people out there with photographic memories with access to Google, and your gaffes will be remembered as the comedy gold they are.
