Fred Thompson’s Alter Ego

Posted on Sep 7, 2007
Vigo and Fred

Who’s who: one of these men is running for president.

As reader Ender points out, Fred Thompson bears a striking resemblance to Vigo the Carpathian (played by Wilhelm von Homburg) from the movie “Ghostbusters II,” a character who, coincidentally, also had delusions of grandeur.

Watch him in action:

Also look at the Creature from the Black Lagoon. A stunning similarity.

Thompsons years of acting and pretending to be somebody he’s not should have his fans wondering who is behind the facade.
He is simply another new-Bush, another mean spirited republican who thinks welfare is for the corporations, and that the working poor should not get a break!
This man is all about Fred Thompson…
This man has an EGO!!

This is amazing. I just mentioned the resemblance to someone over dinner the other night when we were reminiscing over old movies. Great minds.

And no vet240, we don’t need to dilute liberalism any further by having Paul team up with Kucinich. Right-Libertarians would only continue what Bush has started domestically. Lets get Kucinich nominated, then we can get Feingold on board as his running mate. It’s time we aim for a full-on revolution and not just be content with withdrawing from Iraq.

Here’s another one of the jokers that’s been living La dolce vita (the sweet life) for thirty years with his cohorts in DC.

After thrity years he’s now become the fix for all those problems he helped develope.

The best liars are the ones who can appear sooo sincere. What a crock fred!

I personally am sick of those who bring us lies on top of lies. If you people keep listening to candidates of this ilk, we are definitely doomed to continue as tax and spend pawns, and purveyers of wars for the rest of our lives.

Lets take the power back form the military/industrial complex and the multi-national corporations.

We need Ron Paul to team up with Kucinich to form a real third party (unlike LIEberman) and take the Government back for the people!
