How Do You Say “Oops” in Español

Fred Thompson, the Great White Hope yet undeclared presidential hopeful, put his big fat foot in his big fat mouth accidentally said what he really thinks said in a speech in South Carolina on Wednesday (from Media Matters):

We’re catching, over a period of years, thousands of illegal immigrants coming from southern borders that are non-fence-able. Many of them come from terrorist-related states. We were just talking earlier, and I remember the figure that stuck out to me — in the year 2005, we apprehended over 1,000 folks that originally has come from Cuba. If they’re coming from Cuba, where else are they coming from? And I don’t imagine they’re coming here to bring greetings from Castro. We’re living in the era of the suitcase bomb.

Geesh. Not only does he insult an entire group of people, but he uses really crappy grammar in doing so. “Folks that originally has come?” Fred’s taking grammar lessons from Chimpy! No Rethuglican Left Behind program perhaps?

    They will morph again, from chickenshit chickenhawks to Chicken Little. “The sky is falling!!!”, the suitcase bomb Cubans are out to get us. First, I wondered why people were not highly insulted that the government and those seeking office, would treat them like such fools. Then, I started talking to more people and became very sad.

    Also, I don’t want this jerk to run, because my son’s name is Fred and it would cause me to be conflicted. I freely admit that it is very selfish of me but, there it is.

    poor fotc. no worries though. just because chimpy is in office, that doesn’t mean we can’t love (and drool) over george clooney! that said, i am not sure if i want him to run or not. i think that he may be an easy target. he was a lousy actor, like reagan, so that might work in his favor. however, he was a do-nothing one-term senator. that will not sit well with those rethugs who are seriously disturbed by the present moron in the white house. he was a lobbyist for wonderful causes, such as asbestos (he was for it!!). even if he was a lobbyist for good causes, just the word makes a lot of people cringe. he is also married to someone who looks and dresses like brittney spears. that won’t sit well with the fundies.

    You are correct, nonnie. I just wish he had a different name. Poor Fred used to get called Freddie Kruger in grammar school. That damn movie came out shortly after he was born.
    I had named him after Fred Mertz, a hero of mine, ah well, the best laid plans…..
