Everything Fred Thompson: the Fredipedia

Updated June 1, 2007: The old feeder has decided to endorse Fred Thompson as the Republican Party nomination for US President in 2008. Please visit some of these web sites and blogs. Get to know Fred. Then let Fred know you want him to throw his hat in the ring. Wouldn't you really rather see Fred and Jeri in the White House?
The old feeder is getting to the point where he might consider cutting a check to help Fred Thompson's unannounced campaign for the Republican Party's 2008 presidential nomination. You should know that the last time this tightwad gave any money to a political campaign was a donation to Ronald Reagan sometime after he narrowly lost the Republican nomination to Ford in 1976. I figured Jimmy Carter was making my money worthless anyhow, so why not give it away?

I have taken the liberty of copying in full this nifty list of sources for information on Fred Thompson and added some other stuff. You can find the Original, Definitive Fredipedia by Sturm Ruger, along with some well reasoned discussions at DraftFredThompson.com. It is a big improvement over the Fred & Jeri links Plains Feeder posted earlier.
