Fred Thompson quits presidential race - Yahoo! News
File this under "historical inevitability": former Senator Fred "but, but, but you liked me on Law & Order, didn't you...?" Thompson dropped out of the race after finishing behind the GOP front-runners, the GOP also-rans, the GOP losers, Rex the Wonder Horse, and Amanda Hugginkiss in early primary and caucus voting.
In bowing out, Fred said, "Today, I have withdrawn my candidacy for president of the United States. I hope that my country and my party have benefited from our having made this effort."
I'm sure he meant that in a way that didn't sound like he thought the hopes and dreams of the republic rose and set on his ass.
