Fred Thompson Lambastes Obama ... We Think 

From Former Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) while speaking on a conference call with reporters lambasted Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) for being "a typical young liberal who did what was necessary to excel."

Thompson, who was joined by McCain senior foreign policy advisor Randy Scheunemann, joined in with Thompson in critiquing the senator from Illinois on his foreign policy. (Editor's Note: Huh? Seriously. Huh?)

The contention between the McCain and Obama campaigns came after the Supreme Courts 5-4 ruling that would give prisoners at Guantanamo Bay the right to challenge their detention in the American courts. While both McCain and Obama have pledged to close down Guantanamo Bay they differ on whether or not to conduct military tribunals.

Sen. Obama supports allowing the detainees to use the court system while Sen. McCain would like to see the tribunals resurrected ...

Okay, we've read Thompson's statement a dozen times and we still can't figure out what's wrong with being "a typical young liberal who did what was necessary to excel." Maybe you can figure it out.

More drivel here.
