Nixon On Fred Thompson "Dumb As Hell, But Friendly"

GreenMountainPolitics1 is a Fred Thompson Free Zone.

We don't "do" nonsense candidates.

But Jake Tapper of ABC News has such a great little piece up today about Thompson's (much self touted) role during the Watergate Hearings that we simply could not resist.

Our favorite graph -
Moreover, new transcripts from the Nixon White House tapes reveal that the Nixon administration regarded Thompson as a useful idiot -- "dumb as hell," in President Nixon's words, but "friendly."
You can't beat that with a stick!

Although Team Thompson would probably like to open up Nixon's grave and try.
