Fred Thompson Campaign: R.I.P.

Thompson's campaign was like a comet, it burned bright, it burned fast and it was gone in a flash. Well, maybe it didn't burn that bright...but its now definitely gone.

I don't think I have the patience to thoroughly evaluate his campaign's highlights, not that there were many, but I would like to note the loss of another fantastic spouse. We'll miss you Jeri!

Thompson in general, failed to gain enough momentum within the crowded GOP field and the loss in South Carolina sounded his death knell. Attempting to play the role of the Southern conservative, yet only able to round up 16% of the votes in South Carolina, meant the end to our favorite Actor-turned-policitian's campaign. (And by 'favorite' I mean, you know...behind Ronald Reagan, Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger, Jesse 'The Body' Ventura and George Clooney.)

So.... You need a new dark horse candidate?

Well, you're in luck. In Arizona, there are several dozen candidates to choose from due to a strange provision in the state's election law. To get on the primary ballot, you only needed to file an application.

If you visit ProjectWhiteHouse08.com, you can read (and watch!) the policies of all the dark-horse candidates, from the eye-patch-wearing Republican Sean "CF" Murphy to the ultra-lib, trash-talking, conceptual-artist Democrat Libby "Doctress Neutopia" Hubbard.

And all of them are competing in a "reality journalism" experiment for the Tucson Weekly's endorsement.

Tomorrow night's the official Project White House debate, which you can watch online through ProjectWhiteHouse08.com
