Is Fred Flintstone for real?

Thompson: Due process for bin Laden - Yahoo! News

Fred Thompson has not made a grand entry into the political spotlight called "running for president."

He is doing quite the opposite.

First, he made a stupid statement about Osama bin Laden:
On Friday, Thompson told reporters in Iowa that bin Laden is "more symbolism than anything else" and said his presence in the "mountains of Pakistan or Afghanistan is not as important as there are probably al-Qaida operatives inside the United States of America."
Then, he "oopsed" it again:
Thompson also railed against same-sex marriage and judges whose rulings allow it. Thompson said the U.S. is a nation of laws, but judges "more often than not are the main violators of the rule of law." He said the "same-sex marriage business" is a "judicially created thing and needs to be addressed by a constitutional amendment." He was referring to an amendment that would limit the role of judges on the matter.
Can somebody tell me where the constitution even broaches the subject of marriage? And for that matter, what laws are on the books that talks about it, in any state? I know some states have passed laws in this regard, but what judges have broken those laws?

In any event, is Fred Thompson making any political movement? I think not. He sounds like all the other Republicans. Except for Rudy. Who sounds more like a girl.

Hell, show me a vociferous anti-sex fundamentalist of any religious or political bent -- be he Muslim, Christian, Jew, Mormon, Republican or other -- and I'll show you a slideshow of his secret nighttime fantasies so kinky and dark it would make Jenna Jameson shudder. And not in a good way.
