Fred Thompson; "Dumb As Hell!"

Apparently, Nixon didn't think too highly of Fred Thompson. Sure we can go to the archive ourselves and find the out takes, if you like. But here's a snip or two:

Nixon was disappointed with the selection of Thompson, whom he called "dumb as hell." The president did not think Thompson was skilled enough to interrogate unfriendly witnesses and would be outsmarted by the committee's Democratic counsel...

..."Fred (Thompson) and Baker carried water for the White House, but I have to give them credit — they were watching out for their interests, too," Kutler said. "They weren't going to mindlessly go down the tubes for this guy.
Nice GOP contender, eh?

To quote former Senator Thompson from one of my favorite films, "This will get out of control, and we'll be lucky to live through it."
