Why I Don't Subscribe and Only Read the Sports Pages

Looks like the L.A. Times is set to run a hit piece on Fred Thompson by linking him with a pro-abortion organization that he might have done some lobbying for back in 1991. This, of course, was before Thompson was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1994, where he accumulated a 100 percent voting record on life issues and was listed as an "enemy" by Planned Parenthood.

If the L.A. Times hit piece was a complaint in a lawsuit, it would be so demurred.

Before we get on Fred's case, we should demand that the "family planning" group (an organization full of donors to Sen. Clinton's campaign, btw) and the LA Tlimes (with its rather spotty record for accuracy) produce some billing records.

Otherwise, it's just another drive-by media hit piece done for the Clintons against one of their political opponents. I lived in Arkansas for 20 years, and I've the results of their handiwork.

Let's see the billing records.

I wasn't being critical of Fred. As I mentioned in my post, if the LA Times piece was a complaint in a lawsuit, it would be demurred. In layman's terms, a demurrer is basically the equivalent of saying "so what?" So what if Thompson in 1991 or so might have lobbied for a pro-abortion group? Fact of the matter is, while Thompson served as a U.S. Senator from 1994-2002, he had a 100 percent pro-life voting record and was listed as an "enemy" by Planned Parenthood. Therefore, the LA Times piece about Thompson, even if it's all true, is effectively meaningless.
