It’s Alive

The biggest news out of the South Carolina Republican debate last night was that Fred Thompson woke up, called Mike Huckabee a “liberal,” and got the “I’m With Fred” bloggers all twitterpated.

Oh, and he got off a couple of droll one-liners:

Asked about the United States response in a confrontation with Iranian speedboats, Mr. Thompson said, “I think one more step and they would have been introduced to those virgins that they’re looking forward to seeing.”

Ba dum bum.

Update: Mike Huckabee comes back with some helpful advice for Fred Thompson.

I guess that’s the Baptist way of saying, “You’re full of shit, Fred.”

H/T to TPM.
