Thompson Characters Zestier Than Fred

Fred Thompson earned kudos yesterday for an uncharacteristically high-voltage performance Monday night in front of the New York Conservative Party. While the video on National Review Online
does indeed show flashes of vigor that have thus far not been associated with folksy Fred’s late-comer campaign, Radar notes a stage-pacing similarity with the above clip of a younger, chubbier Thompson bringin’ it on TV’s Wiseguy with a multi-thread tirade against the Jews, illegal immigrants, and “the Asiatics.” Content specifics aside, we think it better showcases the full range of Thompson’s skills as a crowd-pleasin’ tub-thumper.
