Fred Dalton Thompson (born Freddie Dalton Thompson; August 19, 1942 – November 1, 2015) was an American actor and a Republican. Therefore, among true-believers in the Republican Party, he is also Ronald Reagan and Peanut Butter. In 2007, he announced that he was considering running for president in 2008, a move which critics believe is unconstitutional since he already served two terms as Ronald Reagan.
Law and Order
Thompson played the role of president of the United States once before, on the television show Law and Order. Thompson played the slow, almost retarded President Arthur Branch, and he gained a reputation as a slow, almost retarded man who can recite folksy sayings. Critics praised his performance and the concept of a retarded president in general. "Retarded people are so discrimated against in our society," wrote the New York Times, "that it is about time one was represented in the highest office of the land." Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took issue with that statement, claiming her husband was the first retarded president. Fellow presidential candiade Tommy Thompson also then claimed to be retarded, and backed up his claim with documentation.
Slowest Man on Earth
Fred Thompson has broken many records for being the slowest man on the face of the earth. He first announced his ambition to be president in 1949. He has been an unofficial candidate ever since, challenging Dwight Eisenhower, Mao Zedong, Richard Nixon, Barry Goldwater, Gerald Ford, George H. W. Bush, Bob Dole, and George W. Bush in their respective primary battles.
