Fred Thompson: "Zzzzzzzzzzzz....."

GOP savior and heir to the mantle of Saint Ronnie of Reagan couldn't care less about the American people, and wish they would stay the hell off of his lawn --

Fred Thompson said Saturday he's not consumed with winning the White House and that a president with too much fire in the belly is not necessarily a good thing.

"I like to say that I'm only consumed by very, very few things and politics is not one of them," Thompson yawned at a town hall meeting in Burlington's Sealy showroom. "[I]f people really want in their president a super type-A personality, someone who has gotten up every morning and gone to bed every night thinking about for years how they could achieve the presidency of the United States, someone who could look you straight in the eye and say they enjoy every minute of campaigning — I ain't that guy."

"I'm not particularly interested in running for president."

He said others encouraged him to run and he decided it was the right thing to do, especially when his favorite recliner went on the fritz and he had nothing else to do while waiting for the repairs to be done.

Above: the candidate wonders how soon he can shitcan this campaign stop and go back to his hotel for a nap.
