I said earlier that this week that Fred Thompson may be the first political candidate to truly understand the revolutionary changes brought by the internet to politics. Apparently so. Here’s Fred in his own words:
"By empowering individuals and building communities, the Internet provides a way of going around the inside-the-beltway crowd to reach people in numbers unheard of not that long ago."
"I believe this direct communication and discussion is going to have an enormous impact on our political process."
Fred wrote that in a letter to Pajamas Media. Earlier, he answered Michael Moore’s stunt on Breitbart.tv. After the first GOP debate he gave an interview, not to any of the networks who would have jumped at the chance to have him, but to Breitbart. He’s been blogging on RedState.
