Last night’s debate, although I missed watching it (I don’t have Fox News on my cable, and I just figured out late in the debate that I could watch it at the Fox News web site), I caught the now oft repeated clip of Fred banging Hucks head against the wall. My favorite part (as was BitHead’s) was:
â€œThatâ€™s not the model of the Reagan coalition, thatâ€™s the model of the Democratic Party,â€
Here’s the video:
As I’ve bounced around the blogs last night and this morning, it’s pretty clear that Fred stole the show (although I read one comment of disbelief that Ron Paul was still getting applause). This is a momentum that needs to continue. Fred’s campaign also reached it’s goal this morning of $550,000 (I think that was the number), and has now set their sights on $750,000 by midnight tonight (they’re at $648,000 at this writing). If you’d like to donate, click here . I’m personally convinced that Fred is the best conservative choice right now.
Fred now has the endorsement of Human Events , a weekly conservative periodical. William Lacy, Fred’s Campaign Manager, quotes this from the endorsement as key:
“We conclude that Thompson is a solid conservative whose judgment is grounded in our principles.”
The endorsement is well written and worth reading.
Update: (1/11 @ 7:00 PM Central) The Thompson campaign has exceeded the $750,000 revised goal they set this morning… they are at $755,000. Methinks they need to raise the bar a LOT higher!
Update: (1/12 @4:55 PM Central) Thompson has reached $848,000. Testing out You Tube… I hope the problem I had was my browser.
