A Thompson Convention Nomination?

Steven Stark lays out a scenario whereby all the other candidates, none of whom have wholehearted Republican support, cancel each other out, paving the way for Fred Thompson to receive the nomination at the convention.

"When conventions deadlock, history teaches us that yesterday's disappointments become tomorrow's stars. If McCain can't stampede to the nomination and Super Tuesday doesn't produce another clear front-runner, we may not have heard the last of Fred..."

I find the idea highly unlikely, though appealing...but stranger things have happened. Whoever would have thought the 2000 election wouldn't be decided for 36 days?

Blog trolls: I am reiterating something I posted months ago, just in case it didn't sink in: your posts are all being deleted unread.

There is no need to continue investing hours each week submitting notes which disappear as soon as they hit comment moderation.

One would have thought that by now you would have caught on that you are completely wasting your time.

We can only hope. In the mean time, Thompson supporters seem to be backing Romney in Florida. For some reason, Rick Santorum said it would be better if Thompson supporters backed Rudy in Florida. On top of everything the debate tonight was pretty bland. I was hoping for some fireworks to clear out some of the chaff.

What fun that would be, Laura, but I fear we're doomed to one of the current batch of variously boring and ordinary guys. Where are the statesmen when we need them?!
