Fred Thompson Joins the Blogosphere

Senator Fred Thompson is blogging at Redstate.

Thompson on the "Pirates of Tehran":

"To misrepresent unpunished piracy as a victory is as Orwellian as the congressional mandate banning use of the term 'the global war on terror.' What are we — Reuters?"

The whole piece is a great read. Thompson clearly "gets it" -- whether we're talking about the War on Terror or using the Internet to reach an interested public.

Update: Quick reaction from Kathryn Jean Lopez and Ed Morrissey.

Lopez: "If after reading that 'Pirates of Tehran' blog post and FDT commentary like it, if the right-blogosphere readers could election [sic] a president RIGHT NOW I wonder if Fred Thompson's straight talk might just win him the election."

Morrissey: "Read all of Thompson's post, and ask yourself this: could he have picked a better way to enter the race, as far as the conservative blogosphere is concerned? If Thompson really still had not made the decision to throw his hat in the ring, he would not bother posting at Redstate. It's not a one-off by a Hollywood star, because Redstate is not the Huffington Post. This is a clear indication that he has heard the calls from conservatives and will shortly start working on an exploratory committee."

Hey, I think it's great Fred's blogging. What's wrong with blogging?

I think it will be even better if he blogs as President of the United States.
