Surprised they noticed - and even more surprised they said a nice thing about him. I suppose the "Actor" label is all the liberals can come up with, but these guys do mention the time he spent as a "Staffer" (ahem, Watergate Chief Counsel folks!!). But hey, if a Conservative Republican can get a good word from the Denver Post editorial staff (usually very left), I'll take it.
And then there's Fred Thompson, the former congressional staffer and actor who became a U.S. senator and then went back to TV. He's being encouraged to run by Republicans who think he has "a blue-collar, pickup-truck appeal," as one report noted, that might lure independents and moderate Democrats.
Who knows? The last actor the Republicans nominated seemed to do OK.
