Mitt Romney’s consultants think Fred Thompson is a “phoney” conservative. How ironic.
The Web site, PhoneyFred.org, had opened with the line: “Phoney Fred. Acting like a conservative.” It was taken down on Monday after inquiries by The Washington Post newspaper, which found links between the site and Warren Tompkins, a South Carolina political consultant hired by Romney.
And of course the thoroughly unphoney Mitt Romney’s campaign denies any involvement:
The site has no direct affiliation to our campaign, and we had no knowledge of its development.
Sure. No direct affiliation.
I think Romney’d be better off with the “I look more like a movie star than Fred Thompson” approach, if he must violate the 11th Commandment.
