ImWithFred And So Is She

GOP Presidential Candidate Fred Thompson has scored the support of an important demographic: his ex-girlfriends. Ordinarily this might be a minor victory, but Thompson's list of former paramours reads like a "Women of the Republican Party" calendar.

Ex-No. 1: Country singer Lorrie Morgan called Fred, "every woman's fantasy." Morgan thinks Thompson has a great chance of cornering the women's vote because, "He’s a soft, safe place to be and that could be Fred’s ticket. Women love a soft place to lay and a strong pair of hands to hold us.”

[On a side note, I'm starting to understand every day, a little more, why the women of the USA aren't supporting Hillary.]

Ex-No. 2: 1st Wife Sarah Knestrick. Knestrick married Thompson at 17 and divorced him 26 years later. I believe this is called a "Starter Wife." Ms. Knestrick holds no grudge though, as she intends to campaign for him.

Ex-No. 3: Georgette Mosbacher, who seems like one heinous bitch; she's the author of "Feminine Force," and co-chairman of McCain's 2000 Presidential campaign. Ms. Mosbacher likes Fred's ability to appeal to “traditional women who will like the Southern gentleman in him."

More Fred Exes

Thompson also has a few other famous exes, who may or may not vote for him:

Ex-No. 4: KellyAnne Conway (nee Fitzpatrick). Conway, a GOP pollster and regular on the talking head circuit, founded the polling company, inc..

Ex-No. 5: Time magazine and Bloomberg News columnist Margaret Carlson. Carlson is by far the intellectual's choice of Thompson's exes - extremely accomplished, bookish, and not a GOP hack.

Ex-No. 6: Nathan's heiress and journalist Carol Joynt. Joynt hosts a weekly political talk show from Nathan's called the Q&A Cafe. Joynt is also the author of Innocent Spouse, "A Story of Love, Death and Taxes." The book is available at Barnes & Noble for free on the Nathan's Restaurant web site.

Update 2/24: See comments below; Ms. Joynt [?] has questioned this characterization.


And of course, we could not forget Jeri Kehn, Thompson's current wife who, as we've noted before, is quite bangin'. [Seen below on Fred's arm, and here having her dress fixed by her husband while getting friendly with a dapper Paul Wolfowitz.]
