Smoke 'em if ya got 'em

You know, those smoking bans in bars and restaurants also help explain why freedom-loving Americans have bolted to the Cuban side. They smoke a lot of cigars, you know.

As insane as Fred Thompson's comments in Iowa were, they weren't as strange as this quote from the Daily News:

Thompson received mixed reviews from several listeners who had reservations about his late entry into the race.
Really? It's a late entry? We consider four months before the first primary early now? Considering that Senator Fred's been campaigning off the books for months now - safely too, he hasn't allowed himself to be humiliated in a debate yet - I'm not sure I'd call this "late".
