An Ol’ Broad’s Ramblings

Taking Issue with Frist

Filed under: 2008 — olbroad @ 2:18

I get the occasional email from Volpac. Today, I received one talking about the possible Fred Thompson candidacy and how the ‘new media’ is important.

All well and good, but I have to take serious issue with the first point Sen. Frist made:

1. First, Fred Thompson is continuing his “front porch” conversations. For sometime now he has been speaking directly to Americans and wisely relying upon the New Media to get his message out. His ABC radio podcasts are downloaded everyday and linked to by many popular, conservative blogs including: Red State, Wizbang, Pajamas Media, etc. Since I began blogging and podcasting almost two years ago, I know how powerful a medium the New Media is and how effective this type of outreach can be.

Now granted, the blogs listed are in the national spotlight, however, he missed one real important supporter? How ’bout Pete’s got a separate page completely dedicated to all things Fred. What’s up with that, Mr. Frist!


Oh, and I’m none to crazy about that “front porch” thing.  John Kerry had events of a similar nature, or at least called something similar, and you see what good it did him.  (heh heh heh)  Of course, Fred’s idea of a front porch, and Kerry’s idea, are no doubt completely different.



  1. Exactly, see my article on what Fred needs to do vs. what he thinks he needs to do “What’s a Fred to do?”

  3. shhhhh….. I ain’t sweet…I’m an ol’ broad with a bad attitude. 🙂

    I’m guessing since you are typing, you’re ok? That’s the most important thing, right? 🙂

    Darn! If I hadn’t gone ahead and put the sticker on my car, I could have sent it back to ya. Hmmm….. tell ya what…. if I come across a cool one (not the ones they are offering online, they’re ugly 🙂 ) I’ll get it to ya. I’ll ask around when I’m in TN next week.
