Fred Thompson to Announce by Video

Non candidate Fred Thompson has changed his mind again. Indecisive Freddy has now 'decided' to take Newt Gingrich's advice and make his announcement by video, reports Bob Novak.

But don't hold your breath.

Previously, Lazy Fred was going to announce in early July, or . . . in late July, or on September 3rd, or on September 5th at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, or in his hometown of Lawrenceburg, Tennessee.

Folks in the very small town of Lawrenceburg are convinced that Thompson will make his announcement there, and so the very small town is spending a small fortune to get ready for Freddy, just in case.

One big advantage of announcing via YouTube is that you can take lots of breaks until you get it right, and, of course, you can announce in Lazy Fred's preferred position: sitting down.
