Big Thrill Kind of

As you can tell from the title. This is kind of a mixed bag. When I got this email announcing that Senator Fred Thompson of Tennessee. was a 'follower" I was a bit excited. Then I realized he must have some setting where he follows everybody that follows him. Take a look at the email below.

He is following more people than are following him. Oh well, get your jollies where you can get them.

If you still do not know who he is. Let's just say in 1990 he has a perfect storm.

Almost every blockbuster had him in it:

a) Die Harder

b) Days of Thunder

c) Hunt for Red October (video below)

Last year he was part of this list

* John McCain, U.S. Senator from Arizona
* Mike Huckabee, former Governor of Arkansas
* Mitt Romney, former Governor of Massachusetts
* Ron Paul, U.S. Representative from Texas
* Fred Thompson, former U.S. Senator from Tennessee
* Duncan Hunter, U.S. Representative from California
* Rudy Giuliani, former Mayor of New York City
* Alan Keyes, former U.S. Ambassador from Maryland
* Sam Brownback, U.S. Senator from Kansas
* Jim Gilmore, former Governor of Virginia
* Tom Tancredo, former U.S. Representative from Colorado
* Tommy Thompson, former Governor of Wisconsin

for Republican nominee for President.

What's the use getting worked up? Like he would really anybody's tweet, let alone mine.

Is that really his twitter account? So many fake celeb accounts these days. I guess he’s just following people so that people would follow him.

Fair concern Kat, all "celebs" that I follow. I either get from their webpages and such. Another good source is Twitter itself. How I got Fred Thompson's twitter was I followed John O'Connell , who is a celeb in his own right by my eyes anyway. He said what his tweet id was on the radio show he appears in (BS Report). Besides baseball he is a die hard Republican. I checked who he was following and saw Senator (or ex) Thompson. Among guys I follow, Weird AL is the real Weird Al. No doubt it. How sad is that ? , that I bought my first Weird Al record before many of my on line pals were born. Any question from you Kat is a good question. Thanks for reading.
