Fred Thompson is Doing Maher and Colbert Jokes on His Twitter Account

070402_fredthompson.jpgFred Thompson, the William Hung of the 2008 election season, is an actor who was a senator. He already has the looks of Strom Thurmond and the wit of Sarah Palin. And now he has the joke ethics of Carlos Mencia (or Robin Williams take your pick).

On Real Time’s season finale last week Bill Maher said, “The only silver lining I can find is that British accents aren’t sexy anymore.”

Fred’s tweet, “Getting BP’s CEO to testify at a Congressional hearing DID accomplish one thing: British accents are no longer sexy #ftrs #tcot”

Then a couple minutes later, another lift. Fred tweets, “The only way Obama’s speech could have been any worse is if there were people in the background blowing into vuvuzelas. #ftrs #tcot

And of course, Stephen Colbert did a bit last night with vuvuzeles over the President’s speech.

You know what? Fred Thompson isn’t funny. We follow him on Twitter, we should know. He’s the dullest person you’ve ever heard of. So “parallel thinking” is highly unlikely. You know what’s even less funny than not being funny? Plagiarizing. Stealing. Ripping off other’s material without attribution.

Oh and he also tweeted he’ll be on the Daily Show tonight. We bet he has some gems lined up.
