The Real Reagan Republican
LAKE GENEVA, Wis. - Tommy Thompson cited a dead hearing aid and an urgent need to use the bathroom in explaining on Saturday why he said at a GOP presidential debate that an employer should be allowed to fire a gay worker.
Tommy said that he had the flu and bronchitis the day of the debate, but decided to participate anyway. He also "told party faithful at the[Wisconsin G.O.P. state] convention Saturday that he can still win." I'm sure Tommy's explanation will inspire confidence in his ability to lead the nation.
