It has the tonal quality of something being dropped on the floor, something heavy and damp-ish, the Post jests, drawing a comparison between the former Tennessee Senators name and a waterlogged paper towel.
However, taking into account the bevy of youthful beauties the former Law & Order star has kept company with over the years, and the bleary-eyed tribute theyve been paying him lately, this analysis of Thompsons name does raise one interesting question: does Fred Thompson, despite his stodgy name, have sex appeal?
Is there something about the craggy actor were not getting? asks the Post in rhetorical frustration, attempting to come to terms with this puzzling curiosity. We are trying to understand. We are willing to admit that some people find Fred Thompson, yes, sexy. But we still cannot understand what that means.
