And This Guy is supposed to be the last great hope for the Republican Party?
Fred Thompson, a potential Republican presidential candidate, suggested that the 1986 immigration law signed by President Reagan is to blame for the country's illegal immigrants, and he bemoaned a nation beset by "suicidal maniacs."
"Twelve million illegal immigrants later, we are now living in a nation that is beset by people who are suicidal maniacs and want to kill countless innocent men,
women and children around the world," the former Tennessee senator said. "We're sitting here now with essentially open borders."
He made the comments Thursday night as he discussed the 1986 immigration reform bill and the Senate's current legislation to overhaul the immigration system during a speech at the annual Prescott Bush Awards Dinner in Stamford, Conn.

You would have thought that Thompson would have at least extended a professional courtesy and not criticized a fellow B-movie actor....but then again that's what happens when actors go off-script and start to ad lib ... sometimes they say whatever pops into their heads, no matter how stupid it is.
