2008 Elections: Grandpa Fred Disappears

We'd like to say "bows out," or "steps down," but as you can see from the Raw Story report, he's about as lazy about the election as he is about real life. He just didn't bother to tell anyone anything, except for a brief press release. Pertinent snippet:
Within the open thread, hundreds of Thompson supporters urged the candidate to press on, while some bemoaned the lack of news coming out of the campaign.

"From having this site updated many times daily and the red truck for donations to a stagnant page for a few days now - somebody official needs to say something soon," wrote one commenter.

The campaign's information blackout followed rumors that Thompson was officially getting ready to bow out of the contest for the Republican nomination after his poor showing in South Carolina, a state that he identified as crucial to his path to the nomination.
So much for the "Reagan candidate." Or, as the inimitable Maru refers to him, "Sleepy McSleeperson."

This leaves John McCain, Mike Huckabee, and Mitt Romney. Because Rudi Ghouliani is tanking everywhere.
