I know he’s the real winner, but isn’t fourth place for John McCain kind of pathetic? Conversely, left-for-dead Fred Thompson turns out to still have some residual support. And why not?

If his staff can somehow resuscitate their candidate, I think there’s clearly a market among the Republican faithful for what Thompson would be selling were he not too lazy to sell it.
