I have been at home in the late afternoon the last couple of days watching TV as I exercise. I don’t really care for either activity but they go well together. The last two days I have seen this commercial while I was walking on the tread mill.

That is Fred Thompson. You may recall him as a State Department Official, U.S. Senator from Tennessee and even an actor on Law & Order. And just in case you forgot, he was in the field of Republican candidates vying for the Presidential nomination in 2008.To be honest,  I am all for free enterprise but it just seems a tad bit sleazy to me that a guy who was a candidate for our country’s highest office is now hawking reverse mortgages on television. I guess I sound a bit like Andy Rooney… but it’s just not right!
