Thompson to Moore: Mental Institution “Something You Ought to Think About”

ThompsonCigar in hand, Fred Thompson responded to Michael Moore’s debate challenge by pointing out his busy schedule — “I don’t think I have time for you” — and also noting that Fidel Castro had another documentary filmmaker locked up and given “devastating” electroshock treatments.

“A mental institution, Michael, it might be something you ought to think about,” Thompson says.

Moore’s website posts the video and the message, “Smoke ’em if you got ’em.” His letter to Thompson said, “While I will leave it up to the conservatives to debate your hypocrisy and the Treasury Department to determine whether the ‘box upon box of cigars’ violates the trade embargo, I hereby challenge you to a health care debate.”
