Not in looks, but in attitude, Frederick reminds me a little bit of Sen. William Scott, Virginia's outrageously fool-like, one-term senator in the 1970s. The day before Nixon resigned in 1974, Scott sought out reporters to tell them he knew, from inside info, that Nixon would not cave in to the pressure and resign.
With Scott (1915-97) long gone, who better than Jeff "What, Me Worry?" Frederick, who appears quite prepared to be a fool for all seasons? At least, until the wise heads in the GOP make him go away.
On April Fools' Day, of all days, with this post, perhaps SLANTblog has set a new record for bipartisan agreement under its masthead.
