Tommy Thompson's Excuses

Republican Presidential candidate Tommy Thompson says he was distracted during a debate question about civil rights for gays. He answered that firing gays should be left up to the business owner. He's since backtracked and says there were a lot of things distracting him from the question at the time:
  • A dead hearing aid
  • An urgent need to use the bathroom
  • A case of the flu
  • Oh, and bronchitis, too
  • Just got out of a hospital emergency room three days prior to the May 3 debate
No word on if his dog ate his talking points. (Pawtucket Times)
