And yet another glowing Fred Thompson edorsement!

This time from Missouri's Lieutenant Governor:

Ronald Reagan did it, and one of Missouri's top elected officials believes Fred Thompson could also make the transition from actor to president.

Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, R-Cape Girardeau, was formerly associate publisher of the Southeast Missourian newspaper in Cape Girardeau. He gave up that post when he was running for lieutenant governor, a race he won in 2004.

Kinder wrote in the newspaper Sunday that he is supporting Thompson, 65, for president.

"Fred Thompson is the real deal, the closest thing to a natural we've had (or are likely to see) since Reagan," Kinder wrote.


Kinder cited Thompson's staunch conservatism, along with his potential mainstream appeal as an actor.

Thompson opposes abortion, gun control and gay marriage and supports President Bush's decision to increase troops in Iraq. He has said he would pardon former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby's conviction for perjury and obstruction of justice.

And the juggernaut rolls on...
