Every time I see Thompson (like this morning on Fox News Sunday) he always looks basically bored and semi-disinterested. It’s like right before he goes on TV he sighs deeply and says “OK, let’s take about this stuff again.” His posture is odd, too as he seems to always be slightly slumping.

To me it is as if he is unable to translate the energy he has an actor into an asset during the campaign (unlike other actors-turned-politicians).
