Doink Doink: Fred Thompson stealing Maher and Colbert's jokes?

Doink doink. It appears as though conservative radio host and former Law & Order D.A. Fred Thompson (also a former Senator) has been caught red-handed stealing jokes. Jack McCoy would not be happy.

As Tina Dupuy notes on Mediabistro's Fishbowl LA blog, it appears that Thompson, “has the joke ethics of Carlos Mencia.” She writes:

On Real Time's season finale last week Bill Maher said, “The only silver lining I can find is that British accents aren't sexy anymore.”

Fred's tweet, “Getting BP's CEO to testify at a Congressional hearing DID accomplish one thing: British accents are no longer sexy #ftrs #tcot”

Then a couple minutes later, another lift. Fred tweets, “The only way Obama's speech could have been any worse is if there were people in the background blowing into vuvuzelas. #ftrs #tcot

And of course, Stephen Colbert did a bit last night with vuvuzeles over the President's speech.
