Fred's gettin' serious

Rich Galen - fommer press secretary to Dan Quayle, when the former Vice President was a Congressman and a U.S. Senator; former communications director of the political office of Speaker Newt Gingrich; and former executive director of GOPAC - has signed on as a senior advisor to Fred Thompson's presidential exploratory committee.

From the mouth, er, keyboard, o' Galen:

"I am excited about working with Fred Thompson and the group which is gathering around him. I am looking forward to helping you peek behind the curtain (when it doesn't compromise any internal activities) to better understand what happens in a big-time Presidential campaign if and when Thompson becomes a candidate."

Whilst workin' for Fred, Galen promises to continue his popular mullings blog, but not as a campaign tool for Fred Thompson:

"I don't believe there is a conflict if I write about the Democrats' campaigns. Nor do I think there will be a problem writing about the 14%-approval-rated Congress as long as everyone understands that in all cases MULLINGS reflects my views alone and should not be considered to be an official (or unofficial) reflection of the Thompson operation."
