Washington (AP) -- Fred Thompson plays a district attorney on TV and, in real life, a commentator on the internet.
In recent weeks, the Former Tennessee Senator has used conservative web sites to opine about tax cuts, the Virginia Tech shootings, even the NFL Draft.
Thompson's two roles give him plenty of visibility while he is considering a run for the Republican nomination.
The actor-politician had experimented with blogging, posting two- and three-sentence thoughts on the web site for ABC News Radio, for whom he is a host and commentator.
But not until several weeks ago, after declaring an interest in the presidency, did he start weighing-in in earnest.
Now his opinion columns are appearing on Redstate.com, the pajamas media blog, national review online and his own blog, The Fred Thompson Report.
Several other conservative web sites have picked up the commentaries.
