Let The Games End Comments (2)

The Iowa Caucuses would be far more interesting if they were run more like the Hunger Games.

Looking like Romney rather than Santorum pooped out in the end—less support now than four years ago even if he winds up eking out a win.

The "Iron Lady" wound up with a bad cast of rust.

Coming To Grips With Reality Comments (0)

Even right-wing Globe (November 28, 2011) has turned on Herman Cain, pronouncing him a liar via stress-detection tests on his statements about whether or not he groped those women. They say he shows clear signs of evading the truth. (Also easy to detect from him if you see his lips moving.)

"You Want A Job, Don't You?" Comments (0)

A fourth woman has now accused Herman Cain of not only sexual harassment, but of what sounds like sexual assault. Thankfully, he stopped when she told him to, but not before grabbing at her vagina up her skirt and trying to push her head into his crotch.

The woman is a registered Republican who was at a Tea Party gathering within the past few months. Not a liberal, oops.

Yes, We Cain Comments (1)

It seems clear that Herman Cain is outrageously anti-middle class...how else to explain his 19-9-9 plan where everyone pays more except for the ones making the most? Or his contention that the jobless darn well deserve to be that way? His debate performance last night probably had even Michele Bachmann rolling her eyes, or whatever she's able to do with them at this point.

It would be fun to tell the right-wingers who think people wouldn't support Obama to the extent they did and do if he weren't black that they're only supporting Herman Cain because HE'S black...but I suspect the retort would be, "Wrong! We support him in SPITE of that!"

Takes The Money To Run...And Runs Comments (0)

Herman Cain has taken about $100,000 of his campaign contributions and funneled it straight into his own for-profit company. I guess he really IS a serious contender for the Republican nomination.

Romney v. Romney Comments (1)

Mitt Romney now kowtows to the right by claiming he would support a Constitutional amendment stating that life begins at conception even though when he ran for the Senate in Massachusetts in '94 he was giving unabashed support to Roe v. Wade. "You won't see me wavering on that." Uh, yeah, right.

Once the right gets over its polygamous lust for a series of nutjobs (Bachmann's up! No, Trump! No, Perry! Now Cain!), it will settle on this hack, thinking him the best bet vs. Obama. And right now, he looks like the best bet vs. Obama. But he won't look like a good bet once it's one-on-one.

Galluping Away Comments (0)

A gentle reminder from Daily Kos that polls are almost meaningless this early on. (This is a lesson Trump, Cain,  Bachmann and Perry have already learned.)

GOP Field + Bachmann - Pawlenty = Romney/Pawlenty? Comments (1)

Strawcandidates_620x350Bye-bye, Tim!

Michele Bachmann, as expected, won the Ames Straw Poll in Iowa, becoming the first female to win—and in a state that has never elected a woman governor, senator or Congressional rep.

Your Country's Progress Toward Modernity Will Be Ruined In 30 Minutes Or Less—Guaranteed! Comments (3)

I love that Herman Cain is doing so well in polling early on for the Republican nomination—when Sen. Barack Obama ran for president, the right was apoplectic over his inexperience, yet one of the best-performing names for them in the polls now is a former pizza CEO???

Business experience is an interesting thing to have when it comes to the managerial aspect of the presidency, but America is NOT a business. It should not be run as a business.

Anyone who thinks Republicans are inherently racist and won't nominate a black guy is nuts. Even if many Republicans are racist (and hey, not a few Democrats are racist!), what's not to love about a guy who will push all the issues you care about? And doesn't it make him even more lovable if he's black, thereby proving to the left that you're not racist?

This guy is going to be a big player in '12, and would probably make an excellent VP pick to round out Romney's ticket if Romney decides against pulling in a woman.

Yes He Cain! Comments (5)

Pizza mogul Herman Cain is now running for prez, too. Some say Teabaggers won't vote for a black person, but I disagree—I think people who dislike black people would have no problem voting for a black person who's for everything they're for. Still, he's not widely known. I can't imagine anyone other than Romney getting the nomination, and yet that's harder and harder to imagine, too.
