All Aboard the Cain Train!

This article stirred my brain this morning. Yes, it's true, there are some brains in there contrary to popular belief.

First off, the author states, "Republican and Democratic voters are motivated by ideology, but in the case of Democrats, race...is an integral part of their ideological equation." Thank you for stating what we have known for many many years; the Democrat Party is the real party of racism and bigotry. From the party's roots to today, nothing has changed, except that today's Democrats are also borderline flat-out communists.

I disagree with the author's premise that Cain's skin color has propelled him to prominence in the Republican presidential candidate field. Maybe to some degree but I think most of us would agree that Cain's primary appeal is his straightforward persona. He has an impressive background and is proposing real solutions to some very serious problems facing us today. He also has no political experience, which is attractive to millions of Americans, but the author makes no mention of this. In short, I think political analysts are completely missing the point: Americans are sick and tired of Washington, DC and we're going to do something about it. Herman Cain represents how we feel about the situation and the "experts" and "political pundits" and "talking heads" just don't fucking get it.

As far as these sexual harassment allegations go, I personally believe that Herman Cain is the victim of cheap harassment charges (akin to how cheap charges of racism are today), and I think he is having a difficult time trying to convey that. I also believe he is having difficulty navigating around this supposed gag order which, in my opinion, should be lifted so we can see what's really going on. Whatever the case may be, in no way is he unfit for the Presidency, but he could have handled this controversy much more effectively.

Notice how I managed to write the above blog post using only one curse word! There's hope for me, yet. Fucking awesome!

For all the sleazy, slim ball, back-stabbing shit that happens in the District of Corruption, Cain is a saint.
And that is likely what bothers most of them on either side of the aisle.
He definitely has my vote.

Borderline Communists? More like flat out communists.

Pablo, maybe you should forward this to Cain's campaign. Their inexperience is going to kill him. Now they have diarrhea of the mouth saying they might sue Politico for the harassment story. It won't matter how Cain can handle the presidency if his staff of bumbling idiots won't STFU. They will cost him the nomination.

Harper, I'm starting to believe some of the buzz on the airwaves and the Internet. That Herman Cain entered this race not thinking he would have a chance in hell at becoming a front runner. That his original motivation was for personal business opportunities. When he finally realized that he was connecting with the American people, like you pointed out, his bumbling group of idiots for campaign managers suddenly became exposed.

It is what it is I guess. Where to from here?

They need to get the hell past it. At least quit dragging other candidates into it. Every fucking headline this morning was something along the lines of 'the longer the Republicans bicker over the Cain harassment leak, the better for Obama'. Along those lines, I would have much more respect for a candidate that owned his past, no matter what it contained, rather than always casting blame. Sounds a lot like Oblamebush...

No fucking way. I saw Herman (on C-Span, yes I watch C-Span) in 2009 at the Georgia Tea Party talk about running for president. He is not a slick lying politician, that is his problem with the media. To me that is an asset. He is learning on his feet. Let's not believe the media BS.
