Herman Cain did not just fall, he was pushed

Posted by  ▪  December 4, 2011
I’ve done this before, more than once.  But now that Herman Cain is out of the race, this may be the last time (probably not, but we can hope): As of today, 5 weeks after Politico broke the story, we still do not know what Herman Cain was accused of doing at the National…

Post-Cain Stuff

Posted by  ▪  December 4, 2011
In the wake of Herman Cain’s suspension of his campaign, lots of movement: Michele Bachmann claims to be picking up Cain supporters.  Just stop it.  Just stop it.  This is the same thing you pulled over the summer about Palin planning to endorse you. Rick Santorum seems like a nice guy, someone who…

Final Exams

Posted by  ▪  December 4, 2011
I just finished classes on Thursday and now I’m in finals territory. I have two papers and two cumulative exams between this week and next. I abhor cumulative exams. They are a total time drain and I have yet to feel productive while studying for one. It inevitably turns into a cramming…

Don’t play the “baggage” game

Posted by  ▪  December 4, 2011
John Hinderaker at Power Line writes the following about the departure of Herman Cain (bracketed “Points” mine): [Point 1] What happened to Herman Cain is what the Democrats intend to do to whoever the Republican nominee turns out to be.  They know they can’t win a debate on the economy or on…

“Gingrich may be a lightning rod, but he also embodies the revolution like no one else”

Posted by  ▪  December 4, 2011
There are certain times you read something, and say Yes, that’s exactly what I was thinking. And sometimes that thing was said long ago but still applies today, like this article from The Weekly Standard, Why Newt Must Run (h/t HotAir)(emphasis mine): But just as the Gingrich of November 1995 is different from the one…

Left out

We definitely have a hokey pokey administration, except that we only seem to put our left hand and foot out. That probably suits this vehicle owner, since it was spotted in Ithaca:

Huckabee Candidates Forum

Posted by  ▪  December 3, 2011
End Game Assessment:  Something different.  Not sure we learned much.  Not having everyone or at least multiple candidates together allowed for stock answers.  This was not a format in which one candidate clearly could be a winner or loser. Clearly went after Newt with the most vigor, seemed loaded for bear from…

Vicious smirkle

Posted by  ▪  December 3, 2011
Michele Walk has noticed that Alan Grayson is gracing these pages with great frequency, and adds “I hope people are clicking on the ads — nothing sweeter than making Grayson pay conservative bloggers!” I fully understand sentiment, but … that may create a vicious smirkle. The more you click his smirky face, the…

Saturday Night Card Game (Pravda says The Tea Party is like the KKK)

Posted by  ▪  December 3, 2011
This is the latest in a series on the use of the race card for political gain: PRAVDA HITS NEW LOW!!!!! I know, yawn.  Everyone knows there is not “truth” in Pravda. But really, how much lower can Pravda go than this article about the Ku Klux Klan which compares the Klan to the Tea…

Politico targets Newt

Posted by  ▪  December 3, 2011
Politico targeted Herman Cain in an almost unprecedented fashion, turning its homepage into all Herman Cain all the time for about two weeks. Politico can move and shape a story because of its high traffic (reportedly 60 million page views a month and 8-10 million “unique visitors”), and its relationships with traditional…
