Razing Cain

The media have been up to their usual tricks this week, smearing a Republican candidate with innuendo and anonymous charges. As the always fair minded James Taranto notes, Cain seems as much a victim as a villain in this  latest mediagenic tale:  With virtually no facts available, a fair-minded person cannot possibly draw any conclusions […]

Tort Reform Anyone? Cain Considers Legal Action Against Politico

Don’t Underestimate Cain

Print Email Text Size The Spectacle Blog By Aaron Goldstein on 11.3.11 @ 9:36PM I disagree with John Tabin’s take on Herman Cain.

I mean, he says he loves Jesus, he sings Gospel at the National Press Club, and he doesn’t hate white folks.  What is he, some kind of weirdo?  This sounds un-American to me. Whatever happened to […]

Who Will Save New York? Herman Cain?

I’ve just had my fourth grown son move his employment or business from New York State to Virginia.  A fifth had already moved to Colorado.  A daughter and three grandchildren are still here both working and living.  For how long I don’t know because my son-in-law’s situation is fluid and the school taxes they pay […]

However, I think his answer to Morgan and to David Gregory over the weekend is perfectly consistent […]
