Herman Cain: Teflon Pizza Don or Mr. Magoo of GOP

November 1, 2011

I have been wanting to move past “politics of the day” to discuss what I think are more relevant issues in the bigger picture but I continue to be fascinated by Herman Cain and what his story means to the 2012 race. The more media declares his candidacy over the better he does with the […]

Is Herman Cain’s loss Rick Perry’s gain?

October 31, 2011

UPDATE 11/3/2011 4pm: A new Rasmussen poll taken after the leak of sexual allegations shows Herman Cain actually taking the lead over Romney. Rick Perry doubles his numbers to 8% while Bachmann, Huntsman and Santorum bottom out. It appears Perry drew his support from the later candidates and Cain seems to be holding his own. Its […]

Herman Cain Denies Sexual Harassment but can he Dodge the Character Assassination attempt?

October 31, 2011

Herman Cain has had a long week of plateauing and catching strange looks for his recent campaign ads, but the latest news of possible sexual harassment hush money will be a true test of his campaign’s Teflon coating. I wondered how long it would take for the media, who have been infatuated with the “unexplained” rise of Herman […]

Why Herman Cain may be Able even without money

Herman Cain was right when he said Black Walnut is “not the flavor of the week.” In fact everytime Republican primary voters get a taste they come back for more. For the political junkie who is used to watching the Republican party consistantly nominate the establishment candidate there are some very interesting dynamics going on here. […]

Rush Limbaugh said it first.

I could not help but comment on the above headline. It was displayed prominently by Drudge post-debate. What’s interesting is earlier in the day on his radio program Rush Limbaugh  said, “So their objective at CNN is going to be to make every one of these people look like an absolute wacko nutcase fruitcake.” So Anderson Cooper will […]

The GOP field on Occupy Wall Street: Mitt Romney -“I think it’s dangerous, this class warfare,” Rick Perry – 1.) “We understand the frustration with the Obama economy, but the protests don’t make sense or help create jobs.” 2.) “You know Liberals are now pointing the finger of blame at successful employers under the guise of […]

What Herman Cain and Occupy Wall Street have in common

October 15, 2011

1 Comment

There is an irony in the media trying to marginalize both Herman Cain and the Occupy Wall Street movement. They are both “the little guy” in their respective scenarios being picked on by the establishment.  Cain may not be their most obvious champion but he would be smart to be more sympathetic tho their grievance.  Saying things like, “Don’t blame Wall Street, […]

Herman Cain: Cracking the Black Walnut

October 14, 2011

The takeaway:  Voters are expressing what they want in a candidate more than their actual support for Herman Cain or his 9-9-9 plan. Talk to a political hack and he is likely to tell you Herman Cain is not a ‘serious’ candidate. Poll Republican primary voters and you get a different answer. Pundits and even the other candidates […]

Mitt Romney and the 7 Dwarves?

October 12, 2011

0 Comments

I Watched the GOP primary debate in awe that the Republican Party has yet to find atruly competitive conservative candidate to challenge Mitt Romney.  It was like watching an episode of surviver for most of the candidates as they desperately tried to play up their support and stand out from an overly crowded field. The debates may have […]

Niggerhead-gate: Heritage not Hate?

October 5, 2011

0 Comments

I still believe this “#Niggerheadgate” will blow over before the next debate. This week has already seen more than its fair share of racial politics and strangely intertwined narratives. In a nut shell it goes something like – Rick Perry gets in trouble over a racial slur on his ranch, then fires back at Herman Cain for […]

“Niggerhead”: A good Whitewashing?

October 3, 2011

1 Comment

The Washington Post published a story suggesting that Governor Perry took little issue with an offensive slur etched into a stone near the entrance of his hunting camp. The now infamous “Niggerhead” has been painted over but the story has raised eyebrows including those of black conservative and GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain. Cain himself is barely […]
