stick a fork in Cain....he's done.

even if he runs, he's lost any chance he had.

he looks like a narcissistic philanderer who can't even have an honest relationship with his wife of all people...why would anyone trust him with the most powerful office on earth?

Cain's out...

Looks like his wife wasn't buying the "Baybeeee...she lyin'" routine.

Next up...Herman Cain explains why he "kept" a woman for 13 years with a straight face.

What is it about Republicans? Herman Cain wasn’t even aware that China has been a nuclear power since the 1960s. This is what he said about China in a PBS Newshour interview:-
So yes they're a military threat. They've indicated that they're trying to develop nuclear capability and they want to develop more aircraft carriers like we have. So yes, we have to consider them a military threat.

The odious Michelle Bachmann is just as ignorant of foreign affairs. When she heard that Britain had withdrawn its embassy staff from Iran, she said:-
That's exactly what I would do if I were president. We wouldn't have an embassy in Iran. I wouldn't allow that to be there.”
The USA hasn't had an embassy in Tehran since 1980, when it severed relations during the hostage crisis.

Cain has now quit, but when the Republicans still can’t decide which halfwit to support out of a very mediocre bunch, it must surely be a walkover for Barack Obama in next year’s presidential election.

At least Cain had a plan, 9-9-9, rather than a mantra, “Obama”, which seems to be Michelle Bachmann’s every third word or so.

Heehee, you have to go back almost 3 years to dust that one off and parade it around. Of course, if anyone actually thinks Obama believed, now or then, that there are 57 states, then the problem lies with the person, not Obama. That kind of verbal typo is very common - he's thinking, "I campaigned in 47 of the 50 states" and out comes 57, especially if you're tired which Obama definitely was. But that's just it, Obama blurted out a verbal typo. People like Cain and Bachmann are throwing out entire paragraphs with factual errors in them - and Bachmann is actually proclaiming what she would do if she were president based on knowledge she doesn't even have!

Big, big difference.

I'd rather have a mantra than a plan that takes food and medicine out of the mouths of the poor, disabled, and elderly just so the rich can have a few more luxuries - or power, and most people who are wealthy convert money into power these days. No thanks.

I’d rather have a man with a plan, “9-9-9”, that addresses the problem than a woman with a mantra, “[1st word]… I2nd word]… [3rd word]‘Obama’… [1st word]… I2nd word]… [3rd word]‘Obama’… [1st word]… I2nd word]… [3rd word]‘Obama’…” that addresses insomnia.

michelle bachman is just following in Obama's footsteps....do nothing in governance, business or public service your whole life, get elected to Congress and spend every minute thereafter running for President.

she figures, "hey...if Obama can do it, why not anyone?"

I think we need to accept the reality that no one really wants to be president anymore. There was a time when becoming the President of the United States was considered to be the highest attainable goal, something every parent dreamed for their children: "Study hard, darling, and someday you might be president!" Becoming a doctor or a lawyer were good, too, but president, now THAT was the measure of true success!

These days, however, a parent is more likely to say, "You want to be president, darling? Wouldn't you rather be a ditch digger? You even get a shiny new shovel!" The media, the press, the political pundits, freelance authors, newspaper columnists, lampoon specialists, and even the average griping person on the street has dragged the Office of the President down to such subterranean levels that it has become a joke. Having your past sifted through with the same thoroughness of a crime scene forensics team does not help either, especially when even the tiniest fiber or hint of a blood splatter is presented to the American public as "Exhibit A" as to why you shouldn't be elected.

Perhaps the most damage is done by the opposition party. Admittedly, the worst of it was started by the Democrats during Bush II's term, but the conservative Republicans have taken it to a whole new level. The latest batch of stupidity brought forth by them was how Obama didn't mention God during his Thanksgiving speech. I mean, seriously, what the hell?

With criticism like that, even I wouldn't want to be the president - and my past is clean of any major wrong-doing. I think the worst thing I've ever done was steal one dollar from a waitress's tip money because I was short some odd amount of change for my meal bill. I'm sure the opposition party would distort that into being the worst crime since the Holocaust, and I wouldn't want to subject myself to that. If I had children, I would want even less for my children to become political fodder for my enemies.

There are no serious contenders for the Republican nomination. Someone will receive it, of course, but no one truly fit to hold the office. Just look at the people who flirted with the idea - Sarah Palin, Donald Trump, hell, it would seem that hosting a reality show has become a primary presidential requirement. In fact, the presidential election and subsequent four years will probably be reduced to a reality show at some point. Even John Colbert tossed around the idea of running for a brief time. Who will be next to think about running? Paris Hilton?

Running for president has become a joke, a farce ... even a stunt, the kind of thing someone does on a lark while still half-drunk from last night's toga party. But ... as long as they say "God" often enough and wear their religion on their sleeves, anyone will do, I suppose.

View nothing:


  1. Served Southside Chicago residents sans acclaim;
  2. Served We the People of Illinois through meritorious representation in the state legislature;
  3. Served We the People of Illinois through meritorious representation in the United States Senate;
  4. Serves We the People of the United States through meritorious performance as President of the United States of America.


That’s a whole lotta nothing.
