Progressive Proselytizing: The importance of fundamentals for a stable nomination race

For any analyst, covering this GOP Presidential Nominee race is a humbling experience. Almost everybody – myself included – has made bad predictions. It has been so wildly unpredictable and erratic experiencing swings up and down in the polls for almost every candidate. While the eventual winner, Mitt Romney, has long been relatively clear, exactly how ...

Red Tory v.3.0.3: Colbert v. Citizens United

More fun with SuperPacs from the team of Stephen Colbert and his friend/business partner Jon Stewart (with whom he’s definitely not co-ordinating!). Because he’s not on the ballot in South Carolina and that state’s GOP doesn’t allow write-ins, the latest TV ad from the Americans for a Better America Tomorrow, Tomorrow SuperPac, Republican primary voters ...

Red Tory v.3.0.3: Cain “Suspends” Joke Campaign

As expected, Herman Cain announced today that he’s effectively dropping out of the race to be Leader of the Free World. I know… we’re all terribly let down by the decision. Cain claimed he made the decision “with a lot of prayer and soul searching” and blamed it on “the continued distraction, the continued hurt, ...

Cain Train derailed

From the “In What Will Come As No Surprise to Anyone” files, GOP presidential primary contender, pizzamonger and inveterate skirt-chaser extraordinaire Herman Cain has left the building: Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain effectively ended his 2012 White House race on Saturday, saying “false and unproved” sexual accusations have made it impossible for him to carry ...

Progressive Proselytizing: GOP Leadership Contest: The Likeability Factor

Pundits seem to love to profess multitudes of differing explanations for the see-sawing GOP leadership contest that has seen, respectively, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, Herman Cain and now Newt Gingrich surge to the front of the pack in challenging Mitt Romney. These alternative explanations range from the simple to the complex, the realistic to the ridiculous.  ...

Herman Cain suspends presidential bid. On to ‘Plan B’.

Because of the elites of course. First time I’ve seen is wife with him. Is that part of the deal that he step down and she will step out in public once again by his side? Observation: man, he’s a horrible speaker. How’d he get this far? Plan B? http://cainsolutions.com/ except there’s nothing there yet.

LeDaro: Herman Cain: Should I stay? Or should I quit?

That is the question? Poor Herman! Pleasure carries pain.

Herman Cain’s biggest offence is a parody of a defence: attack on ‘husbandless’ women

If you thought the current line-up of GOP presidential contenders had already gone beyond parody, think again. Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, Rich Santorum, Rick Perry have all contributed a comical suite of gaffes, outrageous statements, pious blathering and general idiocy unlike the US has ever seen. And then there’s Herman Cain. Even the right is ...

Red Tory v.3.0.3: Cain Disabled

Uh oh! Another “bimbo eruption” threatens to derail the Herman Cain Art Project for good this time… “It’s probably an infinite number of people who could come forward with a story…” With his poll numbers ebbing in the wake of an inexplicable popular resurgence by the ethically challenged serial adulterer, corrupt lobbyist and direct mail ...

How can a man feel so little for a wife? Herman Cain in another sex scandal.

Herman Cain must have such a low opinion of his wife that he will subject her to public accusation after accusation of his adulterous ways. Even if nothing so far has been proven, the smoke is beginning to turn into fire. It’s become beyond cruel that Cain leaves his poor wife out to dry, all ...

Pushed to the Left and Loving It: Piquante Sauce and Why Mitt Romney May Lose the Nomination Race

David Horsey wrote recently that Mitt Romney was the only adult in the GOP Kindergarten Race.  He’s probably right.  However, will it matter? Since the Republican Party was taken over by the Conservative Movement in 1964, they have a different criteria for a leader than simply the ability to win an election.  You have to ...

Red Tory v.3.0.3: Herman Cain Art Project?

I would love to subscribe to this amusing theory Rachel Maddow has been propounding of late to explain the otherwise perplexing Herman Cain campaign… Unfortunately, I just can’t seem to reconcile myself with the notion that Cain is a brilliantly satirical performance art genius to the more stubbornly held belief that the man is a ...

Herman Cain chickens out

Not such a smart move, Mr. Cain. Cancelling an interview because cameras will be present is a cowardly, badly-timed move that may sink his already-sinking campaign. It also says everything you need to know about Herman.

Pushed to the Left and Loving It: Why Does the Right Hold the Left to a Higher Moral Standard?

Despite the allegations of sexual misconduct, Herman Cain continues to poll high with Republicans. And yet they wasted millions of tax dollars in an attempt to impeach President Bill Clinton, because of a sex scandal.  Clinton’s was consensual.  Cain’s appear to have been uninvited assaults. When it was discovered that “family values” czar, Vic Toews, had fathered ...

Red Tory v.3.0.3: Herman Cain: On Libya

Talking to the editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal newspaper, Herman Cain demonstrates his foreign policy acumen with respect to the recent conflict in Libya… “Um, I do not agree with the way [Obama] handled it for the following reasons. Um, nope… that’s a different one. I gotta go back… see, uh, got all ...

Herman Cain’s Rick Perry Moment

Dumb as a box of rocks. Just when you didn’t think anyone could out-Perry Perry, try and understand this stream of bullshit about Libya from a man who has pretensions for the presidency. .

Like with Bachmann and W., God made Herman Cain do it

Herman Cain is now claiming he’s running for president as a personal mission from God. He didn’t mention who commanded him to harass women. Could it be…Satan?

DeSmogBlog: Koch Brothers Behind Push To Dismantle EPA

Koch Fat Cat.jpg During last week’s Americans For Prosperity (AFP) event, a common theme kept creeping into the speakers’ presentations: Dismantle the EPA. And as the major funders of AFP, Charles and David Koch are the ones pulling the strings of the American elected officials who keep clamoring for an end to all environmental protections. ...

Perry’s toast. Cain’s riding on fumes. Bachmann’s a bad memory. Gingrich’s rising on rest of field being dumbasses.

Wow. What a preznit-ending buffoon moment. The guy’s an idiot; glad the nation finally sees it. At this rate, Perry will only have Texans on his side. That won’t be enough. Bye-bye, Rick. Luckily for Herman Cain, his only sins so far are attempted adultery and sexual harassment, the most easily forgiven by his randy ...

LeDaro: Rush Limbaugh’s take on Sharon Bialek

As you know Sharon Bialek is the latest accuser of Herman Cain for sexual harassment or even sexual assault. Limbaugh pronounces her name as Buy-a lick and makes fun of her. This guy is a big crazy himself.As my previous posts show, I am no fan of Cain but this Bialek lady does not sound ...

Red Tory v.3.0.3: An Anal Cyst Says, What…?

Rush Limbaugh demonstrates, yet again, what an utterly loathsome, hypocritical, morally vacant douchebag he is. No wonder he has such a compelling appeal to countless millions of right-wing “dittoheads”… By the way, MSNBC did very well hiring former Republican campaign strategist Steve Schmidt as an analyst, don’t you think? His trenchant observations and dry remarks ...

“You Want a Job, Right?” Republicans gang up on Herman Cain.

With GOP presidential contender Rick Perry’s team being accused by Herman Cain of leaking claims of Cain sexual impropriety and registered Republican Sharon Bialek recounting a sexual assault at the hands of Mr. Cain, it appears the right is turning on Herman. That hasn’t stopped rightbloggers and the conservative media from continuing to blame the ...

The Disaffected Lib: Cain Accused of Messin’ with White Woman

At least Clarence Thomas’ accuser, Anita Hill,  was also black.  Now Herman Cain has a real problem.   His fourth accuser has come forward in the company of, wretch, attorney Gloria Allred, and she’s white. Sharon Bialek claims Cain took her out for dinner and then attempted to grope her in his car, putting his hand ...
