Herman Cain quits his Presidential run…

Good afternoon, Netizens…


Although this David Horsey cartoon of Herman Cain does not truly apply to a perceived conspiracy of the liberal news media, perhaps the truth of the bra over his eyes is more accurate than one can imagine. However, at some point, Cain must have taken the bra off his eyes and, realizing the truth of where he was heading (perhaps his wife spoke to him) decided that politics and infidelity were not a good mix. As JeanieSpokane noted just a short time ago, Cain is quitting his run for the Republican Candidate for the Presidency.


Rather than haul off and buy into any kind of a conspiracy theory regarding Cain and his various love interests, purportedly sponsored by some cabal of the leftist news media, let us simply state he might have been as horny as a bachelor goat in a herd of ewes. This brings us to a number of moral lessons every politician should know and obey.


Lesson one: No man should ever run for public office when his zipper is prone to flying open at the first possible licentious opportunity. Outside of marriage, if one cannot keep their zipper firmly closed, the chances are that sooner or later everyone else will know about it and probably tell everything they know.


Lesson two: The grass does not grow greener on the other side, despite what it might appear. Serving divorce papers on an ex-wife laying in a hospital bed with cancer to marry with unconscionable haste to his present wife made Newt Gingrich a pariah in some political spheres, including his own Republican Party. He should stay that way, a castaway in his own Conservative Republican Party, rather than attempt to sweep the past beneath the rug.


Lesson three: Do not tell the members of the news media to ignore ones private sexual life if you are running for the Presidency. Once they will know a candidate has skeletons in his closet they will begin pounding on the closet door until they find out what the skeletons are.


Lesson four: Sexual harassment is illegal, whether or not you are a political candidate,


It doesn't make a bit of difference which political party one hails from.



Herman Cain is Getting Out of the Bed

Well, it has begun - all the sniping, gutter-swiping, yellow journalism, affairs, un-affairs, and innuendoes have finally sent Herman Cain out of the bed he was lying in.  He has “exited the political campaign” according to news sources (CNN for one).

I hate politics, don't you???  I would never run for an office - my personal life would be scrutinized so closely, most likely you would find out little trivial sins - like all the times I utilize the 10-second rule (especially if it is chocolate).

Cain didn't stand a chance once the first woman spoke up.

Fair warning to all of you potential presidents - lock your closets!  Those skeletons are just itching to escape.


Who benefits from Cain’s 9-9-9 tax overhaul?

Good morning, Netizens…


In his cartoon this morning, cartoonist David Horsey takes a shot at Republican Presidential candidate Herman Cain, suggesting he is no traitor to Republican causes. What I have found most interesting in Cain's candidacy is that, if selected as the Republican Party Presidential Candidate, which I do not necessarily believe will happen, we would quite possibly end up with two African-American candidates on the Presidential ballot for the first time in American history. Sure, why not?


In Cain's televised appearances, I have been noticing over time more and more African-Americans in the audiences, something that has captured my imagination. Would they have been present at what is a Republican function were it not for Cain's ethnicity? I cannot help but wonder how many of them were staunchly Democrats in the past and switched sides.


Then there is David Horsey's point, that being Herman Cain's 9-9-9 tax overhaul. Will it positively impact hedge fund managers? Or, as I feel possible, will 9-9-9 tax the daylights out of the middle class? I'll readily concur that the IRS tax code needs an overhaul, but is 9-9-9 the answer? I don't think so.


I do think Herman Cain might be the Republican candidate who would bring much-needed change to the lily-white Republican Party, and that might not be such a bad thing. Will it happen on my watch? Once again, I don't think so. Of course, your results may differ.
