    Time for Herman Cain to take a three-day weekend.

    Background: Cain’s Chief of Staff Mark Block went on the air today to admit, yeah, it really couldn’t have been former Cain staffer Curt Anderson who leaked the original Cain sexual harassment story to Politico, given that Anderson’s denied it in Politico – and is now giving permission to every reporter that Anderson’s ever talked to about Cain ever to reveal the details of those | Read More »

    Politico’s Hit Piece History

    Disclaimer: Politico is a left wing rag…   I’m afraid the history of Politico must be called into question as well as the character of their so called journalists. Politico is known for employing hit piece character assassins who disguised as journalists who routinely take comments out context in order to create conflict (Example: Taking Sarah Palin’s “Flavor of the week” comments about Herman Cain | Read More »

    This was not a good phone interview for Team Cain.

    Via @ewerickson… actually, it’s going around and around and around, but I have to H/T somebody. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gclK_CYyspE&feature=player_embedded#! Anyway, for those without video, it’s a phone interview where Geraldo Freaking Rivera scores points off of Herman Cain spokesman JD Gordon over yesterday’s allegations of past sexual harassment charges made against the candidate. Gordon was unprepared, and (at best) uninformed about the facts about the case; he | Read More »

    Cain Allegations: No There There

    In light of last night’s Politico story about allegations against Herman Cain, it is important to clarify the legal meaning of the term “sexual harassment.” Specifically, Politico reports allegations that Herman Cain made an “an unwanted sexual advance” and engaged in “innuendo or personal questions of a sexually suggestive nature.” Politico suggests that this amounts to sexual harassment, using the term at least six times. | Read More »

    This Week in Washington – September 19, 2011

    The President will be making a speech today from the Rose Garden (echoes of Carter?) mapping out proposed savings of $3 trillion over the next 10 years.  According to the AP, the President’s new plan contains an old idea — massive tax increases: $1.5 trillion in new revenue, which would include about $800 billion realized over 10 years from repealing the Bush-era tax rates for couples | Read More »

    Dan Riehl and The Rest of the Story

    By the way, it is worth going here now. I thought it had all blown over and was going to let it go.One of the things Ben Smith wrote was: A leading conservative blogger and commentator, Erick Erickson, said he shifted his stance in a key Senate race because the company that publishes his RedState.com is “socially connected” to former Virginia Senator George Allen.

    Who’s Lying; Politico or Ellison?

    I’ve argued in the past, and will continue in the future, that we cannot let the Left and the Party-run media define us.   We also cannot let them get away with lying all the time.  In fact, it’s so important I’m going to present a little scenario that happened to me today.  It demonstrates that the Democratic Party has become so transparently deceitful, almost everything | Read More »
