Herman Cain: Art of the Possible →
As Bill Clinton could tell us, in this current climate of nonstop ideological and partisan warfare, sex scandals are often less about what the truth is than which side you’re on. In the 1990s, more Americans wanted to be on Clinton’s side than Ken Starr’s, no matter the obvious truth that Clinton was lying about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky. For a moment now, Cain’s been benefiting from...

Latest Republican Debate on Religion and Social... →
The candidates all sit around a mock Thanksgiving table and get all weepy and teary-eyed talking about Jesus. The “family forum” opens with an I-can’t-believe-this-is-real-where-did-our-country-go-so-horribly-wrong music video about how we need Jesus more than ever. It should be noted that the two most sensible (or least insane, depending on how you view it) candidates were not...
High Childhood IQ Linked to Subsequent Illicit... →
Although it is not yet clear exactly why there should be a link between high IQ and illicit drug use, the authors point to previous research, showing that highly intelligent people are open to experiences and keen on novelty and stimulation. Other research has also shown that brainy children are often easily bored and suffer at the hands of their peers for being different, “either of...

Wow. This is bad even for Herman Cain. He sounds like a high school student desperately trying to recall a chapter he was supposed to read for an exam. This is beyond pathetic. The entire GOP base should watch this with shame.

Good Riddance, Joe Paterno →
What happened, or more accurately did not happen, goes to the core of evil that major college sports programs in this country have become, equivalent to Mafia families in which the code of omerta rules and coaches and staff always close ranks around their own, even if it means letting someone who was first accused of inappropriate sexual conduct in 1998 continue to roam.

If Cain is a sexist man-pig, then Clinton is certainly much… The difference is that while Clinton was a man whore (there’s no...

One cannot express disgust for Herman Cain’s sexual “misconduct” or “inappropriateness” or whatever euphemism we’re using to describe his perversion, and then turn around and say Bill Clinton’s erotic escapades were no big deal. If Cain is a sexist man-pig, then Clinton is certainly much worse and therefore was unfit for office. I’ve never liked...
As Regulator Pressed Changes, Corzine Pushed Back,... →
Former Democratic governor of New Jersey and former Goldman Sachs CEO Jon Corzine successfully persuaded regulators to allow him to borrow money from his own customers. Then, he lost hundreds of millions of dollars, his company imploded, and now he’s under investigation by the FBI. Perfect example of how Democrats can be just as guilty as Republicans in promoting dangerous deregulation and...

Not sure how seriously one can take this, but Huntsman would obviously get the moderate and independent voters that Cain and, to a lesser extent, Romney could not.
