Ah, the Good Old Days . . .

Remember when Cainiacs assured me that all of the controversy surrounding their candidate would only serve to increase his name identification, the money his campaign had, and inevitably, his momentum as he would supposedly go from strength to strength, and become the Republican nominee for president?

Yeah. How did that plan turn out?

Incidentally, before any commenters complain that I have traveled this ground many times before, let me remind them that Cain decided to run for president, and therefore willingly subjected himself to the most exacting of scrutiny. If he didn’t know that he would get this kind of scrutiny upon deciding to run for president, he is even more clueless than I gave him credit for. As for the Cainiacs, they decided to astroturf my comments section to try desperately to spin unfavorable facts their way. As far as I am concerned, they entirely deserve to have salt rubbed into what I hope are open and gaping wounds.

    Really? That’s the way you want to treat people in your own party? Do you just not care who you alienate?

    The take home is just how easy it is to generate a campaign ending scandal for Republican candidates.  Evidence?  That’s the other guy’s problem.  In fact, we were told that just his handling of the unsubstantiated allegations disqualified him to be president.  We roll over and take it, because unlike the left, that’s just what we do.  Besides, we had our own reasons not to like the guy, so who cares how he gets taken out of the race.

    Fortunately, there will be no effort to take out the guy we do like – the real conservative that is smooth and nuanced.  Because they promised – a fair minded battle of ideas over the hearts and minds of the American people.  That’s the way it’s going to be, right?

    Perhaps not.
