God, I hope so.  There’s only so long I can take a novelty candidate like Herman Cain.

Look, he was probably a fine CEO.  If I ran Chuck-E-Cheeze, I’m sure I’d do fine, too.  But the point is that he has never had any substance whatsoever, and today, finally, the Oppo Researchers in our midst have begun unloading on Cain.

Over the weekend, we get this tidbit, wherein we learn Mr. Cain’s (alleged) behavior towards women.  And, today, Political Wire has this gem of an exchange, where the Hermanator uses the ol’ Third Grade Turnaround tactic to clear his name of any wrongdoing.

Then, today, we get this blatant violation of pretty much every election law I’ve ever seen.

Thank God this could be the end of Cain.  I’m ready for the Gingrich surge.

 

One Response to The Downfall of Cain?

    Actually, those who ran Pizza Time and Showbiz weren’t so lucky, which is how they were absorbed into Chuck E. Cheese. I only know this because one of my friends went as the bear from the Rock-a-fire explosion this weekend for Halloween.

    While I think Americans generically want their Presidents and Governors to have “Business experience” government is ultimately not a business. Being elected to something is difficult work – and then doing the job is also unique. At the end of the day I don’t think Cain can get the nod (even from crazy Republicans) without having some elected experience. Kind of makes you wonder why he never ran for Congress or something like that again.

    On the other hand, a Cain flameout is probably good news for Newt Gingrich, who is my outside shot to be the nominee. I think Romney is ultimately so un-appealing to an electorate that the last man standing (whether it is Obama if he makes it to the general or someone in the primary) beats him. Newt, by virtue of just not falling down may be the last man standing.

    Makes you wonder about all those Georgia GOP Newt guys who fled to Perry. Wouldn’t want to be them.
