Herman Cain Is A Ridiculous Asshole

I think all of us understand one thing...

Herman Cain is a ridiculous asshole.

In making that statement let me make one other thing abundantly clear. I couldn't care less about where that ridiculous asshole sticks his schvantz.

The latest revelation that he carried on a 13 year affair interests me about as much as watching paint dry. That is an issue between the ridiculous asshole, his wife and his family. I said the same thing about Bill Clinton and I still believe that to be true today.

That being said I find it sad that pundits from both sides of the aisle claim that this is what will finish his campaign to be president of the United States. What I mean to say is... wasn't there an abundance of issues way before this that should have ended his political career?

Take for instance his predatory behavior towards women. No I don't mean his affair I. mean the 4 to 5 instances where he was accused of sexual misconduct by his co-workers. This is a true character flaw. When a person uses their position to acquire sexual favors wouldn't that automatically be a disqualifier? I mean the guy was accused by as many as 5 women. I think that is sufficient to take the coincidence factor out of this nauseating equation and end his candidacy?

This taken in conjunction with every other misstep and gaffe makes Cain more of a criminally bad joke than a man qualified to be the leader of the free world.

He came to fame by floating an economic plan based on the video game "Sim City"

He quotes Pokemon during debates

He believes that African Americans have been brainwashed into not being conservatives!

He doesn't know what a NEOCON is

He didn't know that China has had nuclear weapons since the 1960's

He doesn't know about Libya

Finally Cain's claim to fame was running a freaking pizza company... A PIZZA COMPANY!

His sexual dalliances with other consenting adults should never have ever been a factor in deducing that... Herman Cain is a ridiculous asshole!

Fox News Viewers Know Less Than People Who Don't Watch Any News

According to a new poll from Fairleigh Dickinson University Fox News viewers are less informed than people who don't watch any news.

That's right, if you live under a rock and have no access to television or internet news you, my friend, are better informed than the majority of Fox News viewers!

The poll surveyed New Jersey residents about the uprisings in Egypt and the Middle East, and where they get their news sources. The study, which controlled for demographic factors like education and partisanship, found that "people who watch Fox News are 18-points less likely to know that Egyptians overthrew their government" and "6-points less likely to know that Syrians have not yet overthrown their government" compared to those who watch no news.

Dan Cassino, a political science professor at Fairleigh Dickinson, explained in a statement, "Because of the controls for partisanship, we know these results are not just driven by Republicans or other groups being more likely to watch Fox News. Rather, the results show us that there is something about watching Fox News that leads people to do worse on these questions than those who don’t watch any news at all."

Read the entire study in downloadable PDF form HERE.

This isn't the first study that produced dumbfounding results about Fox News viewers.

Last year a study from the University of Maryland found that Fox News viewers were more likely to believe false information about politics.

And the beat goes on.

A Turkey Of A Day

I think in light of the the conservative, right wing attitude towards immigration/immagrants lately this New Yorker Thanksgiving Day cartoon titled titled “Promised Land” by Christoph Niemann sums up the present day pilgrims residence this country (that would be you and me) perfectly...Hits a little close to home doesn't it righties. You know the Pilgrims were the first illegal aliens and you know you are probably related to them (and would brag about it if you knew for sure). Get back to your own country and stop taking real Americans jobs!

Anyway, praise the type 2 diabetes and pass the small pox ridden blankets!

Pat Robertson: Is Mac and Cheese a "Black Thing"?

During a interview with Condoleezza Rice, The 700 Club's host Kristi Watts asked what Thanksgiving dish was Rice's favorite. Rice replied "macaroni and cheese" to which Watts said "Sister, that is my dish".

After the interview Pat Robertson asked Watts "What Is This 'Mac And Cheese,' Is That A Black Thing?"

I think what amazed me most, besides the blatant racial ignorance and insensitivity, was that Watts didn't bat an eyelash.

You can't make this shit up!

Newt Wants Out!

In an effort to get the press to stop talking about ties to Freddie Mac and his lobbying for the medical insurance companies Newt Gingrich has floated two real brain turds.

My own personal thinking is that, much like Herman Cain, Newt really never wanted to be President. I believe this was a marketing tour to fortify their brands. I think that when they became front runners it threw a wrench into the works and they did their best to implode. Mr. Gingrich died on the vine early on and only more recently did Mr. Cain succeeded in detonating, but Newt's re-emergence as a front runner was an unforeseen problem.

Well they are a problem no more due to his two campaign killing gaffes.

For starters...

Gingrich says he believes "child labor laws are stupid". Yes his platform will be to take the country back to 1880 when 9 year olds were putting in an honest days work!

Here is the clip...

Master Janitor!!!! Really!!!!!

Now for his coup de grace...

In the Republican Presidential Debate on CNN last night Newt said that he was all for amnesty for illegal immigrants... No I'm not kidding, he really said it.

Here is the clip...

If you want to end your campaign really quickly just try that noose on for size. Just ask Rick perry how it fits. He said it would be "heartless to deny children of illegal immigrants states benefits in an earlier debate and look at his poll numbers now!

Rush Limbaugh Defends NASCAR, Says Michelle Obama Is "Uppity"

As seen on ABC news...

NASCAR Crowd Boos Michelle Obama

Keep it classy NASCAR!

I like how the put a wounded Iraqi Veteran, Sergeant Andrew Berry, on the dais with her as if it was going to stop them from acting like a bunch of... Ah, you can put your own descriptions here.

Cain's Racism Metastasizes

After being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in his liver and his colon in 2006 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said he was initially uncomfortable when he found out that his surgeon had a foreign name. While attending a function at the Holy Land Experience, a Biblically-themed amusement park in Orlando, he told an audience that a surgeon who had once treated him for his cancer was named "Dr. Abdallah."

"I said to his physician assistant, I said, 'That sounds foreign, not that I had anything against foreign doctors, but it sounded too foreign,". The assistant then replied that the doctor was "from Lebanon.' Cain then exclaimed "Oh, Lebanon! My mind immediately started thinking, wait a minute, maybe his religious persuasion is different than mine! She could see the look on my face and she said, 'Don't worry, Mr. Cain, he's a Christian from Lebanon."

"Hallelujah!" said Cain. "Thank God!"

Yes, Hallelujah indeed.

Cain says he is now "100 percent, cancer-free." However his racism has spread throughout his entire body.

Perry Ad Distorts Obama's Comments

In a meeting last week with CEOs in Honolulu, Obama described the American government and business sectors as a "little bit lazy."

For full context here are Obama’s exact comments...

...There are a lot of things that make foreign investors see the U.S. as a great opportunity -- our stability, our openness, our innovative free market culture," Obama said. "But we've been a little bit lazy, I think, over the last couple of decades. We've kind of taken for granted -- well, people will want to come here and we aren't out there hungry, selling America and trying to attract new business into America."

After hearing this Rick Perry, seeing an opportunity to make some political points, took the president's comments out of context and claimed Obama was called Americans "lazy". Perry's next step was to take out an ad in which he takes Obama's out of context comments and then feigns disgust at the nonexistent slight against the American people.

Here is Perry's attack ad...

(Notice Perry's Grammar is for shit even in a scripted video... "That's what our president thinks wrong with America..." Try an "is" in there Ricky!)

Riffing on the same theme Perry then took to the airwaves via The Sean Hannity Show to tell viewers what Obama's statement means to him... "It reveals to me that he grew up in a privileged way,"... "He never had to really work for anything."

For the record President Obama was raised by a single mother, who occasionally had to use food stamps to put meals on the table. He earned scholarships and took out loans to afford college and eventually became the first black president of the Harvard Law Review... What A Slacker!

I guess Perry is vying for Newt Gingrich's title of world's biggest bullshit artist. It's a close call.

Herman Cain... Pokemon... What More Could You Want?

At the end of one of August's Republican debates, while issuing his final comments, Herman Cain told the crowd the following:

A poet once said, ‘life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible, but it’s never easy when there’s so much on the line.’”

That poet my friends is Donna Summers and it is from the theme song of the movie Pokemon: The Movie 2000!!!!!!!

Here is a clip put together by Youtube user highoffcoffee496 for The Nintendo WiFi Community...

New York magazine did some further searching and discovered that Cain has used the quote at least three other times in the campaign so far.

Mind Blown.

Republicans Say: "Hurray For Torture!"

It seems like at every Republican debate the audience cheers or boos at something that seems entirely inappropriate. Unfortunately last Saturday's debate didn't disappoint.

Let's start at the beginning. First it was applauding Rick Perry's record setting number of people put to death on his watch. Then the audience shouted for the death of a critically ill man because he lacked proper health insurance. In the next debate the crowd booed and shouted at an American soldier serving in Iraq due to his sexual orientation.

And now this...

In Saturday's Republican debate when the candidates were asked if they considered waterboarding torture and whether they would they employ it's usage if they became president.

Herman Cain answered first. When he said that he didn't consider waterboarding torture only as an enhanced interrogation technique the crowd cheered heartily.

Then Michelle Bachman emphatically answered that she didn't believe waterboarding was torture and she would most assuredly use the technique in her administration. The audience cheered even louder when that red meat was tossed at them.

It was unsettling to say the least.

I must however say that when Ron Paul said "torture is illegal" there was at least a polite smattering of applause from the spectators. When Jon Huntsman disavowed waterboarding as torture he got an even bigger cheer.

So maybe there is some hope after all...? View it below and decide for yourself.

Got Stuff Twirlin' Around In My Head

Today in a meeting with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel editorial board Herman Cain was asked whether or not he agreed with President Obama's course of action in Libya. What ensued was as painful to watch as Rick Perry fumbling for the third governmental department at last weeks Republican Debate... Maybe worse. Cain was completely clueless to put it mildly.

His complete lack of knowledge is truly embarrassing...

I was banging my head on the desk as you watched that! Yes, he officially beat Rick Perry's 58 second brain fart by a whopping 9 seconds!!!!!!

C'mon Herman, we all know the talking points...

Leading from behind

Leaves a power vacuum for the Muslim brotherhood

Took to long because Obama is indecisive

And just don't mention that it worked without any US troops getting hurt!

I guess he didn't check his email that week.

Jim Demint Hates Our Troops

Well I should say that he hates President Obama more than he cares about our troops.

Here's the story...

Senator Jim Demint is a "Tea Party" favorite. He is a social conservative who believes President Obama hates America and all it stands for.

Through his actions though one would conclude that it was Jim Demint who hated our troops.

This conclusion would be arrived at due to the fact that Demint was the only Senator out of 100 that voted against giving a tax credit to business that hire American war veterans. The bill named "Vow To Hire Heros" was part of President Obama's job plan.

Here are a few reasons Demint gave for being the only Senator to vote against the bill...

Demint said of the bill that the government "should not privilege one American over another when it comes to work"

Another quote by DeMint was that the Veterans Hiring Bill Is A Democratic "Trick".

The only trick is how this un-American hyper-partisan politician ever became a US Senator in the first place.

Thank you all for fighting for our freedom...

Penn State Students Love Child Molesters

Here are some actual photos of Penn State student rioting over the firing of their head football coach Joe Paterno for covering up for his child molesting assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. Sandusky is accused of raping over 20 children as well as pimping them out to wealth Penn State donors.

I know this has nothing to do with politics or religion or conservatives or bigotry but for my money it is the same hive mind mentality that runs throughout every one of them. It's a lack of individual morality... a lack of thinking for one's own self... A lack of conscience and consciousness. It nauseates me to my core.

Keep it classy Penn State!

Mississippi 'Personhood' Amendment Vote Fails

As a seemingly definitive referendum on an egregious example of conservative overreach Mississippi voters defeated a ballot initiative that would've declared life begins at fertilization

The "personhood" initiative was rejected by more than 55 percent of voters

The measure would have made abortion to be illegal "from the moment of fertilization". This would have made abortion in any "pregnancy" including rape, incest and ones endangering the life of the mother a crime. It would have even made miscarriages a potential crime scene!

The 'Personhood' Amendment would have also made birth control, such as the morning-after pill. the the regular pill and IUDs illegal.

The party of small government and personal freedoms sure wants to be all up in women's vaginas don't they.

The defeat of this amendment shouldn't make us complacent just yet as the measure’s supporters have indicated they may try it in other states next year.

Ohio Anti-Union Law Soundly Defeated

The union stripping law SB5 (Senate Bill 5) has been recalled in Ohio. It's defeat is seen as a huge referendum on Republican Gov. John Kasich's attempt to do away with collective bargaining. This after Kasich warned Democrats that they needed to support a hard-edged anti-union law or get run over by “the bus”.

Besides being seen as a conservative overreach Senate Bill 5 was looked at as an attack on the middle class many of whom belong to labor unions.

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. said:"One message rang loud and clear tonight in Ohio and across the country: those who spend their time scapegoating workers and pushing a partisan agenda will only strengthen the resolve of working people...".

When looking at the big picture what SB5 really is was the Republicans first step in doing away with Unions altogether. This is due to the fact that labor unions usually contribute heavily to Democrats much the way big business contributes mainly to Republicans. If they were successful in doing away with the unions the GOP would have a clear cut advantage in elections due to the fact that they would have considerably more money in their campaign coffers.

Good campaign strategy but bad for the already struggling middle class of America. So much for compassionate conservatives?

The Herman Cain Sexual Harassment Timeline

OK.... Let's see how this is shaping up...

The Sexual Harassment Charges Are Being Spread By The "Racist" Liberal Media.

Herman Cain on why the liberal media is going after him:
In a fundraising letter the Cain campaign says this: "They're at it again. The left is trying to destroy Herman Cain — just like they did to Clarence Thomas," the letter said, referring to the Supreme Court justice, who is also black. "They are engaging in a high-tech lynching by smearing his reputation and attacking his character."

Ann Coulter on why the liberal media is going after Herman Cain: “Our blacks are so much better than their blacks

Rush Limbaugh on why the liberal media is going after him: has called the story A "racist" "witch hunt," claimed that vicious scribes are out to "destroy" Cain, and announced the Politico article piece was an "unconscionable, racially stereotypical attack."

No...Wait... It's different now.

The Charges Are False. They Never Happened.

Herman cain denying the sexual harassment ever happened:

Mark Block denying the sexual harassment ever happened:

Hold up now. Everything is different.

Now Herman Cain Does Remember Everything But It Was All A Lie!

Cain continues to deny sexual harassment but now claims it did occur but the accusations were false:

Stop the presses. Here's what really happened...

It's All Rick Perry's Fault!

Mark Block claiming Perry is behind it all:
"The American people deserve better than these underhanded tactics by the Perry campaign. And Rick Perry owes Mr. Cain's family an apology. A desperate candidate is trying to steal the Republican nomination away from Mr. Cain,"


Third Worker Says Cain Harassed Her

A woman told The Associated Press on Wednesday tha Herman Cain issued a private invitation to his corporate apartment. She then stated that Cain made sexually suggestive remarks or gestures. This apparently happened about the same time that two co-workers had settled separate harassment complaints against Cain, who was then the head of the National Restaurant Association.

My 2 cents... How could they have ever blamed the liberal media. This guy Cain is a gift! Why would we ever want to get rid of him. Please... I repeat, PLEASE run Herman Cain as your nominee for President of the United States of America. Can you say Obama cake walk?

Pat Robrtson Has Lost It: Halloween Edition!

My favorite part of the video is when Robertson says of Halloween "We don't belive in ghosts".... REALLY. Not even the father, the son and the holy.... Ummm... what comes next?
