Let this be my last post about disingenuous buffoon Herman Cain

'Of all the Cornbreads, Cedric Maxwell is my favorite'

It’s sad that the failure of Herman Cain’s campaign will be blamed on his sexual peccadilloes.

I would’ve preferred the embodiment of talk radio’s wet dream been disqualified due to his uncomfortably long embrace of stupidity.

We need a leader, not a reader.”

Damn elitist multi-taskers!

Earlier tonight Cain delivered what was to be a “formalization” of the candidate’s views on foreign policy. He would’ve been better off taking questions from reporters about his affair (including “alleged” would be an insult to your intelligence, like saying you phone women at 4:30 in the morning to offer them financial advice).

A sampling:

Like any self-respecting motivational speaker, Cain brought along his own overhead projector.

Cain unveiled a new map to illustrate his view on America’s relationship with other countries.

Explaining the map to those in attendance at the speech, Cain described the map of the world, and pointed out that it included highlights showing the density of Facebook connections.

“Where you see the most liked, that’s where there is the most amount of freedom. Secondly, where you see the most liked is where you see the greatest amount of economic development,” he said. …

Libya, which he famously stumbled through an answer about in an editorial board interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel earlier this month, is listed as “clarity needed.”

Herman Cain is a moron.

He’s also a bigot who is a “great friend” to other bigots.

He knows nothing about history, as demonstrated by his endorsement of Tiger Woods for president.

History may bode well for a Tiger Woods presidential bid. In 1952, Dwight Eisenhower, then a popular former World War II general and Supreme Commander of Allied forces in Europe, cruised to victory with 83 percent of the electoral vote over political insider Adlai Stevenson, the Democratic governor of Illinois.

(Because winning The Masters is every bit as impressive as successfully invading France and Germany during WWII.)

If nothing else, judge him by his supporters.

She says she has known him for 12 years and he’s “never been anything but a gentlemen – and I am not an unattractive woman.”

[Lori] Klein suggested that if Cain is innocent he should sue White for libel and went on to attack the media for digging up the allegations. She also said that in politics, “we want a virgin to do a hooker’s job.”

Klein is a state senator from Arizona notorious for carrying her raspberry-pink gun around the Capitol and pointing it at a reporter’s face. She is the new front-runner for the GOP nomination.

I wonder if she knows China already has nukes.

Georgia’s stupidest doctor strikes again

Paul Broun, who repeatedly compared Obama to Hitler and says ignorant things every time he opens his mouth, stays true to form.

If Michele Bachmann was a man.

Cut, Cap and Balance also would have raised the debt ceiling, which is why Broun opposed it, his spokeswoman Meredith Griffanti said.

“He’s actually not going to vote for any bill that raises the debt ceiling,” she

Broun, in fact, introduced legislation to lower the debt ceiling.

What does it take to embarrass the voters of Athens, Evans, Augusta, Watkinsville, and Toccoa? They’ve sent Broun to Congress twice before and most likely will again in 2012.

Another trial w/o jury by the queer establishment?

Atlanta Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell is accused of some boorish, ignorant remarks, for which he’s apologized — sort of.

Calling them anti-gay slurs, as I did in an article about the incident yesterday, may be a bit much. “Are you a  homo couple or a threesome?” McDowell allegedly said before using a bat to imitate a sex act. Derisive, no doubt, but I’ve heard worse. I find it more troubling that McDowell is accused of threatening a fan, though I’d like to hear from some witnesses.

Not surprisingly, gay rights groups have already convicted McDowell. A Georgia Voice reporter thinks he should be fired. Why wait to hear all the evidence? It’s just a man’s livelihood.

The Braves are also being tarred and feathered for one employee’s alleged outburst. In a letter to team president John Schuerholz, Georgia Equality demanded the entire Braves organization undergo sensitivity training. Why should Chipper Jones be punished (would you want to sit through sensitivity training) for something one of his coaches said? I find that offensive.

I’m also troubled by the linkage to John Rocker, a racist asshole without peer. McDowell is no Rocker. If he was, I’d be calling for his head.

With the  rush to judgment already underway I wonder if the queer establishment will pause to consider one gay fan’s opinion.

One man who rushed to McDowell’s defense in the fall-out Thursday was Jerry Pritikin, 74, a long-time Cubs fan, who used to interact with McDowell from the bleachers at Wrigley Field in the 1980s when McDowell pitched for the Mets. He also happens to be gay.

“Being openly gay, I understand why some people would be disturbed, as I was,” Pritikin said. “But he made an apology and I accept that.”

Pritikin said he got to know McDowell personally during exchanges back and forth from the bleachers. The two used to throw Frisbee.

“He’s been such a good guy,” Pritikin said. “He always had fun with people in the bleachers, no matter what ballpark he was in, but because Chicago had such a great bleacher crowd, they really looked forward to him coming whenever he came to town. He was truly a great entertainer.”

Pritikin voiced his support of McDowell in an e-mail to Selig Thursday. He’d written Selig in recent years after anti-gay comments by former Cub Julian Tavarez and former Brave John Rocker, but those e-mails were much more critical, he said.

“I could understand someone who would not have known of Roger’s career or his antics at the ballpark might consider, ‘Well this is another hot-headed person,’” Pritikin said. “The other two guys were definitely prejudiced in what they were saying. I don’t believe Roger is that kind of guy.”

I’m not saying McDowell shouldn’t be punished or even fired. But he deserves a fair hearing.

The Nick Riviera of academics

Discredited smear merchant Dr. Jerome Corsi, writing for the far-right birther web site World Nut Daily, claims domestic terrorist Bill Ayers has has once again suggested he was the author of Barack Obama’s celebrated autobiography.

Ayers’ sarcasm is obvious if you watch the clip, but why let the truth get in the way of another conspiracy theory.
