The Secret of Gingrich’s Success: Hating Liberals

By: Wednesday November 30, 2011 2:15 pm

Whether Herman Cain is actually reassessing his campaign or not, he’s done on the Presidential stage. And the data show that the biggest beneficiary of this is Newt liberal-hater Gingrich.


The negotiations with FoxNews and Regnery must have gone well…

By: Wednesday November 30, 2011 1:30 am

NOTE: The situation at various #Occupy locations is still being covered here. The entire purpose of Herman Cain’s candidacy — making money on the right-wing punditry circuit — has pretty much been fulfilled. So why not get out? It all depends on when the most profitable time of departure is, and whether there is a [...]

The Fringe Primary

How do you spot the fringe candidate when they’re ALL fringe candidates?

Logic, not their strong suit

Herman Cain was once — as hard as it is to believe — was once the front-runner for the GOP nomination. And considering that his biggest accomplishment was dropping hints while conducting job interviews that is quite a fact, in and of itself.

But there’s a reason he had the right-stuff for the Right-wing and that was his comfort with saying two completely contradictory things in adjoining sentences.

One of Our National Nightmares Is in Abeyance

By: Wednesday November 23, 2011 1:30 am

Good news everyone…there isn’t another Republican Presidential Debate for you to follow through the posting of horrific quotes for more than two weeks. Apparently the candidates will be busy fighting the War on Chanukah (“C” vs. No “C”) amongst other things — although I’m just going to throw it out there and say Rick Santorum [...]

Newt Gingrich Would Beat Mitt Romney in Head to Head Match Up

By: Tuesday November 22, 2011 8:00 am

Another major national poll by Quinnipiac found that Newt Gingrich leads among national Republican and Republican leaning independents with 26 percent of the vote followed by Mitt Romney at 22 percent and Herman Cain at 14 percent. Gingrich would also beat Romney in a head to head match up.

GOP Poll: Gingrich Now Tops the Field, Cain Falling Fast

By: Monday November 21, 2011 8:45 am

The most recent USA Today/Gallup poll finds that Newt Gingrich has shot to the top of the Republican field and that Herman Cain is now bleeding support. This confirms that as Cain’s support fell, Gingrich, the latest not-Mitt, was the primary beneficiary. Romney remains stuck in the 20s.

Herman Cain Would ‘Overturn’ SCOTUS if It Struck Down DOMA

By: Sunday November 20, 2011 7:00 pm

I am so tired of stoopid-infused hate. On Saturday, Bob Vander Plaats hosted his so-called “Thanksgiving Family Forum” along with fellow bigots The National Organization for Marriage, and CitizenLink (Focus on the Family), where we got another chance to see the GOP Clown Car act pious in front of the fringe they need to survive the Republican primary in 2012.

It’s not surprising that NOM president Brian Brown asked those present (notably Romney and Huntsman passed on attending) what action they would take if the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), ruling it unconstitutional.

Late Night FDL: Race to the Bottom (of the Well of Crazy)

By: Friday November 18, 2011 8:00 pm

As you’ve perhaps already heard, Cain today chose to tackle head-on the questions raised by his obvious brain freeze when asked about Libya earlier this week (see the video above: “OK… Libya… President Obama… supported the uprising, correct?”). Unfortunately, the results suggest that Cain’s damage-control strategies haven’t improved since the previous weeks’ allegations of sexual harassment.

Obama’s Advantage: People Like Him, Unlike the GOP Candidates

By: Thursday November 17, 2011 4:37 pm

Official unemployment is at 9 percent. According to Pew, President Obama’s overall job approval rating is an anemic 46% approve – 46% disapprove, and his job approval on the economy is a dreadful 35% approve – 58% disapprove. These are terrible fundamentals that should make an incumbent President vulnerable, but according to Pew, Obama holds a two-point lead against Mitt Romney and is beating Rick Perry, Herman Cain, and Newt Gingrich by double digits.
