Herman Cain leads nationally . . .

Former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain leads the Republican presidential primary field with 30 percent, followed by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney with 23 percent, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich with 10 percent and Texas Gov. Rick Perry with 8 percent, the independent Quinnipiac University poll finds.

MSM—we may have to hear what you report on, but it’s obvious that we are NOT LISTENING!!!! :-)

(Time to donate again to the Cain campaign!)

Hope they keep this up!

The MSM’s so called “scandal” is stealing all the oxygen from the their chosen front runner Rino Romney!

Next we are going to hear that Cain got drunk and tried pot in college.

Did he ever getting a parking ticket?

I bet he once cut the tag off of a matress too.

Cain still doesn’t have the 85% approval rating that Bill Clinton had during Monica Gate. But of course, Herman Cain isn’t the type of character who would rape government employees either...and he’s not a Democrat.

What they do not understand is that Cain, regardless of politics, is very likeable. It is just human nature to want to defend someone like that, especially when the slams are so obviously frivolous and malevolent.

“He must be crossing his fingers for a Watergate or Teapot Dome!”

He’d have to be president first. Maybe an accusation of rape would put him over the top, a la someone else we know.

When you are prominent, you want to keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

Last night my wife said she doesn’t care if Cain DID hit no the woman and paid her off. It was a confidential settlement so nothing he says can be proven to be a lie. Clinton admitted to lying.

Cain is who gets my vote at the top of the ticket. If he’s not there, I don’t vote.

The money and support is pouring in for Herman Cain, but we cannot slow down now. Please help him by donating at http://www.hermancain.com/

Also to help join the buzz about Herman go to facebook.com and “like” him. In just the last week he has jumped 13% or 42000 with an impressive 10,000 in the last 24 hours. Make no mistake Karl Rove is watching Herman’s “likes” and so is Romney who gained just 1500 since last Tuesday. THIS is the way to stick it to the GOP establishment! Please tell your family and friends to “like” Herman as well.

It’s backfiring on them, as it did with Clarence Thomas.

What they did to Thomas was no backfire...he was confirmed by the skin of his teeth 52-48 ... it was a near-catastrophe...

But he was confirmed. If Cain wins 52-48, we’ll consider that a win, not a near-disaster.

This current scandal is small potatos! Have you looked real close at the Zapruter film? I’m pretty sure that Herman Cain was on the Grassy Knoll!
