Quote of the Day

I'm not prepared to be a Herman Cain supporter yet - I fear, while his knowledge and expertise in the business universe is deep and diverse, his experience on the politics, government, international relations side is concerningly weak - but he does seem to reach a point in a conservative's soul that no other candidate out there can reach.

That being said, there is this to chuckle about.  From Dorothy Rabinowitz:
An early response to the Florida poll results [jf: Cain won in a landslide] came from a friend, historian Alan C. Kors, who observed in mock puzzlement: “So, the ‘Tea Party racists’ in a Republican straw poll chose the self-made black Herman Cain — mathematician and successful businessman — son of a cleaning woman and a janitor, as their choice of nominee for the presidency of the United States. Well! What a bigoted group, what a caste society!”
Yeah, those Cain supporters, Tea Partiers all, are surely a racist bunch.
