But here’s an open thread for ya.
ITA with this commenter at
L.N. Smithee -As a fellow black conservative, nobody wanted to believe there was more to Cain than met the eye more than I did. The first two alleged settlements didn’t necessarily mean much. Sharon Bialek was the typical Allred foil — a worldly woman who has made big honking mistakes and should have known better, but who wants to blame everybody but herself. When Karen Kraushaar decided she didn’t want anyone asking why she asked for a JFK School of Business scholarship as settlement for a separate harassment claim, the whole distraction was dissolving into thin air.
Then, came the bombshell. No, not Ginger White; Cain’s brain freeze when it came to Libya. His sneer about not needing to know the king of “Bekibekistanstan” was troubling, but not fatal; his inability to articulate what his problem with Obama’s Libya policy was.
Ginger was icing on the cake, especially when he asserted that even though he gave her money, and they had a longtime “friendship” his wife was in the dark about the entire time, there was no sex. That crossed over into Clinton territory. The whole thing became a circus when Cain would announce that he was going to talk to his wife. What kinda BS is that, when the guy is treating a meeting with his spouse as if it’s an international summit?
I’m done with Cain. Maybe he and Mark Sanford could open up a pizza chain in Argentina.
Also, color me MEGA disappointed in Glenn Beck over this brain fart. As reported at Legal Insurrection:
Beck played the race card not only on Newt, but on me, and on you. How dare he say that my choice of Newt over Obama is a racial decision. Beck calls Newt a “progressive,” but Beck is a race card player, and unlike his accusations that Newt is a progressive, the title fits.
Right Scoop, which does not support Newt, reacts as I do:
I know Newt has his problems which is why he isn’t my primary candidate. And if you don’t support him in the primaries I totally understand. But to say he’s exactly like Obama, and on top of that, to say that a Tea Party member is racist for supporting Newt over Obama, that is absolutely absurd and in my opinion enough for me to discontinue watching Beck in any format, forever.
Abortion clinics slapped with huge fines
Similar cases in Michigan resulted in little more than some tut-tutting and slaps on the wrist, but Texas stepped up! The Texas Commission on Environment Quality has fined two Texas abortion businesses with fines in excess of $83,000 for illegal dumping of the remains of aborted babies.
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held the hearing on the Obama Administration’s decision not to renew Bush Administration funding for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) program that provided medical and mental health services to more than 2,700 survivors of human sex trafficking. The 5-year funding is running out soon and the pro-abortion Obama administration recently notified the USCCB it would not be renewed, because of the Catholic program’s ban on abortion funding and/or referral.
Newt Gingrich issued an official statement about his position on abortion
“As I have stated many times throughout the course of my public life, I believe that human life begins at conception. I believe that every unborn life is precious, no matter how conceived. I also believe that we should work for the day when there will be no abortions for any reason, and that every unborn child will be welcomed into life and protected by law.…That is why I have supported, and will continue to support, pro-life legislation that not only limits, but also reduces, the total number of abortions, with a view to the eventual legal protection of all unborn human life.”
He also said that, if he becomes the GOP nominee and defeats pro-abortion President Barack Obama, he will implement a pro-life agenda immediately after being sworn in as president.
This is the man who constantly tells us he will not rest until yada yada is solved, then immediately skips out to play golf and/or take yet another vacation.

I think we’re still seeing a hesitation among Americans to criticize the first black president.
Check out how bad his approvals are when you consider the answer to these questions. He OWNS the health care bill and the economy.
The new health care law requires all Americans who can afford it to have some form of health insurance or else pay a penalty. Can you think of any circumstances where the federal government should be able to require Americans to buy something whether they want it or not?
Yes, I can 24%
No, I can’t 73%
Don’t Know 3%
On a scale of excellent, good, only fair and poor, how would you rate economic conditions today?
Good 5% < Methinks these folks are a few fries short of a Toyless Happy Meal!
Only fair 28%
Don’t Know 0% < It is very unusual to see ZERO Don’t know!
