The One Percent

At this point, with a majority of American women going on local and national news programs to say they too have had sex with Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, it may be time for the Cain campaign to rethink its strategy.

For starters, the candidate needs a new pair of sunglasses. And a long black leather coat. And a theme song.

Can you dig it?


The Subtlety Business

Texas Representative Ted Poe (R) has proposed legislation that would require that 10 percent of military equipment being returned from Iraq be sent to communities along the U.S.-Mexico border for use in border security operations.

The proposal has drawn criticism from Mayor John Cook of El Paso, who has vigorously disputed assertions that his city, which sits across the border from Ciudad Ju├írez, is affected by the same violence that has plagued northern Mexico.
“I would invite them to come to El Paso and we can look at the inventory of equipment that’s coming back from Iraq and they can tell me where they’d want to locate this,” Cook said. “To me, it’s just showing a whole lot of ignorance.”
The mayor said moving war zone equipment to the border would send the wrong signal to Mexico and potentially damage the robust symbiotic economic relationship between the two countries. 


The Human Condition

In case you're not following along, in Wednesday's presidential debate, Republican candidate Rick Perry forgot the third of three government agencies he had previously said it was absolutely vital to downsize. "Commerce, Education, and what's the third one ... let's see ..." he said. [The third one was Energy.]

Perry later shrugged off the slip, suggesting it might even humanize him in the eyes of voters. The cyborg Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney is undoubtedly jealous.


Cain's Brain

Herman Cain, whom we can presume will not become known as The Foreign Policy President, if he is victorious on November 6, 2012, responded to an interviewer's question about a potential military threat from China by noting that China "is trying to develop nuclear capability."

He did not, however, mention any role that scientists from Ubeki-beki-beki-stan-stan might be playing in China's efforts to acquire nuclear weapons technology. Perhaps that's classified.


Cain Stain?

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain responded, finally, to accusations that he sexually harassed several women while he headed the National Restaurant Association (the other NRA) in the late 1990s. Cain's response, however, was less than emphatic. He said to reporters, "As I have been beat upon all day on this, I'm trying to think back to, well what could it have been?" He added, "I am unaware of any settlement. I hope it wasn't for much, because I didn't do anything."
