The Democratic Party’s character assassins can cut another notch in their gun. It looks like they have done it again, judges Pickering and Bork, candidates Palin and Cain all maliciously, viciously, personally and successfully attacked. That’s not the full list, to be sure.
This time the Democrats may have shot themselves in the foot. Cain would have vulnerabilities in the general election. He is weak on foreign policy and has no experience in government. Killing Cain cleared the way for Newt Gingrich to represent the conservative faction within the Republican Party. It would do my heart good to see Cain win the nomination but Gingrich is the stronger candidate.
A note to Michelle: I was always proud of my country until your husband became President. And I will be proud again when he’s not.
