One Sideshow Closes

Herman Cain “suspended” his presidential campaign today.

Jaws did not drop.

There are so many important problems in need of solutions in this country and around the world. It's troubling how much media attention was devoted to Cain and all of his "alleged" affairs. Journalists should know better, but they find the bread and circuses impossible to resist. Before tossing his hat into the race, Cain had to know he was never a viable presidential candidate. He’s been in it just to raise his profile and to profit from it down the road. He owes all of us an apology for wasting our time and serving up adulterous chum to the media.

Not to mention the apology he owes his beleaguered wife Gloria.

Herman Cain makes a lot of money travelling and giving motivational speeches and selling books. During his campaign he's continued to give motivational speeches for a fee and selling books. Basically his campaign has been a book tour.

There's still the absurdity of Donald Trump. Can any candidate who pow-wows with Trump be taken seriously? 'Moderating' a 'debate'? To call it a clown show is an insult to clowns.

Seriously? Sounds like a soap opera more than politics. Wait, that's the same thing over here... our president has something like 5 wives and 22 kids. He's got fiances and love children. He's friends with Robert Mugabi (Zimbabwe). He's been in court on charges of RAPE and CORRUPTION and yet, there he sits...

Seems like maybe Cain just applied in the wrong country, that's all.

Sympathies to his wife though, she must be so embarrassed...
