Not surprisingly, Cain quit the presidential race yesterday, stating that he was "suspending his campaign." He pointed to the cloud hanging over him from sexual misconduct allegations, as well as his inability to raise enough money to be competitive.
The Democrat media found a weak spot and exploited it for all it was worth, and succeeded in removing Cain from the race. They hanged him, but he provided the rope.
Note how the biased mainstream media operates in the realm of politics. They search earnestly for any kind of scandal or pseudo-scandal that they can exploit against Republican candidates but are generally silent and protective of Democrat candidates. Bill Clinton was a horn-dog on steroids, but his encyclopedic sexual peccadilloes were ignored by the mainstream press. Obama's radical and dope connections have also been ignored by the media.
A scandal is only a scandal if it is reported in the press, over and over again. A scandal is not a scandal if no one ever speaks or writes about it.
So who is the Tea Party pick for president now? Or does it matter? It appears we will be stuck with an establishment, big-government Republican, either Mitt (Socialized Medicine) Romney or Newt (Global Warming) Gingrich.
