I rarely write topical posts, but the sad, delusional kabuki theater that is the Republican nomination process has been grating on my sanity for a while now, and Cain’s impressively delusional notion that the sexual harrassment accusations against him are part of a “Democrat1 Machine” conspiracy finally tripped my wire.
First off, I don’t know if the accusations are true or not, and neither does anybody but the accusers and Cain himself.
But Cain is an arrogant clown with his unworkable, unrealistic and underhanded 9-9-9 plan. That he’s a frontrunner for the post of President of the United States is like a bad Fellini movie.
As a matter of fact he’s such a clown that the White House would be giddy at the prospect of Obama facing him in the 2012 election. But they’re not giddy because they know there’s no way it’ll be Cain. The fix is in. Unless he gets caught walking naked down the street carrying the chopped-off head of a hooker, it’s Romney for the republicans in 2012 .
Why won’t it be Cain? Because Obama would stomp Cain like a bug. That’s just reality. Cain is a favorite of the ultra-right. He can’t turn around and make himself presentable to the middle of the political bell curve. The calculus is not difficult.
So, if this is a dirty tricks campaign, it’s a civil war. It’s the republican powers-that-be making sure the fix stays in.
If it’s a dirty tricks campaign. Again, we don’t know.
And with that I’m putting my headphones back on and going back to my attempts at forgetting this whole debacle is happening at all…

All Nic wants for WWDC is sync that actually works
Another book roundup, including some stellar athletes and soldiers, what might be the most jaded, soul-weary protagonist ever, and some grimdark fantasy.
The Internet is getting creepy, and Nic is breaking out his tinfoil hat after newspaper paywalls push him over the edge.
Nic is tired of tech sites obsessing over Apple’s financials and business strategy. So very tired.
Nic reads a book about the processed food industry and is incensed.
Computers are complicated. This brings out the irrational in people.
Nic proposes the loan word Rechthaberei be incorporated into American English.
The Core Dump is back! Books were read during the hiatus. Includes The Coldest Winter, Oh, Myyy!, Tough Sh*t, The Revolution Was Televised, The Rook, Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore, Gun Machine, Fortress Frontier, Standing in Another Man’s Grave, and The Memory of Light.
This site will return in February.
From a true patriot to a world-weary detective, a dead god, and a civilization about to sublime from the galaxy, this book roundup spans the gamut. Includes Where Men Win Glory, Wild, Inside the Box, The Black Box, Three Parts Dead, Red Country, and The Hydrogen Sonata.
