Meanwhile, as I continue to wait for someone, anyone to either suck it up and break a disclosure agreement or shut the fuck up about Herman Cain...
At least the alleged sexual harassment Cain was purported to have possibly done, possibly to people, possibly at some point during his tenure at the National Restaurant Association, has not managed to damage his momentum, as he has maintained his lead in polls conducted after this "story" broke.
Didn't surprise me one bit that the White House refused to comply with a congressional subpoena for more documents regarding Solyndra. According to some Obama yeshole, the subpoena was "driven more by partisan politics than a legitimate effort to conduct a responsible investigation." Bullshit. I know it, you know it. If investigating a sweetheart deal worth half a billion dollars isn't responsible, then what the hell is? I need to wander over to Politifact and see if that "most transparent administration in history" shit has been given pants on fire status yet.
Mitt Romney has been taking shots at Rick Perry on illegal immigration via robocall in Iowa recently. Damn, I hate it when politicians resort to using one of the few things that irritates me more than illegal immigration to make statements about illegal immigration. Then again, here in my region, I'm surprised that David Williams hasn't resorted to "secret Hindu" robocalls as his gubernatorial campaign in Kentucky approaches the finish line Tuesday not at a gallop, but desperately sucking wind. That's going to be really depressing to me that Jerry Abramson is going to wind up Lieutenant Governor because of the least likable GOP gubernatorial ticket in Kentucky history.
