    Are Time and Mark Halperin Racist? Herman Cain Omitted Twice in GOP Oddsmaking
    Twice in the last two weeks has Time magazine devoted a page to Mark Halperin's oddsmaking on who will be the Republican nominee -- the May 23 issue (page 35) and the June 6 issue (page 16). Twice, there's been no mention of Herman Cain. The GOP cast of contenders is lily-white. This seems odd, since Cain participated in the first presidential debate on May 5 to high praise and formally announced on May 21. Are Time and Halperin racists? They can't say they're unaware that Cain is running.

    They can't say that Cain is too much of a long shot. In the first set of odds, Halperin put Michele Bachmann at 1,000-to-1. (The best odds in order were to Romney, Huckabee, Daniels, Pawlenty, Huntsman, Gingrich, and Palin, second to last at 60 to 1.) In the second set, Huckabee and Daniels were removed from the list, and Santorum (at 500 to 1) and Ron Paul (at 2,000 to 1) were added. Bachmann was still at 1,000 to 1. Halperin also added "Mystery Candidate" -- but named those (Rick Perry, Chris Christie, Paul Ryan, and Jeb Bush.)

    Time magazine should really have to explain this remarkable (double) oversight of a black Republican.​

    Interesting. Is Time engaging in magical thinking: "If I don't look at it, it's not there!"?

    Evidence that denial isn't a river in Eygpt? Possibly. It kinda blows that whole 'republicans are racist' thing out of the water... and that is a truth that the left do not like.

    Indeed. When reality and leftist memes conflict, reality must be discarded.

    Herman Cain out-polled all other Republican candidates in a Georgia poll...even the goofy Newt Gingrinch, a fellow Georgian and former Speaker of the House!

    Herman Cain is a successful business man and former CEO...tells it like it is...knows how to make wise decisions based on business principles rather than cronyism...something that we need at the helm of this country.

    Go Herman!

    The Dems and their liberal media should be very afraid of the Republicans nominating a "plantation" black man that succeeded quite well on his own efforts rather than have positions handed to him by a grooming board of handlers.

    They may ignore him for some time, but not for long.

    He may become our first real black President!

    As far as I can see he also omitted announced Republican candidate Gary Johnson.

    I was under the impression he's white. :lol:

    So then Halperin is just stupid.

    Okay, thanks. Cleared that up.

    He omitted Mickey Mouse as well. I guess he left out the ones who didn't have a snowballs chance in hell of getting the nod.

    Herman Cain has no shot of being the Republican nominee.

    Yes because you are so insightful. That is such a stupid thing to say.

    Where was Obama this time in the election in 2008. Who would have thought someone name Barak Hussien Obama would get elected.

    But hey haters gonna hate.
