    Kudos to Jon Stewart..

    Cain voters are leaving in droves and switching their support to Newt Gingrich. They are so shocked that Cain would cheat on his wife that they are changing their allegiance to someone who cheated on two wives

    of course...Cain was their token blacl man so they can say" see we're not racist". He never had any shot at winning the Grand Old white Party.

    Does that make Gingrich TWICE as good and TWICE as worthy of their support? So much for family values. :eusa_eh:

    When I first heard of supporters 'flocking' to Gingrich after becoming disillusioned with Cain's indiscretions and his apparent lack of self-control in his personal life and the subsequent lying (some would say bald-faced lying) in an effort to keep his candidacy afloat, I wasn't at all surprised that they wanted to support a different candidate.

    But Gingrich? Gingrich served for years as a politician who tried to win at any and all costs and then cashed in on his name and influence in the many years after he left office. And in both of those roles, Gingrich is a considerabbly more accomplished liar and a far more amoral person in an average day than Cain has ever been on his worst day.

    Uh, no. That's not why Cain is being abandoned at all.

    Cain is being abandoned because he's showing he's not up to the task. It's not just the fact that he completely fumbled his handling of this issue. It's that he doesn't seem to be up on key facts.

    And Newt is more knowledgable, more expereinced and a more solid campaigner.

    I've said it before. Cain was a "none of the above" ballot until someone proved themselves worthy. Someone has.

    Gingrich has been caught at doing much worse that Cain has been caught doing.

    Who knows which is worse?

    What blows my mind is that anyone would ever even consider hiring either of these two morally bankrupt jerks as President of the United States.

    Come to think of it, I keep thinking the same thing about the rest of the Clown Car Candidates as well.

    WHY can't the GObP/pubs/baggers come up with even one decent human being who has some sort of qualification for the office?
