Cain Press Conference: Good Enough For The Wingnuts

Herman Cain, like Sarah Palin, doesn’t really want to be president — but he does want to keep riding the publicity train. On those terms, his press conference tonight was a smashing success. It gives him a rhetorical template to draw upon whenever a new female accuser rears her ugly head. Liberal media. Democratic conspiracies. Racism. “I simply don’t recall”. He can spew this stuff for months and satisfy the only people who really matter to him — teabaggers.

As I said before, among Republican presidential candidates, Cain is the last wingnut standing. If he crashes and burns, it’s all Romney, all the time. And the Party isn’t quite ready for that — yet.
