Saturday, all family all the time open thread

It’s been all family all the time here, except for time I’ve carved out to get my hair done (and, thank you for saying so, I do indeed look lovely) and to do legal work.

I know that it’s a bit late to start an Open Thread, but I figured, “What the hey?”  So, open thread away should you so desire.

    Woohoo Herman Cain!

    That’s all I have…

    Defense No. 1:

    Racist conservatives would never support a black man running for president.

    Defense No. 2:

    The “black” man conservatives are supporting is an Uncle Tom. He is not authentically black.

    Defense No. 3:

    So what if Herman Cain released his college transcripts? What’s that supposed to prove?

    Defense No. 4:

    Like Clarence Thomas, President Cain is obviously a tool of his reactionary white masters.

    Cheesestick, I agree, a great day for Herman Cain!

    (I assume you’re talking about Herman Cain winning the Florida GOP straw poll today, Saturday, with 37% of its vote.)

    Herman Cain – 37%
    Rick Perry – 15%
    Mitt Romney – 14%
    Rick Santorum – 11%
    Ron Paul – 10%
    Newt Gingrich – 8%
    Jon Hunstman – 2% 
    Michelle Bachmann – 2%

    Rick Perry competed aggressively for the vote.  Mitt Romney’s campaign team chooses to ignore straw polls.
    Ron Paul’s enthusiastic support base usually means he performs very well in straw polls.  Not this time.

    The strength of Herman Cain’s win is remarkable.  I think he and his team have spent a lot of time in Florida, and that is where Thursday’s debate was held, as well.  He may be hoping to survive Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, and make his stand in Florida.  Heck, maybe this straw poll win will help his “no-nonsense, straight-talk” message catch on.

    I personally don’t like primaries. Just have a national vote, sans Democrat infiltrators, on who the popular peeps are.

    Herman would drive libs more into the totally insane ranks. I’m all for it!  
    Go Herman!
    Beat Barry!
    Rah, Rah, Rah!


    I think we need a bumper sticker contest…
    Beat Barry with a CAIN

    I would love to see Herman Cain win, but I am realistic.  It could happen though, especially now more than ever.  But mainly I’m am just glad that he proved the media and all the talkers wrong.  The race has only just begun but they want to pick the nominee and tie this whole thing up and put a bow on it already.  We need to slow it down.  Even if Cain doesn’t win, his ideas & plans still need to get out to a wider audience than just the base that already follow him.

    Sadie, that was actually pretty violent. Which is perhaps why I like it.

    Ymar #4: I personally don’t like primaries. Just have a national vote, sans Democrat infiltrators, on who the popular peeps are.

    Primaries, caucuses, political parties… none of that is required nor in the Constitution.  Them’r just good ol Democrat and Republican Political Party Rulez.

    The trouble is, third party or non-party candidates in the national vote have never been able to gain any significant vote tallies whatsoever.

    Rules are made to be broken by the powerful.

    Went to the county fair.  Ate a corn dog, cheese steak, and deep-fried oreos.  It was all good until the second oreo.  Still, Elvis would be proud.
