I really hope…

…that Herman Cain is being misquoted here, because if he’s not, well…let’s just say one of the commenters put it best that he’s just another Al Sharpton. I honestly would expect better from someone like Cain than to engage in such shameless race-baiting.

I will admit to the possibility, though, that Cain’s words are being twisted to make what he’s saying about this much worse than it is. It’s entirely within the realm of possibility, considering that the Washington Post ran the story about the epithet on the rock in the first place — anonymous sources, no pictures and all. The fact that they’d do such, though, leads me to only one conclusion:

Rick Perry must be scaring them shitless.

    Well, like I said, I listened to him fill in for Boortz many, many times over the years & never heard any pandering or race-baiting out of him, & his position on gun rights has already been lied about by the Left, so I’m disinclined to take a context-free quote at face value..

    The way I hear it is they kinda sprung it on him and he apparently didn’t know the story. So from his standpoint, it sounds insensitive, to say the least. But I also hear that it was painted over the first time they got there and saw it. The left is trying to make it sound as if it was on the rock for years while Perry was going out there, rather than it having been painted over from the beginning. If they told the truth, there’d be no story.

    “If they told the truth, there’d be no story.”

    …which pretty much accounts for 99% of what gets reported these days.

    Cain seems reflexively statist, as seen in his comments about gun control and banning mosques. And, of course, he liked TARP. I’ll pass on him. I’d like to hear more from Gary Johnson, but he doesn’t seem to have a chance.
