All day I’ve had stories cross my RSS Reader about last night’s GOP candidates’ debate in South Carolina and just about every one of them could be headlined “Herman Cain Mysteriously Wins Debate With Mysterious Powers of Mystery. Also, He Can’t Win Anything.” With each story, I’ve gotten more and more irritated at how quickly [...]

Fox News is hosting a debate of erstwhile Republican candidates in South Carolina tomorrow and my favorite, Herman Cain, will be there. Joining him will be Tim Pawlenty, Ron Paul, Gary Johnson, and Rick Santorum — admittedly not the crop of front-runners Fox had anticipated when they scheduled this debate, but that’s what you get [...]

I endorse every word of Moe Lane’s blog post to ABC News. It is April of 2011.  We do not actually need to have everybody and his/her brother/sister declaring for the freaking Republican nomination, simply because Barack Obama needed to declare as early as possible that he was running so that he can get a head [...]

But they announced this morning that the debate was moving to September because of concerns that not enough [...]

Some days I’m all about the politics and some days I’m not. Lately, I haven’t really been feeling like a political animal. Unlike many of my friends, politics isn’t my meat and drink. I don’t live it every day. I’m surrounded by co-workers who think very rarely about politics, except they’ve been thinking about it [...]

I had the chance to sit in tonight on a blogger conference call with potential 2012 Presidential candidate Herman Cain. It shouldn’t surprise any long-time readers of The Shack when I say I’m a fan of Cain’s as a candidate and as a person. Though he has yet to announce his candidacy, he has formed [...]

If you follow conservative politics even a little, you know that NJ Governor Chris Christie is a rock star. Over the past year or so, his name continues to come up as a real contender for the  White House in 2012. The only problem is, he’s repeatedly and forcefully said he won’t run. That hasn’t stopped [...]
