Herman Cain Suspends Campaign (Video)

Via Atlanta AP:

Herman Cain announced today that he is  suspending his bid for the Republican presidential nomination to avoid news coverage that is hurtful to his family.

Cain’s announcement came five days after an Atlanta-area woman claimed she and Cain had an affair for more than a decade, a claim that followed several allegations of sexual harassment against the Georgia businessman. Cain, whose wife stood behind him on the stage, made the announcement before several hundred supporters gathered at what was to have been the opening of his national campaign headquarters.

Say he reassessed the impact the allegations (which he repeatedly denied) have had on his family and this was best for them. He wouldn’t be able to raise enough funds.

He says he won’t be “silenced and won’t be going away”.

RS McCain provides further analysis:

Cain will still be on the ballot in several states. He could, if he chose, resume the campaign at some future point, but in general, “suspend = quit.”

The good news? J.D. Gordon is now unemployed.

More good news? My “sources close to the campaign” can now speak on the record about who was responsible for screwing up.

Frankly, I think Cain himself, screwed up.

Saturday Movie Matinee: Rush Takes Manhattan

Rush Takes Manhattan: A Magical Night in New York:

#OWS tried to protest Rush? Who knew…

RUSH:  We had a great time in New York last night.  It was at Town Hall, which is just off Broadway.  Mine was the first sold-out Broadway show of the season.  I forget what the capacity of the place is.  It’s a beautiful place.  It is a stunningly beautiful place. During the day on Monday my security people called up and said, “Hey, the Occupy people have applied for a protest permit across the street.”  I said, “Okay,” and about ten minutes later, “The Occupy people have applied for an audio sound permit along with the protest permit,” meaning they wanted to have megaphones and a PA system to shout.  “Okay,” ’cause I’m not gonna hear any of it.  So they showed up, and I guess there were about ten of ’em.  The original application for their permits said there would be a hundred of them, ten of them showed up.  (interruption)  Was it 15?  We had some people out there looking, 15 of them.

We had to delay the start of the show by a half hour because it was raining cats and dogs in New York, and the crowd arrived late, and I vowed not to start ’til everybody was seated.  It was supposed to be a 7:30 curtain, and I kicked off at about eight because the stragglers were coming in.  Heck, I had a little flight delay getting in because of the weather.  But it turned out fine because the 10 or 15 people that showed up, they got a shower.  It was the first time they probably had been clean in how many weeks?  You know, God works in magical, mysterious ways.  And one of them got in, one of them got in and walked right down the center aisle.  I was in the middle of the presentation.  It was a skinhead kind of guy, he walked in and security didn’t touch him.  He got within five feet of me.  So if you have any ideas of taking me out, folks, it can be done.  (laughing)
So this guy gets within five feet and he’s got a bunch of newspapers and he’s showing them. Finally security showed up and escorted him out, and they told me he was a little intoxicated when the whole thing was over.
