Suggestion for Mr. Cain: Fire whoever it was on your staff who left me off the conference call to which Robert Costa was invited:
“Over the next several days, we are going to continue with the schedule as usual,” he said. “I’ve got a major speech tonight at Hillsdale College on national security and foreign policy and I will deliver it with vim, vigor, and enthusiasm. And then tomorrow we’ve got some media appearances scheduled. So we’re going to continue until we complete our assessment over the next several days.”
“But if a decision is made, different than to plow ahead, you all will be the first to know,” he said. “So until that time, I want to continue to thank you all for your support, thank you for your prayers. It’s taken an emotional toll, but the people in the audience tonight will never know it.”
Accusations by hyper-litigious bankrupt divorceés? No biggie.
Leaving me off a key conference call? That could be serious trouble.
I’ve got to go get a pack of smokes and cool my temper.
Maybe some updates after that.
UPDATE: OK, got my smokes, plus cheeseburgers, fries and a Hershey almond bar — comfort food, which I needed badly, as well as a cup of decaf coffee. Thanks to Don Surber for the link, as well as to Jeff Goldstein at Protein Wisdom, who says:
Time to wake up, people. Bachmann is still out there. So is Santorum. And both of them would whip Obama in any debate.
Made a few phone calls while I was out. Thanks to all the friends whose ears I blistered with my rants. I needed to vent.
Maybe I need a nap now.
