‘Can’t Never Could’

Posted on | October 12, 2011 | 6 Comments

“In a David-vs.-Goliath situation, you don’t start by trying to calculate the odds of success, because the odds are liable to be so daunting as to inspire helpless despair.
“But let me ask you this: What were Herman Cain’s odds in 2006, when the doctors diagnosed him with Stage 4 cancer? Think about that before you say Cain can’t win.
“As my father used to tell me, ‘Can’t never could.’ ”

    The press so far for Cain after this most recent debate looks great.

    Even though not many people watched the debate, all the headlines are about Herman Cain and his economic plan.  Not all of it is positive…however,  most of the articles are either positive or straightforward….which is great news for HC.

    But how could anyone be for Ron Paul and be sober?

    Well, stupid is another choice, I guess.

    Doctor Demento does have his moments.  Listening to Ron Paul is like reading Lyndon LaRouche–occasional but brief clarity mixed into a soup of how the Queen of England and the Pope are running a secret cabal.

    Cain can win.  I hope he does. 

    I suspect Romney will walk away with this, but I hope Cain keeps swinging for the fences.

    Supporting Ron Paul is the political equivalent of trying to calm a paranoid schizophrenic by shouting his delusions back at him.  Eventually you start to slip into their world.

    I had a schizophrenic roommate once and experienced this firsthand.   It’s a self-inflicted Stockholm experience.   No one should encourage someone like Paul; it just ain’t healthy.
