Sound Bite For The Day: Smoke And Fire

The last thing I heard about Herman Cain was that he’s considering getting out of the race. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire — and there’s generally two media people rubbing sticks together to create the smoke.”

Some conservatives believe that the entire thing — even down to the phone records produced by the last accuser, Ginger White, were nothing but a media set up. Others content that Cain was fading fast before the stories broke as he struggled to defend his 9-9-9 plan from the criticisms over its VAT potential; his foreign policy answers were the weakest part of his campaign. Cain likely would have weathered this storm (better) had he presented stronger policy. The media can’t exactly claim this scalp.
