    CAIN: I don’t have facts to back this up, but I happen to believe that these demonstrations are planned and orchestrated to distract from the failed policies of the Obama administration. Don’t blame Wall Street, don’t blame the big banks, if you don’t have a job and you’re not rich, blame yourself! [...] It is not someone’s fault if they succeeded, it is someone’s fault if they failed.

    ANALYSIS: Cain’s ’999′ Plan Would Cause Largest Deficits Since WWII, While Increasing Taxes For Most Americans

    [...]

    – For the income tax portion: In 2007, total Adjusted Gross Income on all income tax returns was $8.7 trillion. Since Cain’s plan would exempt investment income, but would have no other deductions, that brings taxable income down to $7.4 trillion. A flat 9 percent tax would therefore have yielded about $665 billion in income tax revenue.

    – For the corporate tax portion: In 2007, there was a total of $1.3 trillion in reported corporate income subject to tax. A flat 9 percent would have yielded $112 billion in revenue.

    – For the sales tax portion: I used generally accepted estimates of the revenue generated from a value-added-tax (see here and here, for example). Those estimates suggest that a broad-based 5 percent tax on goods and services would generate about 2 percent of GDP in revenue. That implies that a 9 percent tax in 2007 would have generated about $500 billion.

    – Together, then, the 9-9-9 plan would have generated a bit less than $1.3 trillion in total federal tax revenue. That may sound like a lot, but it’s only 9.2 percent of GDP. In 2007, we actually collected 18.5 percent of GDP in tax revenue. In other words, the 9-9-9 plan would cut federal revenue in half!

    I just can't understand why people support these douchebags.

    Is it Fox? Is it the result of slowly killing public education? Is it corporate propaganda?

    All this pains me so.

    Pizza Magnate Herman Cain Has Extensive Ties To Powerful Koch Group

    IOWA CITY, Iowa — Republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain has cast himself as the outsider, the pizza magnate with real-world experience who will bring fresh ideas to the nation's capital. But Cain's economic ideas, support and organization have close ties to two billionaire brothers who bankroll right-leaning causes through their group Americans for Prosperity.

    [...]


    And if you saw MTP this morning, Cain proved what a simpleton he is.

    Herman Cain Sings an Ode to Pizza

    Imagine a John Lennon song with pizza-oriented lyrics subbed in. Now, imagine the man singing is the GOP frontrunner. It’s the video Herman Cain doesn’t want you to see ... and for good reasons. It's a Herman Cain Pizza Jam!

    I can honestly say I think this is probably what I like most about Herman Cain. I disagree with his politics and world view, of course. I don't like his arrogant ignorance. (Or is that ignorant arrogance?) I'm no fan of his singing or the lyrics here, but really I DO like that he's willing to be silly and campy.

    Agreed. I always enjoyed Bob Dole's sense of humor but disliked his politics. He was one of the few republicans that I could listen to without my blood pressure going sky high. He was civil, if nothing else.

    I Remember when Vanilla Ice said the same thing about Milli Vanilli.

    Also did ya ever notice that if you turn 999 upside down you get the sign of the dark one? I think someone should point that out to evangelical, snake charming, chinless people who should not be allowed an opinion. A vote? Maybe. An opinion? Not while I talk faster and louder than them.

    Michele Bachman pointed out the 666 in the debate. She would know - she is a witch. Or is that bitch? Either way...

    Dan Savage Challenges Herman Cain To Prove Being Gay Is 'A Choice'... By Performing Oral Sex On Him

    [...]

    In response to Cain's comments, Savage offered him the chance to prove that homosexuality is in fact a choice, writing on The Stranger's Slog blog:


    Dear Herman,

    If being gay is a choice, show us the proof. Choose it. Choose to be gay yourself. Show America how that's done, Herman, show us how a man can choose to be gay. Suck my dick, Herman. Name the time and the place and I'll bring my dick and a camera crew and you can suck me off and win the argument.
    Very sincerely yours,

    Dan Savage


    Savage also noted that Cain is insulting straight people as well gay people when he claims that one's sexuality is something that is chosen. "Straight people should get angry when they hear a straight person making this argument," he wrote.

    One more reason to love Mr. Savage.

    Oh, and BTW, in case you've forgotten, the LCR's were one of the prime movers in getting Congress to repeal DADT, but then again, you probably don't want people knowing that kind of info, do you!
