Last Stop of the Day: Now-former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain announced the suspension of his campaign today in a speech punctuated by a repeat recitation of Donna Summer’s “The Power of One” — a quote he acknowledged for the first time was plucked from Pokémon: The Movie 2000.
The decision to suspend his run for the nation’s highest office comes amid mounting allegations of sexual misconduct and extramarital affairs.
“I am suspending my presidential campaign because of the continued distraction,” Cain told supporters in Atlanta. “[N]ot because we are not fighters, not because I am not a fighter.”
Prior to the announcement, Cain sent mixed signals about his intentions, arriving in Atlanta — hometown of his latest accuser, Ginger White — to attend the scheduled opening of a local campaign headquarters.
The Guardian reporter Richard Adams points out that the significance of suspension versus withdrawal is not semantic: “Suspending his campaign…means Cain can still collect Federal matching funds in 2012.”
BREAKING NEWS: Car plowed through protesters at #OccupyDC, at least two injured. Cops using batons on protesters. →
From Greg Mitchell of The Nation: “Hundreds of protesters blocking intersections and ‘surrounding’ the convention center hosting a right-wing event with presidential candidates Herman Cain and Mitt Romney; major conservative party donors (and backers of the Tea Party) Charles Koch and David Koch said to be in the building. Brief video here.
Cops use batons on protesters and make multiple arrests. Car plowed through the crowd of protesters, ABC News and Washington post confirm at least two injured. Photo of injured protester on stretrcher. Livestream here.
UPDATE: Wash Post also reports two injured and also fights breaking out between protesters and others.
(Although I suspect that the “fights between protesters” may be a result of undercover cops sent to disrupt and discredit the protests, as happened with the disruptive faux protester whose conduct led to multiple arrests at Citibank).
I don’t remember shit like this happening to the tea party…. even our protesters are treated unequal…
an NY Times interview with presidential hopeful Rick Perry. just proving how important it will b to vote this time around
US Domestic Policy, 1984 through 2011.
Yes, angry white man. Keep buying into the witch hunts. Keep voting against your own family’s dire needs and maybe (just maybe) they’ll hire your grandchildren. Who can ever really be sure about these things?
(Don’t call them…they’ll call you.)
Yeah, they are a bunch of tools.
Imbecile Texas Republican Louie Gohmert is rolling around on the floor of his congressional office in a fit of snickering and spittle, because he figured out that no lawmaker had officially proposed Barack Obama’s American Jobs Act to Congress. This means that technically speaking, the name “American Jobs Act” did not yet exist in the files, because the Democrats are losers. Gohmert immediately pooped himself with puerile excitement and ran off to scribble “American Jobs Act: no more corporate taxes forever” on two sheets of paper and then handed it over to the House. BAM, filed. He wins, that’s it! The name is his! Hahahahaha, take that, uppity Negro President! Go tell everyone to pass the American Jobs Act now!
Jesus fuck. What an idiot.
Dear Louie Gohmert (R-Texas. What a shock.) How about you actually, you know, govern, you jackass?
For fuck’s sake! This is what the Republican-led Congress is doing instead of helping the country. Childishly dicking with the president. Your tax dollars at work!
“I submit to the floor a non-binding proposal, I call this bill the ‘Obama is a jerk and everyone hates his stupid face’ act, all in favor?”
As INFURIATING as this is, can I just say “WHAT THE HELL DEMOCRATS!” get your shit together! honestly shit like this is amateur! can we get our stuff together? seriously!
