    ‘This was once a serious country’ – amended

    ‘This was once a serious country’ – amended

    From an op-ed in The Washington Times by Wesley Pruden, Herman Cain and innuendos:

    This was once a serious country with serious newspapers, back in the day when they were edited by serious editors and a man had the right to confront an accuser before she was allowed to destroy his reputation, career and even his life.

    Herman Cain doesn’t look like Jack the Ripper, but Scotland Yard never pursued Mr. Ripper with the passion of the newspapers and television networks so hot after Mr. Cain. He may be guilty of whatever it is that he is accused of – so far little more than a wink, a predatory smile or even a suggestive smirk. Or he may not be guilty. But in the wonderland of Washington journalism, we demand the verdict first and only then the evidence (if any).

    Let me amend this argument, ‘There was once a serious conservative movement’:

    This There was once a serious country conservative movement with serious newspapers, back in the day when they were edited by serious editors and a man had the right to confront an accuser before she was allowed to destroy his reputation, career and even his life.

    Herman Cain doesn’t look like Jack the Ripper, but Scotland Yard never pursued Mr. Ripper with the passion of the newspapers and television networks conservative Twitterers and bloggers so hot after Mr. Cain because they support another candidate. He may be guilty of whatever it is that he is accused of – so far little more than a wink, a predatory smile or even a suggestive smirk. Or he may not be guilty. But in the wonderland of Washington journalism the conservative blogosphere, we now demand the verdict first and only then the evidence (if any).

    Yep, I agree with Mr Jacobson.. I see the problem as 2 fold..

    On one side, you have the Anti-American, Anti-US Constitution, liberal Socialist-Marxist radicals and extremists, in not only the Democratic Party, but in every aspect of politics and the media, aggressively trying to destroy and bring down America as a Free Market Capitalist Constitutional Republic.. and on the other hand, you have a bunch of different factions in the Republican Party and Conservative movements, divided and all trying to be the major power player and broker.. under cutting each other, becoming a Party in disarray, with bickering and back stabbing, as the only game in town..

    It’s easier for the haters and extremists in the Democratic Party to unify, as they all have the same goal, destruction of America, Religion, the US Constitution, and Conservatives.. but the same cannot be said for the Constitutional Tea Party Conservatives, moderate Independents and Libertarians, and the Republican Party establishment RINO elites- in the Republican Party, which is why I believe that their will a Major Political Party split, and another political party will emerge, depending on what happens after 6 Nov. 2012..
