I found this article hilarious...as I am a fan of the Honey Badger

As Ana Marie Cox joked on Twitter, “I do not think ‘confirmed’ means what Mark Block thinks it means.”

I didn’t realize you could do that. Then again, most things about the Herman Cain campaign are things I didn’t realize you could do. From that smoking campaign ad to his singing response to allegations of sexual harassment, he hasn’t so much ignored the rulebook as torn the rulebook in half and jumped up and down on it until it was crushed into an unrecognizable pulp. And so far he’s still the front-runner.

Maybe I should learn from him. I am going to start confirming all kinds of things now.

“I don’t think that what you said about mutants being responsible for the War of 1812 is accurate,” my editor will say.

“Nope. Just confirmed it,” I’ll say. I assume from context that “confirmed” now means “I Googled it, but ignored the results.”

“No,” my editor will say. “That’s not how things work in the actual world.”

Once I thought so too. But now I’m not so sure. It seems to be working for Cain. Before, we had the sense that the Cain campaign was making things up as it went along. But now we have actual proof.

Herman Cain is the honey badger of candidates. He doesn’t care. He’s impervious to fear, pain, logic, anything.

One could say the same thing about Cain supporters (except they're not impervious to fear).

I just noticed the poll on the sidebar: when will the media stop it with this 3rd party stuff?
"If Texas Congressman Ron Paul ran as a third-party candidate in 2012, what percent of the vote would he get? "

I voted 25%+ just for the hell of it
