      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

"Once you're on the Cain Train...!"

 

Somehow, I doubt his campaign investment/speaking fee venture will produce a positive return at this point.

 

Washington Outsider!

He'll be a fixture on Fox News, that GOP nursing home for retired clowns, in no time. Or doing stints on the sexual addiction treatment circuit.

Herman Cain was never supposed to "take off". Leave it to the idiocracy of the GOP base to turn him into a legitimate contender. "9-9-9!!"

Cain had the advantage of sounding sincere, which cannot be said for most of the other clowns.

They've been saying irony is dead for a while now, but satire too?

 

It's my sincere hope that we'll be able to look back at this period in history and have a good laugh.

He sure sounded full of shit from day one to me.

 

A trait which instantly qualifies him for a talking head job at FOX. I'm gonna have to retract my previous statement in light of recent history.

 

BLACK CONSERVATIVE = BLACK GOLD.

Sure but it didn't detract from the usual quack theories they typically buy into.

Romney is a really, really bad liar and Perry gives the impression he would have been a good car salesman. What were GOPers supposed to do?

The GOPers should rally behind Huntsman, but, like, he's betrayed the party by actually being serious about the public interest. Plus, he's not dysfunctional enough - he'll never relate to the base thataway.

Drunk, horny, fat, old, married, and republican.

 

SEXY.

 

 

Or however many nights that was. Two and counting...

 

...but I'm sure they were isolated incidents.

 

Yeah. They always are.

Yeah, I'm not a big fan, but more 'cause it's been shown that these shows constitute the primary news source for a disturbingly large number of liberals. That ain't good.

Right. You kind of wonder why they aren't behind Paul. Sure, he is anti-war (although he gave a blank check to GW in 2001) but what's another flip-flop, which by definition is not permanent. To boot, the GOP base has finally reached Paul's level of market fundamentalism and hatred of social policies. I suspect it isn't impossible that Paul would gain from Cain's demise.

Oh, I don't know. Restricted calorie diet + levity = longevity.

 

May be, but you shouldn't be too thin when you grow old. You might need reserves.

The convention's 10 months away. A lot could happen. Huntsmen could come up from the rear (in a non-Cain-like fashion, I mean). Given the state of the GOP right now, I give that about a .00001% chance, but still...

 

Where's Karl when you need him?
