The best article on the Herman Cain contraversy you will find

Trust me, I visit numerous news sites and blogs and pour over entries from all types of pundits on a regular basis. Since allegations from the 1990's started coming up this past week concerning Herman Cain's conduct while serving CEO of the National Restaurants Association (ironically enough, about 12 hours before he was to address the National Press Club for the first time), this has got to be BY FAR the most informative article on the entire debacle. It's extensive, well written, informative, contains some points that other media outlets didn't cover and is even-handed in it's coverage. By all means, feel free to weigh in with your thoughts on this contraversy in the comment box below. Here's a brief snippet of the linked article from The Hayride...

"This thing could be a great opportunity for a transformational moment, and Cain’s campaign could well have led the way to a discussion that would greatly benefit the country. It’s somewhat analogous to the opportunity Obama had early in 2008 when the nation found out he’d spent 20 years in a church led by an anti-American charlatan who regularly trashed white people and bastardized the country’s history as a key element of his ministry. Naturally, Obama mucked that moment by throwing his “typical white person” grandmother under the bus, though he got away with that thanks to the media’s happy acquiescence in the faux racial-healing propaganda offensive. But a presidential candidate who isn’t a typical white person and whose qualifications as a candidate include a demonstrated ability to generate achievement in large organizations and who then points to old allegations of an arguably minor import as a reason why we’re killing ourselves with intolerance toward each other in our daily dealings would be perfectly placed to capitalize on it. And in doing so, said candidate would cement himself as a uniter on the national scene."

ADDENDUM: Additionally, check out this video response from Cain supporters. I think it can be an effective message but you be the judge.

EDIT: Politico runs 90 92 stories on Cain in 5 days, and counting...

"if you don't have a job and you're not rich, blame yourself! ... It is not a person's fault if they succeeded, it is a person's fault if they failed." —Herman Cain, October 5,2011

"I shall forever life mine eyes to Calvary,
to view the cross where Jesus died for me,
how marvelous the grace that caught my falling soul;
He looked beyond my fault and saw my need."
—Herman Cain, October 31,2011

Poor people should be held accountable for their faults; Herman Cain should be forgiven for his.

At least, according to Herman Cain.
