It appears to me that, as Sarah Palin was before him, Herman Cain has been the victim of a left-media coalition designed to silence him as a political person. I hereby coin a verb for this sort of tactic--he has been "Palined"
Allow me to make a prediction, which is actually a synthesis of several other folks I've read or heard--Newt Gingrich will also fall prey to this tactic, as will every other candidate on the Republican side save one, Romney. We will get Romney (also known as Obama Lite) as the Republican Presidential nominee. Then he will be attacked more subtly, based on "questions" about his "controversial" Mormon religion. Obama will be win by another slim margin that will be hailed as a "landslide"
Folks, we're about to be "McCained". Prepare for the consequences.
