Doug was on vacation during the second week of September, so that’s why you got no Doug last week. But he was back this week, so here ya go.
By the way, there seems to be a few Herman Cain fans around here, so I’ll start you off with a couple on that topic.
From the audio files:
1) “…Cain takes aim at the Environmental Protection Agency, and he explains the reality. The left will say you’re crazy for saying something like this, [but] this is one of the signs of sanity when you describe the EPA the way Herman Cain has described it…”
2) “…[Herman Cain] was the only one who really outlined what he would do with the tax code. And I don’t know why the tax code conversation isn’t central to the whole debate…”
3) “…So if someone is really a narcissist… what does that mean? It means someone must control everything, including all interactions with others. The reason they have to do this is to feed their own sense of domination. Now Obama uses… 3 tactics [of control] that we see a lot: misinformation, emotional manipulation, and accusations…”
4) “…What she’s saying is what the left always says, which is that there is not enough redistributed wealth…”

And for those who would rather read than listen, gems-a-plenty:
1) “Herman Cain is my guy. I’ve finally said it in plain English. He’s my favorite. But the mainstream media will turn him into the second coming of Clarence Thomas.”
2) “Mitt Romney refused to call Obama a socialist. Something that is factually and demonstrably true. Does he, himself, fear being called a socialist because of certain policies that he likes?”
3) “The sooner Barack Obama is out on the lecture circuit, and the sooner he’s out there ghost-writing with a ghost-writer his new memoir, the better for all of us.”
4) “At some point, you start to say, ‘well, maybe Obama is completely incapable of self-reflection; incapable of considering the idea that he might be wrong about anything – whether it’s what to have for lunch or nuclear war.’”
5) “Obama spends time kow-towing to the Islamic extremists in the world, under the delusional idea that his words would somehow make them swoon into submission.”
6) “In his speech, Ahmadinejad was mad about the US history of slavery, America causing 2 world wars, using the nuclear bomb, imposing military dictatorships in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Sounds exactly like Obama’s point of view.”
7) “Michelle is out there wearing $42,000 diamond cuffs. The Obamas should take my advice and think about firing their ‘personal shopper.’ There is a severe lack of taste going on here, along with a severe lack of in-touchness with ordinary people.”
8) “There is one consistent pattern we have seen with Obama’s policies in the Middle East: he always, 100% of the time, does the wrong thing, at the wrong time, for the wrong reasons.”
9) “These liberals won’t recede of their own accord. They only recede because we’re pushing them back.”
10) “None of Obama’s proposals are serious. He doesn’t mean any of it. All he means to do by any of these proposals is to use them as a device aimed at making Republicans look bad.”
See, it’s that last one that really gets me. The liberal media spends all this time talking about what Obama says in his speeches, and they quote the reasonable, inoffensive parts about “working together” and “putting party before country” and maybe some table-scrap tax cut, but he doesn’t mean those words any more than my cat means “imjsetfrkoewr” when she walks across my keyboard.
