Weekend Wrap-Up of Republican Primary Contenders!

Dear Commons Community,

This weekend saw a number of major developments in the Republican Presidential Primary race.

First, Herman Cain suspended his nomination yesterday stating that allegations about sexual harassment and affairs were taking a toll on him and his family.

Second, Michelle Bachman revealed that she met her husband Marcus at college and in a vision, God told her to marry him.

Third, Newt Gingrich after attacking poor kids who do not work, is the subject of a Maureen Dowd column wherein she states:

“His [Gingrich’s] mind is a jumble, an amateurish mess lacking impulse control. He plays air guitar with ideas, producing air ideas. He ejaculates concepts, notions and theories that are as inconsistent as his behavior.

He didn’t get whiplash being a serial adulterer while impeaching another serial adulterer, a lobbyist for Freddie Mac while attacking Freddie Mac, a self-professed fiscal conservative with a whopping Tiffany’s credit line, and an anti-Communist Army brat who supported the Vietnam War but dodged it.”

Only in America!
