Raising Cain

I root for Herman Cain in my latest AmSpec column, though truth be told I have a feeling that Isakson will squeak by with an outright win. Unless more than one polling outfit is operating with fatally skewed sampling methods, undecideds will have to break overwhelmingly against Isakson to force a run-off.

I don't have anything against Isakson particularly, least of all his heterodoxy on abortion. (I'm an anti-Roe supporter of early-term--but only early-term-- abortion on demand, so I have little use for purity tests on that issue.) But Cain would be a steadfast friend of taxpayers, and is the kind of figure who could emerge as a national star.

Herman Cain is exactly the kind of figure the Repbulican Party should be endorsing. Here's hoping the voters of Georgia realzie that. If not maybe Bush would be wise enough to add him to his next cabinet (Treasury or Commerce maybe, if Evans quits).

I forgot to ask, who is Miller supporting?

Dunno if Miller made an endorsement (probably not), but it's moot now: Isakson won outright.
