…in the blogosphere. For the record, I still like Herman Cain – but his staff is currently getting really, really, REALLY into a death spiral with this story. Not to be mean about this: suggesting that Rahm Emanuel would use the Rick Perry campaign as a stalking horse to try to derail Cain’s campaign? Or that Perry would allow that to happen? That is what we in this business call crazytalk.
Seriously. My mind keeps trying to encompass a world where the two would collaborate on anything covert or sneaky without the scheme immediately being brought out screaming into the light by tight-lipped partisan staffers on either side, and failing: it keeps skittering on the surface of that thought like a beetle on a marble egg, always looking for an entrance that just isn’t there.
