Today was filled with a lot of important news.
  • Herman Cain is standing with conviction against the sexual harassment claims against him and treating them with the absurdity they appear to possess as more and more information is revealed.
"I have never acted inappropriately with anyone, period. The charges and the accusations I absolutely reject: They simply didn't happen. They simply did not happen."

"As far as these accusations causing me to back off and maybe withdraw from this primary race, ain't gonna happen, because I am doing this for the American people and for the children and the grandchildren."

  • For the first time in American history all radio and television broadcasts will be interrupted at 2 p.m. EST tomorrow as an Emergency Alert System test conducted by FEMA and FCC. For every legitimate reason these two government entities have for conducting this test there is an equally questionable reason why they are attempting to determine whether they have the power to completely interrupt or assume entire control of all radio and television broadcasts.
  • Yesterday, during the G20 Summit, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Barack Obama spoke candidly to one another about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, not realizing their microphones were still on.
Sarkozy said, “I cannot stand him. He is a liar.”

Obama replied, “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him everyday!”

There is some quality foreign policy.
  • And finally, this is a really big deal, there was an election today in Ohio, which will set a precedent for the future of health care and the collective bargaining rights of unions. The results of this election will also give a useful reference point of where exactly this country stands regarding liberal and conservative ideas. Obamacare and collective bargaining rights for unions are obviously more liberal interests, while the freedom to choose your own health care provider and maintaining balanced state budgets are more conservative values. There are still many precincts that have not reported but at 8:16 pm here in Louisiana, the votes that have been turned in represent a landslide to keep union’s collective bargaining rights and to preserve the freedom of Ohioans to choose their health care providers and plans. A win for the unions and a loss for Obamacare.
768.7 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day71.
