Dept of you can't make this up UPDATE Morning Joe Zogby Who?

This has been a good twelve hours for Her­man Cain

First he wins the Twin City Tea Party Straw poll, BOTH for pres­i­dent and VP and appear­ing on over 60% of the ballots.

Then he tops in the New Zogby poll

Then the next day Mor­gan Free­man who Cain hit the day before over his “Tea Party are racist” com­ments turns out to be less easy reader and more the black ver­sion of Woody Allen:

Any­one else won­der­ing if Mor­gan paid off his now ex-​wife, so he could qui­etly marry his step-​granddaughter?

Accord­ing to the Enquirer, Free­man cheated on his now ex-​wife with a num­ber of women — E’Dina being one of them — and Free­man and E’Dina’s affair began when when she was just a teenager (and we thought this whole inces­tual rela­tion­ship couldn’t get any worse)! But appar­ently now that he’s no longer legally bound to another woman, the Oscar-​winner has vowed to make a “decent” woman out of his step-​granddaughter and father her children!

So much for the moral author­ity bit.

And via Amer­i­can Glob Poli­tio by high­light­ing Hunts­man over him in their arti­cle gives more agata to Morn­ing Joe and the left today.

Now it remains to be seen how well Cain does as a front run­ner vs a man in the pack.

Update: Morn­ing Joe spends 5 min on Dore­tos and the Red Sox and then goes with the older CNN poll not men­tion­ing Zobgy this morn­ing and goes long on Chris Christie for 8 min.

Mean­while Robert Stacy McCain says this at the spec­ta­tor:

What Her­man Cain did in Orlando this week­end was both com­pletely unex­pected and entirely pre­dictable. As late as Fri­day after­noon, none of the pun­dits expected the Atlanta busi­ness­man to win the Florida GOP’s “Pres­i­dency 5″ straw poll. But if what it took to win was a dynamic speaker who could bring a room­ful of grass­roots Repub­li­cans to their feet, Cain’s vic­tory was in some sense inevitable.

and notes this on the blog:

Sarah points out that Zogby includes sur­vey infor­ma­tion from Mon­day. An ear­lier poll by CNN, show­ing Perry still ahead, was taken Fri­day through Sun­day. But (a) it was Perry’s defeat in the straw poll that will do the most dam­age, and (b) week­end sur­vey data is untrust­wor­thy. Only when I see an all-​weekday polls fully reflect­ing the impact of the Orlando vote will I be con­fi­dent about the trend.

The ear­lier poll is what Morn­ing Joe went with, along with Jon Hunts­man who they are hav­ing on the show in one more des­per­ate attempt to give him a boost. Mean­while the Lonely Con­ser­v­a­tive notes the fol­low­ing:

The only rea­son Cain wasn’t higher in the polls before is that the media didn’t give him the time of day. Now that peo­ple are get­ting to know him, they’re start­ing to like him. What’s not to like? He’s a suc­cess­ful man who clearly loves life, has good ideas and shares the val­ues most of us hold dear. Oh, and did I men­tion that he’s not a pro­fes­sional politician?

It looks like MSNBC is going long on the “not giv­ing the time of day” busi­ness. I’ve got a call into Ellen Carmichael I’ll try to get a com­ment before the com­puter is shut off for two days.

Update: Missed the 7 a.m. hour of Morn­ing Joe due to mass but why do I have the feel­ing this (via insty) is related?

Ivan Lewis, the shadow cul­ture sec­re­tary, will pro­pose a licens­ing scheme for jour­nal­ists through a pro­fes­sional body that will have the power to for­bid peo­ple who breach its code of con­duct from doing jour­nal­ism in the future.

Given that “jour­nal­ism” presently encom­passes “pub­lish­ing accounts of things you’ve seen using the Inter­net” and “tak­ing pic­tures of stuff and tweet­ing them” and “blog­ging” and “com­ment­ing on news sto­ries,” this pro­posal is even more insane than the tra­di­tion “jour­nal­ist licenses” prac­ticed in total­i­tar­ian nations.

This is (par­don my lan­guage) an MSM wet dream

This has been a good twelve hours for Herman Cain

First he wins the Twin City Tea Party Straw poll, BOTH for president and VP and appearing on over 60% of the ballots.

Then he tops in the New Zogby poll

Then the next day Morgan Freeman who Cain hit the day before over his “Tea Party are racist” comments turns out to be less easy reader and more the black version of Woody Allen:

Anyone else wondering if Morgan paid off his now ex-wife, so he could quietly marry his step-granddaughter?

According to the Enquirer, Freeman cheated on his now ex-wife with a number of women—E’Dina being one of them—and Freeman and E’Dina’s affair began when when she was just a teenager (and we thought this whole incestual relationship couldn’t get any worse)! But apparently now that he’s no longer legally bound to another woman, the Oscar-winner has vowed to make a “decent” woman out of his step-granddaughter and father her children!

So much for the moral authority bit.

And via American Glob Politio by highlighting Huntsman over him in their article gives more agata to Morning Joe and the left today.

Now it remains to be seen how well Cain does as a front runner vs a man in the pack.

Update: Morning Joe spends 5 min on Doretos and the Red Sox and then goes with the older CNN poll not mentioning Zobgy this morning and goes long on Chris Christie for 8 min.

Meanwhile Robert Stacy McCain says this at the spectator:

What Herman Cain did in Orlando this weekend was both completely unexpected and entirely predictable. As late as Friday afternoon, none of the pundits expected the Atlanta businessman to win the Florida GOP’s “Presidency 5” straw poll. But if what it took to win was a dynamic speaker who could bring a roomful of grassroots Republicans to their feet, Cain’s victory was in some sense inevitable.

and notes this on the blog:

Sarah points out that Zogby includes survey information from Monday. An earlier poll by CNN, showing Perry still ahead, was taken Friday through Sunday. But (a) it was Perry’s defeat in the straw poll that will do the most damage, and (b) weekend survey data is untrustworthy. Only when I see an all-weekday polls fully reflecting the impact of the Orlando vote will I be confident about the trend.

The earlier poll is what Morning Joe went with, along with Jon Huntsman who they are having on the show in one more desperate attempt to give him a boost. Meanwhile the Lonely Conservative notes the following:

The only reason Cain wasn’t higher in the polls before is that the media didn’t give him the time of day. Now that people are getting to know him, they’re starting to like him. What’s not to like? He’s a successful man who clearly loves life, has good ideas and shares the values most of us hold dear. Oh, and did I mention that he’s not a professional politician?

It looks like MSNBC is going long on the “not giving the time of day” business. I’ve got a call into Ellen Carmichael I’ll try to get a comment before the computer is shut off for two days.

Update: Missed the 7 a.m. hour of Morning Joe due to mass but why do I have the feeling this (via insty) is related?

Ivan Lewis, the shadow culture secretary, will propose a licensing scheme for journalists through a professional body that will have the power to forbid people who breach its code of conduct from doing journalism in the future.

Given that “journalism” presently encompasses “publishing accounts of things you’ve seen using the Internet” and “taking pictures of stuff and tweeting them” and “blogging” and “commenting on news stories,” this proposal is even more insane than the tradition “journalist licenses” practiced in totalitarian nations.

This is (pardon my language) an MSM wet dream
