Perhaps the best thing about the proliferation of quality conservative and libertarian blogs is that if you don’t get around to checking the blogs until late morning PST (early afternoon EST) you will invariably find a blogger (or blogress) who expresses your views with reasonable accuracy so to make your point, you just need cut and paste his (or her) post and encourage your readers to read the whole thing.
Let’s sum up the “facts” as they are known right now. Mostly unnamed people accused Herman Cain of unspecified conduct which some people who will not specify the people or the conduct have deemed “inappropriate.” . . . .
That’s what’s known now. Maybe actual facts will come out proving that Cain did something wrong, but those facts are not out now.
Insisting on actual facts before a major conservative politician is taken down is not “selling out our minds.”
Cain has seriously messed up the situation and his campaign with an inconsistent response and a blame game, but does this justify the gloating and pure happiness being exhibited at the media feeding frenzy?
Read the whole thing. And read that last paragraph again. Jacobson really nails it. Yeah, I agree, the candidate did himself no favors with his (seemingly inconsistent) responses to the allegations. But, we still don’t know all the facts.

*as happened when I read Michael Barone’s post–but that was in the wee hours of the morning.
