Perry courts Cain supporters
Mon December 5, 2011 11:40 am

Politico’s Ben Smith noted yesterday that Rick Perry’s Facebook page appeals to Cain voters to switch their allegiance to Perry in the wake of Cain’s suspension of his presidential campaign. There is a photo of Cain and Perry, with the phrase “Both Washington Outsiders” between them.

Far be it from me to say that this ploy won’t work, but … when the sexual harassment allegations against Cain first surfaced, who was it that the Cain team blamed for the revelations? Oh, yes. It was the Perry campaign. And wasn’t it Cain who took umbrage at the name painted on the rock at Perry’s hunting camp, calling it “insensitive.” No love lost there.
