‘We Make Mistakes. But They Can’t Catch Us.’

11 November 2011 @ 00:04

Stacy McCain scored an interview with Herman Cain Campaign Chief Of Staff Mark Block earlier this evening that came on the heels of this posting by Stacy.

A highlight from the interview:

RSM: And so these amateurs jumping in on ‘Oh, what’s wrong with the Cain campaign’ kind of pissed me off. And so I said, ‘OK, I’ll uncork one and when it’s all said and done, guess what? They just raised $9 million, they’re on top of the polls, nobody ever thought they’d ever be there — you want to recalibrate your criticism?’

BLOCK: You know, Stacy, and I’m not blowing smoke up your ass – no pun intended — but you’re one of the few that get that this is a non-traditional campaign.

Does Block make mistakes? Of course! You know, one of the reasons is we don’t have an army of researchers and analysts telling us what we can and cannot say and how to say it, OK? I don’t have a whole slew of lawyers that I go to and say, ‘You know what, because I say this thing about this kid that works for Politico and his mother, double-check the facts.’ I get handed a piece of paper and it says that he works at Politico, they broke the story, same last name of this woman, connect the dots — I was wrong! I admitted I was wrong, all right?

Now, with all of those faults, though, Stacy, we run a million miles an hour. And you know what? We make mistakes. But they can’t catch us.

Please do take the time to click here and read the rest.

Maybe I’ve been wrong; maybe these guys know what they’re doing.

    Maybe they need a maintaince train to come behind the Cain Train.

    I think they are learning, but the curve is getting much steeper.

    I do believe Newt’s catching up to Cain.
