Who could have possibly predicted that a guy who battled against tougher drunk driving laws would turn out to be an asshole? Think Progress linked to the New York Times this morning:

And then there was that e-mail to the staff about traveling in a car with Mr. Cain: “Do not speak to him unless you are spoken to,” the memo said.

“I found it odd,” said a former staff member who liked to prep Mr. Cain for appearances while driving. The aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, quit not long afterward, citing the e-mail as one of the deciding factors.

You should read the rest of the piece and then reflect on the fact that some polls continue to show this guy in the lead.
