WEST PALM BEACH — Herman Cain will be a surprise guest at tonight’s Lincoln Day Dinner at the Kravis Center to endorse Newt Gingrich, the Palm Beach Post has confirmed.

The Shark Tank, a conservative news site, was the first to report the endorsement.

Earlier today, Palm Beach County GOP chairman Sid Dinerstein promised a big surprise at tonight’s dinner.

Nothing from drudge yet.

Yah, he's got a puny one liner at the top of the center column. Gotta admit, it's the only hit I gave him this week. Your fault :o)

Drudge is primarily a referer site for the New York Times. I stopped visiting his site years ago.

Gingrich just gave the finest speech I've ever seen by a politician with the exception of Reagan...or maybe not. Just wow.

Yes it was; truly inspirational, not a word about Romney but about the future in America, a vision of how it can be and how it would be if he and conservatives are elected. It gave me chills and my eyes teared up. And without notes or a teleprompter, just amazing.

There was never a doubt in my mind that it was Romneys group that put out the dirt on Cain. As I remember one of Romneys staff went over to Rick Perrys campaign.

It would be more appropriate to say, he "infiltrated" the Perry campaign to do damage to Perry.

But, Romney is innocent and as pure as the wind driven snow./s

It was an exceptional speech and has me more and more convinced that the Speaker really has the best interests of America at heart.

I really needed to hear what he said tonight. REALLY needed it. I’ve been depressed over this whole election cycle! All my earlier favorites dropped out. *sigh*

Bump! WOW Indeed. And Allen West was right there with him. As you said, I have not seen a speech like that since Reagan. This out to scare the crap out of the Obastard (probably won't he is too arrogant). No difference, he is going down.

Well, I haven’t been visiting at all since Thursday, so I decided to take 1 little peek.

What a sickening place.

The announcement on DR666 shows a picture of Cain with Colbert, just to make sure nobody takes any of them seriously.

Just makes me sick to my stomach some people still don’t know what’s going on over there - well, just about all over.

I greatly admire Allen West. Am old but would shoulder a weapon following him. Would loose no sleep over it.

Would vote for him for Pres or Vice-Pres. Or anything else he ran for.

As an officer he took care of his men.

Can you imagine how he despises Zero? He said he was not going to let Obama (aka Obozo) destroy this nation. I believe him.

Dems hate him indeed. (and greatly fear)

From Cain's own remarks the "sausage grinder" experience had a great influence on his decision.

I'm pleased to have been wrong about who he finally endorsed.

the choice has become pretty clear now.

If you ever supported Palin, Perry, or Cain... you should now be supporting Gingrich.

All the anybody but Romney’s have come together and decided who’s the best conservative in the race, all you have to do is believe those whom you formally supported instead of the lies Romney has on your TV and in your mailbox.

With Cain, Perry, Sowell, Palins, Reagans, Laffer, Thompson, and others (Rush & Levin, almost there) now, the next big gets for Newt will be Santorum & Huck.

While I don’t share the enthusiasm for Newt, I’m curious what the impact will be. I’ll be surprised if there’s a big bounce after people have had such a long time to make up their own minds.

Cain was my first choice but this won’t get me to Newt. Others who were more open to Newt are likely already in his camp. Curious how many Cain supporters remain(ed) undecided to this point.

Keep track of those who vote for Romney so we know who to vote out

Somebody needs to do a list we can add onto so when it comes time we know exactly who needs to get the boot for every state.

It makes a difference though most couldn’t tell to what degree. Heck remember in school when it came time to get picked or not....well it’s rather like that for those whose endorsements come into play only the endorser has the upper hand.....it’s simply the “pick” game in reverse.

Just like I’m guessing Santorum endorses Newt around Feb 7ish.

I’m back...I’m sure there’s a transcript...check c-span...I suspect they’d have one.

Sorry about your speakers...time for new ones maybe?

Mesta, I have a new addition to my home...I found a big Orange and White Tabby Cat shivering in the cold on my deck. After the second night I couldn’t stand it anymore. Picked her up , brought her in, wiped her down with a warm towel...and that ended her seige and trauma of dealing with the elements and street fights. Done deal!

She now enjoys great food...a warm fluffy cat bed all her own...kitty toys..and lots of petting, which she never has enough of, and she owns my lap!..Soon I’ll take her to vets for a checkup etc. now that her behavior shows me she has taken over the place ..and me! She fills my whole lap!

Just wanted to share that....

I hope Herman Cain remains on the public scene. He had his flaws, but considering how low Obama set the bar Cain looks like a giant in comparison.

Well if there’s a big bump in the Sunday polls (or the actuals), we can attribute much of that to Cain.

Or Newt's out of the Park Speech, it was pretty amazing to be sure. I'm not convinced if Cain's ndid much since most anticipated this would be long ago, it was just a matter of when. But I'm not a good one to ask concerning Cain because I just don't like the man for his delivery and inability to know when to stop talking or how much to say.
