    So, if I donate to Herman Cain's campaign (regardless of how viable it may be), my money doesn't go to electing him, it goes to buying his book. I wonder where that money goes... into his pockets?

    So, just like Gingrich and Palin, running for president, or pretending to run for president, is a money making venture.

    For someone who never ran for office before, he sure did learn fast.

    If he were a Democrat, Fox News would run a headline that just happened to have the word THIEF in giant capital letters near a picture of Mr. Cain.

    Pretty much, but it'll be a cold day in hell before that happens.

    So what should he do, have a different company publish the book so that money goes to someone else :confused: How is that better?

    E.g.,

    It's shady, I'm glad it's getting attention. But, who knows, maybe this too is the default behavior in Sim City 4, and the user must manually change the settings, so I'll give H.C. time to fix it. :)
