So how did he deal with the draft board ? It would seem a high school ROTC participant would have chosen to enlist.

Well thank goodness he did not enter the draft or attend West Point, since he went on to become one of the greatest surgeons in recent history. Regarding the scholarship, it's easy to see how a 17 year old kid could view that conversation with General Westmoreland as a scholarship offer. How many kids that age fully comprehend the application and admissions process for State U, much less for West Point?

Finally, I believe it was Politico who started the witch hunt against Herman Cain 4 years ago. Were any of those claims or charges ever substantiated, or did they go away as soon as Cain dropped out of the race? Thought so. It seems to me Politico may have some strange aversion to black conservatives. Nothing to see here.

Some of the most unstable and crazy people I know are very successful doctors. But of course he is still lying presently about his involvement with corporate sponsorship. At least he shed some light on the fact that the pyramids were built to store grain, now we know. The issue I have with him are some of his crazy statements and beliefs.
