I've been paying attention to non-presidential campaign issues today, and I've nearly ignored an inbox that was chock-a-block with amazing things. Earlier today, before he would make much bigger news (a third woman will accuse him of sexual misdeeds), Herman Cain's campaign put out this advisory.
The problem: Ohio is not on central time. I asked Cain spokesman what was up. "Michigan events are being held the day prior," he said, "and media advisory template wasn't changed before being sent out." Michigan is in the eastern time zone, too, except for the four westernmost counties, but we'll leave that, because Team Romney spent the day shooting out advisories for 12 state phone call/pressers with reporters. What does a push like that do to an inbox? A sample:
