After GOP Presidential candidate Herman Cain criticized fellow candidate Rick Perry over his property which had a sign saying “n-word head ranch,” conservatives have been criticizing Cain for “pulling the race card.”

After the controversy ensued, Cain told ABC News, “I think that it shows a lack of sensitivity for a long time of not taking that word off of that rock and renaming the place.”

Mother Jones reports:

You might have anticipated that Perry would face a firestorm for being associated with the property, but it’s Cain whose remarks are drawing the most criticism from the right. At RedState, Erick Erickson concluded, “It also seems to be a slander Herman Cain is picking up and running with as a way to get into second place.” Glenn Reynolds remarked that until now, Cain’s “big appeal is that he’s not just another black race-card-playing politician.” Over at the Daily Caller, Matt Lewis called Cain’s remarks “a cheap shot, and, perhaps a signal that Cain is willing to play the race card against a fellow Republican when it benefits him.”
