What is the point of Herman Cain?

What is the point of this guy???

Why don’t the Republicans nominate Bishop Don instead?

He’s got the charisma, the likability thing, the business acumen, and possibly a better grasp of   foreign relations.

I’m sick of that stupid arrogant pizza salesman.   What a fucker. His function as comic relief has expired.

Bishop Don could even use personal motto as his campaign slogan!

“Green is for the money, gold is for the honeys.”

    ‘Sis’, he has one great advantage as a possible contender for the presidency, he is not a *professional* politician. That doesn’t necessarily make him right for the job but it helps.

  2. Katie Says:

    I read an article that quite aptly compared Cain to the Duchy of Grand Fenwick in the film The Mouse That Roared.

    His entire candidacy was a lark and he never planned to win but then when faced with possible success, well, we get to watch the implosion.

    Peter Sellers did it better though. And was much more likable.

    he’s such an asshole. i can’t stand him.

  4. Romeo Says:

    I am very puzzled by the “born again” Christians I know who take the text of the Bible literally yet support the namesake of a fratricide. The Devil hides in plain sight and laughs in their faces.

    A brief, comics-ical respite for us to laugh at as we lose our jobs and try to find new breadlines. Why am I not laughing when American politics is reduced to this? The world is watching the demise of a Great Empire. Where is everyone moving? I need ideas.

  6. O D Y S S E Y Says:

    I’m very sensitive to arrogance. (Ewww, arrogant arse on aisle five!) I don’t find Herman Cain arrogant.

  7. Sister Wolf Says:

    Odyssey – You don’t find it arrogant of Herman Cain to think he should be head of the free world when he doesn’t know anything about anything?!?

  8. O D Y S S E Y Says:

    Re: “doesn’t know anything about anything”: I believe he knows something about something.
    I see a great deal of confidence, yes. I honestly don’t see arrogance, and because I detest that trait, I can usually spot it miles away.
    It appears people are tired of career politicians and slick salesmanship. That could explain one reason for his popularity.

  9. Sister Wolf Says:

    Odyssey – Okay, he knows about the restaurant business and about making money as a motivational speaker. If his key attribute is that he’s not a career politician, then there is a large pool to choose from. In fact, a nice black lady at Macy’s sold my sister some earrings today, and we wondered whether she could run for president. She was likable, down to earth, and she probably knew that China has nuclear weapons.

  10. David Duff Says:

    Well, ‘Sis’, it might only be a multi-zillion dollar restaurant business which he rescued from the doldrums but what did the college-educated dimwit currently in the White House ever do – that’s “do” in the sense of achieve?

    And his, er, ‘knowledge’ of the world led him to believe that Iran could be won over to love of America. It also led him to believe that all the prisoners in Gitmo could be let go. It also led him to believe that government money creates jobs. It also led him to believe that Green energy was a money-maker and not a scam.

    I could go on but you get the picture. There are no bigger idiots than so-called ‘intellectual’ idiots.

  11. Sister Wolf Says:

    David – Obama has disappointed me, but the obstructionist behavior of the Republicans has disgusted me beyond words. In my opinion, an anti-intellectual idiot is a much bigger idiot than an intellectual idiot.

  12. Sister Wolf Says:

    Mo in KCMO – Canada, or if they won’t take us, France.

  13. Ann Says:

    Herman Cain is the worst. Our family names our Thanksgiving turkey every year, and Cain is quite seriously in the running.

  14. David Duff Says:

    “the obstructionist behavior of the Republicans”

    But for the first two years of his presidency he controlled both Houses!

    Ann, you mean that ‘Cain the turkey’ brings to mind something which is tasty and delicious, which is an example of providing something people want and the production of which has helped provide jobs and prosperity for thousands of people all over the country. As opposed, say, to the over-cooked rabbit in the White House who has lost jobs faster than anyone since the depression! Enjoy!

  15. Srenna Says:

    I don’t know why his name is still being bandied about as a contender. Yes, his funcion as comic relief has expired. Nor do I ‘get’ Rick Perry (who just looks like dumbest ass ever).

  16. Jaimi Says:

    Y’all think Romney is gonna come out as some kind of absurd underdog and sweep this shit? Weird times. He was my governor, kind of. Away in Utah doing fuck all a good deal of the time, but hey! I appreciate the sweet ass free healthcare till 26 especially since I can’t find a real full time job and don’t want to throw myself into grad school and take on even more debt for no reason, but still. I mean I’d rather be living in these times than say, during the plague or something, but I still wish we could all collectively up our standards and say ‘enough of this bullshit’ and force Obama to be more badass. I may sound like a young naif, but I certainly prefer this over the George W Bush years. What depressing times those were, no doubt leading up to our current, seemingly intractable economic (and social, but hell, both are a long time building) crises. It hasn’t gotten better though.

    Fortunately, if some Republican dickbag like this here tool or Romney or whatever clown they come up with the country’s dumb and frustrated enough to elect, I am in a position to abscond to grad school in some more hospitable locale.

  17. Andra Says:

    I think this Cain person has “moxy”. I’m not quite sure what that is but I reckon he has some.
    Yes?

  18. Sister Wolf Says:

    Andra – if “moxie” means he’s a fucking bastard who thinks he can get away with sexually harassing at least four woman, then yes.

  19. Sister Wolf Says:

    Jaimi – Canada looks better every single day.

  20. lisa Says:

    Listen to yourselves – what a bunch of superficial, angry, venom-spewing zombies! Please don’t vote. You are obviously ill-informed and don’t follow the real news. Or do you get your news from The View and Jon Stewart. You seem like mindless people who can’t think for themselves and follow the rest of the sheep guided by the mainstream media. Get real thought.

  21. so obvious what this is all about... Says:

    The Republicans are attempting to match the Democrats in image not quality. Clinton was a woman so they dug up a woman and found Palin. Obama is Afro-American so they dug up an Afro-American man and found Cain yet they are unprepared and under qualified. They need to apear progressive because fat old white guys seem so antiquated now by comparison. If the Democrats had an Asian gay the republicans would find one too. If the Democrats had a handicapped Hispanic they Rep. would find one too. This very act is going against all of the progress that is being made. Everyone says this is not about race…the Rep. are making it about race and sending us all back by 100 years! It’s insulting to think the American public is that stupid that we will be satisfied with the fact that they show someone brown or with boobs or that we won’t see beyond that to the issues. Politics is nothing but images, packaging, marketing and advertising which is totally different and separate than governing and organizing a community and nation.

  22. Sister Wolf Says:

    so obvious – Fuckers.

    lisa – Kiss my ass. With all due respect.

  23. Debbie Says:

    I agree. He’s an idiot … and he’s always wearing that stupid assed cowboy hat.

  24. Dru Says:

    I don’t know anything about this man except that his last name reminds me of the brilliant, ruthless (and thankfully fictional) Admiral Helena Cain.
