    An interesting take.

    She pointed out that Hermain Cain closed the first debate with a line he quoted from "a great poet" but was really from a verse of the first Pokemon movie theme song.

    Herman Cain had no idea what the "right of return" was..but fudged it anyway and said it had to be negotiated (By the way..this will definitely lose the one-issue jewish vote in Florida and New York).

    Herman Cain's commercials are bizzare to say the least.

    Herman Cain 999 plan may have come from the SimCity video game. And his court settlement on the sexual harrassment suit was on 9/99. He also had a chapter in his book called something like "The number 45 is is favorite number". That equals nine.

    He had a bizzare interview on FOX about abortion..which left the FOX interviewers with their mouth's open.

    He noted that he will be doing a book tour during the campaign.

    He said he was a "Koch brother from another mother".

    She compared it to the Carl Paladino campaign in New York...which was in itself really nuts. But I thought that was more an example of a rich guy meltdown..and an indulgent Republican party.

    But what the heck..it may explain alot!

    That said..I really hope he gets the nod! :lol:

    If he gets through the current debacle, I'm betting he gets the nod. Of course, I don't know what his odds are (apparently there's a site out there which decides such things).

    If I were controlling the GOP, I'd be pushing Gary Johnson and Jon Huntsman as hard and often as possible.

    Yeah. ... that definitely sounded sexual.

    Just me?

    Everything sounds sexual to men.

    Otherwise, I don’t believe Cain will get the nomination.

    But republicans are so frustrated and miserable right now they may just say the hell with it and nominate him anyway.

    I am hoping they do so. Would be another New York governor race all over again.

    Bear in mind..I don't think this is performance art. I think it's another rich guy meltdown.

    So a white left wing pop-culture chick thinks a Black man is less than a man and just ...performance art? Racism is just as alive in the left wing world as it was in the 1860's and the 1960's.

    Where do you get that from?

    Cain's campaign has been bizzare. She's comparing it to Carl Paladino. Paladino wasn't black.
