    Republicans think killing cute bunnies and pet goldfish is becoming of a Presidential contender?

    Herman Cain says goldfish, rabbit are safe | MNN - Mother Nature Network

    No need to worry about that rabbit*or goldfish in Herman Cain's surreal new "campaign" ads — he says no animals were harmed in the making of the videos.
    *
    It remains unclear, though, if we should be worried about Cain himself.
    *
    If you haven't seen the ads yet, brace yourself, then click here. Both feature the same little girl standing in a dystopian landscape and explaining a non-intuitive metaphor: goldfish = economy, mud = stimulus; rabbit = small business, catapult + shotgun = tax code. "Any questions?" the girl asks, twice, in each ad.
    *
    The ads have drawn criticism from animal-rights groups, including the Humane Society and PETA, which say they trivialize animal suffering. Cain's political action committee responded on YouTube that "the goldfish is fine," and Cain told Politico on Tuesday the rabbit is, too. "The liberals are trying to paint it like I'm killing animals," he said. "The rabbit that we shot was a toy, stuffed rabbit. It was not a real rabbit."

    He's the reason for workplace sexual harassment legislation.

    Repubs need to find another token. Where's JC these days?

    True. I hope they find a real one this time. One whose Black half actually shared the American Black experience.

    Any prominent American Black Democrat politicians on the scope?

    And really, where is JC?

    Come on, he's a Republican. Remember when they were holding their strategy meetings at a lesbian bondage bar? They're sleazy.

    .

    I don't think I'd classify him as "creepy". I think of him more as the male Sarah Palin, all simplistic platitudes and no substance, no indication of significant intellectual depth or breadth.

    Nice hat, though. Gotta say.
