Herman, Herman, Herman ... Why did you have to go here?
The video above shows that the man is in love with himself and delusional.
It seems that some of our friends to the right of the political middle feel as if they may have found their great black hope, and his name is Herman Cain. Frankly, I've largely tried to give this man Cain the benefit of the doubt as he has shoehorned his way into the media spotlight largely through his willingness to takes shots at President Barack Obama. In all honesty, one good way to find a place in the media spotlight is as a black politician or pundit who is willing to verbally attack President Obama (Lloyd Marcus, Jesse Lee Peterson, Michael Steele, etc.).
This all brings me to some comments that Cain made at a tea party (yes, there was at least one black man at a tea party) event in Florida.
Here is what Cain had to say:
"The liberal mainstream media, notice how they have tried to destroy Sarah Palin. Notice how the more popular Michele Bachmann gets, the more they try to destroy her. You want to know why they go after those two ladies more viciously? Because they know that Michele Bachmann or Sarah Palin is going to draw a lot of the women vote away from the Democrat Party."Bachmann and Palin have done (and continue to do) more to destroy themselves then the so-called mainstream media could ever do. I am not a woman, but I have a hard time seeing many independent or left-wing women gravitating to Bachmann or Palin ... just saying.
But, that is just the beginning of what Cain had to say. It is interesting to see how far we've come in society when some people are seeking out a great black hope.
More from Cain:
"They are scared to death of that, if they were to run and get the nomination. They are doubly scared that a real black man might run against Barack Obama."Is he, of all people, trying to say Barack Obama is not a real black man? Negro, please.
Does Cain really think he is that real black man? As they say on ESPN, "Come on, man."
Real Clear Politics:
UPDATE: "Cain spokeswoman Ellen Carmichael told POLITICO that Cain's race remarks had nothing to do with him challenging Obama's racial origin. "'He was referring to himself in the first person,'" she said. "'He was saying that there could be a general election with two black men.'"
