Herman Cain Is In

Herman Cain threw his hat into the ring yesterday, running as a Republican candidate for POTUS. I don't know Herman Cain, but I think he's certainly someone to watch. Chances are he's not going to be a leftist media darling like John McCain was--just sayin'. His background: from South Carolina, Cain has a Bachelor's degree in math, Master's degree in computer science, former Navy analyst, former president and CEO of the fourth largest pizza chain in the country (Godfather's), former chairman of the board for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, great speaking ability (able to think on his feet, probably won't have to be constantly plugged into a teleprompter), and an abiding commitment to conservative principles and small government.

You know, one thing we have to thank Obama for: we've already done the blackety, black, black, black, awesome, awesome, awesome thing with him, so we don't EVER have to do that again. We can simply look at the guy's qualifications and not the color of his skin (gee, where have I heard that one before--oh yeah, Martin Luther King). So thank you, Barry Barack Obama Soetoro Soebarkah! Although considering the double standard and hypocrisy of the left, watch for them to come out with an "Uncle Tom" meme for Cain.

This is Herman Cain taking on a group of liberals who were looking for a fight at one of his events. He gave them one. Heh.

Charles Krauthammer has said that Herman Cain's candidacy is for "entertainment purposes only." Really Charles? I don't think people like you get it, Charles. We are sick of the status quo, coming from both sides of the aisle.

Update. In his interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday this morning, Herman Cain just had a "Sarah Palin moment"--Wallace asked him about Israel and Palestine and the "right of return," and it was pretty clear that Cain didn't know what Wallace was referring to. He managed to stumble through an answer, but it was a very bad moment.
