Yes We Cain!

A recent article in the American Thinker speculates about the delightful prospect of Herman Cain facing off with barack obama in 2012.
Herman Cain winning the Florida straw poll is encouraging.  It means an honest, straight-talking non-politician can cut through the flowery rhetoric and be taken seriously. 
Amen, brother!

Sadly, the main thrust of the story is that the "Herminator" is (a) a long shot to win, and (b) not ready for prime time. I'm not going to get into either one of those two assertions today. Rather, I'm going to focus on the remainder of the article and indulge in the fantasy that Mr. Cain actually wins the Republican nomination. 
Right out of the gate, the first thing that would be striking about a Herman Cain vs. Barack Obama presidential race would be the comparison between Barry dragging out and setting up two Teleprompters to answer a few questions and Herman standing next to him, hands in his pockets, pithy retort at the ready.

On jobs, the President's usual approach is to attempt to razzle-dazzle with flowery rhetorical proposals that sound good on the campaign trail but, in practice, don't work.  Herman's method is to listen to his opponents, look at the crowd, smile, and off-the-cuff respond to half-baked ideas with: "It's time to get real, folks. Hope and change ain't working. Hope and change is not a solution. Hope and change is not a job."

After watching Bobble Head Barack turn from right to left reading what someone tells him he believes off a scrolling Teleprompter, oh, to be able to watch Herman Cain lean over a debate podium and hear him say, "We need a leader, not a reader."
Then there's the racial issue.
On the left, racism is defined as: "People who oppose Obama," and in the past Mr. Cain has in fact admitted, "I guess I'm a racist."

The confusion surrounding having two black candidates for president would make for interesting theater.  Take for instance Black Panther poll watchers standing guard for racial equality.  How would they know whom to wave their clubs at on Election Day?  Do the Panthers intimidate whites voting for Obama or blacks voting for Cain?  How would they figure out who is voting for whom?  What a quandary.
Oh, delicious irony!

Even better: a Herman Cain - Allen West ticket. Wouldn't that blow some liberal minds.

Imagine. A successful businessman and Baptist preacher paired up with a genuine war hero running against a community organizer and muslim sympathizer who's sidekick is ... what ... a former senator and perpetual motion gaffe machine. The choice couldn't get much more clear-cut than that.

Unsurprisingly, however, the loonies on the left are revealing their true colors. For example, we have Morgan Freeman spouting all sorts of nonsense.

Morgan Freeman has become a pathetic caricature of a dignified black man. While that is sad, it's nowhere near as disturbing, disgusting, and disgraceful as this.

And they say the Tea Party is racist...
