It goes without saying that I think Hermann Cain has no chance of being the Republican nominee. That said, I’ve gotten to kind of like the guy. I mostly agree with Chauncey de Vega’s critique of Cain on racial questions, but Cain’s 999 plan is much more specific and implementable than all the craziness about silver dimes and electrified border moats that we hear from the other Republican candidates during the debates. Obviously, it would be disastrous for the country; that’s a given.
“When they ask me who’s the president of Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan I’m going to say, you know, I don’t know. Do you know?”
It’s not quite Enema Man and Snoopy Snoopy Poop Dogg cassette tapes for your iTunes player, but I think Cain will get there eventually if he’s given enough airtime.
