Hermain Cain for president? cue the womp womp

November 25, 2011

Via a friend on fb, who probably got it from a news outlet

Somehow, there are still people who believe Herman Cain is a serious presidential candidate. Perhaps, seeing the clues 1 by 1, each easily dismissed if taken alone, theyre missing the big picture.

● In his closing statement at the Fox News debate in Iowa, Cain said “A poet once said, life can be a challenge…” and went on to quote a few more lines. What he was quoting was the theme song from the Pokemon movie.

● On Fox News, Cain flabbergasted his interviewers when he said that abortion should be illegal, and that its the woman’s choice whether to have one. “Thats her choice. That is not government’s choice. I support life from conception,” he said. “No, abortion should not be legal.”

● On Meet The Press, Cain was asked if he was part of the neoconservative movement. He had never heard of it.

● He claimed that Jesus was sentenced to death by a “liberal court.”

● He said he would not be comfortable appointing a Muslim to his cabinet or as a federal judge. He then clarified that Muslim cabinet members would be subject to an extra loyalty oath. The Constitution, of course, specifically prohibits religious tests for public office.

● In an interview with Chris Wallace of Fox News, Cain was asked about the Palestinian right of return. He didnt know what that meant. Later, after he got someone to explain it to him, he clarified that he doesnt think Israel has a big problem with the people returning. Israel, of course, does.

● In fact, he doesnt even think the Palestinians are a real thing. In an interview with the Israeli newspaper Israel Hayom, he referred to “the so-called Palestinian people.”

● His initial position on securing the border with Mexico was to build a moat, and put alligators in it. He later dismissed that as a joke, his usual walkback, and said instead that it should be an electrified fence with a sign on it that says “It will kill you.”

● He said that he believes China is a potential threat because they are trying to develop nuclear weapons. China has had nuclear weapons since the 1960s.

● In an interview, trying to address concerns about Cain’s lack of knowledge of the world and foreign policy, a campaign advisor said, “Almost every day … Herman Cain is handed a 1-page briefing from his chief foreign policy advisor on news from around the world.” 1 page, almost every day.

● Cain clarified about foreign policy: “Im not supposed to know anything about foreign policy.” Also: “We’ve got plenty of experts, and a leader knows how to use those experts. We need a leader, not a reader.” This could be a reference to a line from the Simpsons Movie: “I was elected to lead, not to read.”

● As Cain rose in the polls, a reporter asked him whether he was the new flavor of the month. Cain decided to own the “flavor” analogy, and actually declared what flavor he was: Haagen Dazs Black Walnut. “If youre Haagen Dazs Black Walnut,” he said, “you dont go away. Some of these other flavors of the month have no substance. Black Walnut has staying power.” Haagen Dazs Black Walnut was discontinued in 2009.

● Faced with the story of multiple sexual harassment allegations from his time running the National Restaurant Association, Cain claimed never to have met the one woman who was not remaining anonymous. A picture quickly surfaced of Cain with her a month earlier.

● Cain’s answer to the allegations is that, for every woman who would say he sexually harassed her, there are “thousands” who would say he didnt.

● At a campaign appearance in Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood, he asked, “How do you say ‘delicious’ in Cuban?” Then, asked about the “wet-foot, dry-foot” policy for Cuban refugees being allowed to stay in the US, he didnt know what that meant, and was hustled away by his press handler.

● Herman Cain on bankruptcy: “You see, the United States federal government, folks, has no jurisdiction over bankruptcy law. States do!” Article 1, section 8 of the Constitution authorizes Congress to enact “uniform laws on the subject of bankruptcies throughout the United States.”

● In an interview with the editors of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Cain was asked the softball question of whether he agrees with Obama’s handling of Libya. “Okay, Libya,” Cain says, then pauses for more than eight seconds. He then asks the interviewer to confirm the facts, that Obama supported the rebels. He starts to say he disagrees with the handling, but stops short and says “No, that was a different one,” as if recalling the wrong set of lines. He then gives a rambling response that makes no sense.

● Cain accuses the media of taking his Libya answer out of context, that it was just a pause before he answered. In fact, the newspaper posted the entire, unedited video.

Is there really any doubt left that the Herman Cain campaign is a demonstration of how crazy you can be and still be taken seriously as a presidential candidate in this country?

Did you know the amount of Adderall produced in the last 15 years has increased ten fold? That’s 10x the amount of aderall being consumed(almost entirely) in the United States. I’m sure that the number of kids with ADD and ADHD has increased by a multiple of 10 as well during that time…or maybe it’s evidence that we as a country have a problem with prescription drug abuse.

This article did a good job or laying out the systematic way that big pharma has gone about marketing stimulants and manipulating the supply of the drugs thru patents and when that fails, expensive litigation and shady business practices.

I’m sick and I can’t believe how much fluid can come out of my body when i’m sick. I feel like I should have lost a least a couple of kilos in snot by now. I get sick once a year, but it’d be real nice to find a way to cut that down to once every other year. Also, despite being sick my ego is in a good place. Coach Matt from bjj on his division a no-gi worlds. I haven’t rolled with that many brown belts, but he insta-taps me every time I roll with him and he’s cool about it…can’t help but be happy for someone like that.

I still can’t surf like cory goral, but I did manage to catch a couple. Crowd at hb seems to be decidely better than at other spots in socal. EF shopping on the daily now. Honda Cesar is pushing hard for a crx, but it’s just too ugly for me to want to spend 600hrs/year in it. I did the math and i’ll spend at least 600 hrs in a car next year if I’m still commuting to work and gf’s at the same frequency.
