[Update: There is already a Draft Cain 2012 website up!]
Oh wait, the picture doesn’t follow the mainstream meme does it!
I guess Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann’s running narrative of extremists running the Tea Party doesn’t quite fit the pic.
Herman Cain is the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and is contemplating a run for the executive branch of the U.S. government.
The mainstream media will be suffering a sort of mental aneurysm at the thought of a “black” republican, and Tea Partier at that, gunning for their Messiah’s seat.
The liberal political blogosphere will be going hebephrenic!
“They’re ready for a non-establishment candidate,” Cain, casually dressed in a blue shirt and slacks, said here in Florida during an interview Thursday after addressing an enthusiastic crowd at a “Spending Revolt” rally. “I will run proudly as a non-establishment candidate. I think the public has an appetite for a non-establishment candidate.”
Though he may not be well-known on the national stage, the stage 4 cancer survivor and chairman of the Hermanator PAC is a star among the conservative grassroots. Activists who showed up to the Americans for Prosperity’s “Spending Revolt” bus tour this week didn’t hide their admiration.
“He’s a beautiful package,” said Bob Prescott, a Jacksonville man selling campaign buttons, while Cain addressed an audience in Tampa. Prescott said he’s heard the Tea Party star speak multiple times and would support a Cain bid in 2012.
Not bad at all.
