Herman Cain: Adios M.F.

There is no other way to express it, Herman Cain is an egotistical, narcissistic, womanizing, lying disgrace for a human being whose "campaign" succeeded only in wasting tax payer money (body guards), debate time, tv time and the collective conscience of a certain demographic and psychographic constituent who actually considered voting for him.  Not that I care about their loss.

Rather than carry on with the rant, I'm re-posting tweets from Andy Borowitz, whose humor makes the whole thing almost palatable.   

Some Andyisms:
  • BREAKING: As Cain Drops Out, Pro-Adultery Voters Switch to Gingrich
  • Cain has suspended his campaign after his wife refused to suspend her disbelief. 
  • BREAKING: Cain Quits Race; Comedians Declare Day of Mourning
  • Gingrich is the intellectual of the GOP field in the same way that Moe was the intellectual of the Stooges.
  • POLL: Majority of Americans Beginning to Think Republicans are 'Just Kidding'

I said "almost".

Priceless! I love your title, it says it all. I'm smiling now, thanks for the fun headlines... :-)

Blissed-Out Grandma said...

This puts everything in a much better perspective!

Julia said...

This would be funny if not for the fact that it is so true!

Judy said...

Now can you believe Trump will come to Iowa for moderate a GOP Debate. These people are all crazy!

"egotistical, narcissistic, womanizing, lying disgrace"
--So, CG, did you feel that strongly about Clinton who's many affairs were well known even before he became president? then his perjury. I hope you did not vote for him the 2nd time around, to be fair.

DJan: yes, it's Andy Borowitz making you smile. He's hilarious. His tweets make me laugh out loud.

Blissed Out: I am not so sure there can be perspective on this guy or any other Republican candidate right now. They are all weird.

Julia: I hear ya!

Judy: Trump. You'd think that SOB was selling a book too like Cain. My husband is convinced Cain figured out this was a way to sell his book. kThe American Taxpayers should send him a bill.

Mmm: I understand why you say this. I did vote for Clinton the 2nd time. I hate to admit it but I voted for Perot who made sense to me in 1992. That was before I realized he was a few bricks short of a logical load. As for Clinton's peccadilloes, I was appalled. But, I honestly felt he was the best candidate for the Presidency. He was certainly well informed. He knew his stuff. Herman Cain is a poseur and he doesn't know anything. I despise that. Clinton was smart, knew his foreign policy, his domestic policy, his tax reform, his ability to create a surplus in our social security. He has his faults and they are many but he benefitted Middle America, something the Republicans seem uninterested in.

I'm so glad he's gone. At least I hope he is for good.

How someone could run for office and not think that his past would matter.

Mama Zen said...

These tweets are priceless!

I actually got a kick out of watching that slimeball wriggle like a worm whenever the tough questions started to roll. Gonna miss you, Cainie. But not in the long run.

Nance said...

I'm thrilled to be a blogger during this primary run-up; material-wise, it's ALL low-hanging fruit! And, lucky me, I live in an open primary state.

Okay, I live in SC. Nothing unluckier than that. But at least I get to toy with my primary vote. And we have a beach on one side of us and three rivers on the other. The rest is all that vaunted "material."

Murr Brewster said...

Yeah. I don't much care where all the front-running penises have been, unless their caretakers are being hypocritical about something. I do care that they're bat-shit crazy and have exactly the wrong answers for every problem we've got.

Baino said...

Ah at last a post I can comment on. Yes he's a jerk of the highest magnitude and had a nerve having a crack at it in the first place.

California Girl said...

JC: Most of these guys have pasts that matter, it would seem. I think we are too accepting of the need to ignore their personal lives and focus only on their public lives & accomplishments. My husband disagrees but the use & misuse of power says a great deal.

Mama Z: Yeah. I usually get at least one guffaw from his tweets daily.

Beer: How 'bout one of your famous cartoons a la Cain? You & Brandon (or are you Brandon?) interviewing him as he spouts "9 9 9" or "I'm at peace with my God. I'm at peace with my wife."

Nance: Welcome to my blog!!! You can make a huge difference in SC. Wouldn't it be a shock to the GOP system if "None of the Above" won in SC? (Can you do that? Write in "None of the Above"?) I feel my next blog post coming on...

Murr: "bat shit crazy" is an apt, descriptive term for much of the field. At this point, I'll take Romney as a viable candidate altho' I doubt President Obama wants to run against Mitt vs his other choices (all of whom are a little or a lot bat shit crazy).

Baino: You mean this clown was making the news in AUS? Gawd, what your country must think of us. egad. (how are you Helen?)

Cole said...

Borowitz ought to throw his hat in the ring...why not! (btw- love the new masthead).

California Girl said...

Cole: I thought you might.

injaynesworld said...

Oh, those are gold. That's why Andy gets the big bucks. Big smiles!
