As a friend of mine said, for someone who had never stolen anything, Cageâ€™s character sure picked an ambitious first target. You could say the same thing about Herman Cain trying to win the presidency as his first political office. Based on this weekâ€™s announcement Cain obviously didnâ€™t have Cageâ€™s screenwriters.
I never really could buy into Cain as a serious candidate. Even Ronald Reagan, though he had the simple folk charm of a political outsider, was a two term governor of California before seeking the Presidency.
Cain’s 15 minutes was largely due to the party seeking someone to be the anti-Mitt. That clearly isn’t Cain. Who who will be the next anti-Mitt? Gingrich? That’s about all that’s left, before we’re going to have to decide whether to swallow the bitter pill.
