Hey Herman, Yo' Mammy's Callin'!

Honest to God, where did Herman Cain come from? And when is he going back? I'm sick of hearing his fake country accent, his idiotic plans to create job growth, and his criticisms of the President, black Congressional leaders, and America in general. Cain presents himself as some kind of down-home, plain-spoken country simpleton, and I honestly can't make up my mind if it's an act or not. His simplistic plans for the economy, his racist statement that he would not hire a Muslim in his administration (don't worry Herman, you'll never have to make that decision), and now, his criticism of progressive African-Americans, all make me want to take off my belt and beat the shit out of him the next time he's in Minneapolis. Cain is either a handkerchief-headed lawn jockey or a duplicitous charlatan and race-baiting huckster.

I'm not the only one disgusted by Cain's minstrel show, either. Jack & Jill Politics had this to offer about Cain's recent remarks:

Saying things like:
“Don’t blame Wall Street, don’t blame the big banks, if you don’t have a job and you’re not rich, blame yourself. It is not someone’s fault if they succeeded, it is someone’s fault if they failed.”
is basically spitting in the face of  teachers, police officers, firefighters, librarians and nurses who have dedicated their lives to serving the public and who now find themselves out of jobs due in part to Wall Street malfeasance. It’s saying to all those who were targeted for fraudulent mortgages, you don’t deserve the American Dream of a home. It’s saying to all those who worked hard and saw their pensions taken away by employers, your work ethic doesn’t matter. It’s saying to all the unemployed, you’re stupid and you don’t deserve the dignity of a job or any help to make a contribution to your country. It’s saying to all the recent graduates out of work, you’re a bunch of jerk-offs who don’t work on Wall Street and therefore don’t deserve to earn a living.

Then again, Herman says that I'm a racist:

GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cain said Tuesday that many liberal Democrats in the black community are "racist" for questioning his political ambitions as a black conservative Republican.
"A lot of these liberal, leftist folk in this country, that are black, they're more racist than the white people that they're claiming to be racist," Cain said Tuesday in a radio interview on the conservative Neal Boortz talk show.
Boortz interrupted Cain, saying he prefers the word "bigoted" to "racist."
"Ok, bigoted," Cain said. "How dare Herman Cain, first, run as a Republican? How dare Herman Cain be conservative? And how dare he move up in the polls, so that he just might challenge our beloved Obama? That's the problem they have."

Damn, where can I get some of what Herman is smoking?
