I don’t usually use this blog to get into politics, but this seems to be the season for it and there are a lot of lessons that we can learn along the way. So while I’m not advocating any one candidate for nomination I’ve noticed plenty of worthy stories along the way, some inspiring and some ridiculous. This is the funniest one I’ve seen so far.
Herman Cain seems to be the running gag of the Republican nomination. He’s got no political experience (which many people like but seems a bit naive), speaks really bluntly (plain-spoken is the positive spin), and has been finishing last in every poll I’ve seen. So you’d think a guy like that would quietly bow out, right?
Well, it turns out even Mr. Cain thought the time was right to go, at least twice so far during his campaign. I wonder what would give him second thoughts? Besides the obvious, of course. So why is he still in the running? Well, you see, there was a straw poll just done in Florida and he won it.
So is that a good reason to stay in the race? Considering the fact that these things never ever predict the ultimate winner and aren’t done scientifically at all they seem to be just as reliable as predicting lottery numbers. But for some reason Mr. Cain has got it into his head that he’s got more reason now than before to put more money and effort into his campaign.
I’m sorry but it just seems cruel to get his hopes up like this. Let the man retire and go back to pizzas. If this is all it takes to keep him in a hopeless race I’ll come out with the Cory Poll every other Tuesday and keep him running past the actual election. I think that would make great entertainment, which is really what the primaries are about, aren’t they?
Share your thoughts, okay?
