Republican leaders are finally getting hip to the jive as to what is going to help them gain momentum going into the 2012 elections. They are going to need to have a black man of their own to run up against Obama.
Although some thought that Michael Steele had all the qualities they were looking for, i.e. he was black and he was a man, they've been quite disappointed in his performance of late and have come to the conclusion that he is more trouble than he's worth. Sure he dresses all nice and his diction is spot on, but his "I can do anything I want to and you can't stop me" speech of late is just a tad ungrateful sounding for those who put him where he is today. It was looking mighty bleak for the GOP to find anyone who would go along with the program and be the right skin color.
But now Republicans have hope. They have found a black man that they think might just fit the bill. His name is Herman Cain and he is raring to take on that other black man already in the White House. Of course, there is one little glitch, he's more a Tea Partier than a dyed-in-the-wool Republican, but hey, with enough money, anything is possible. Anyone is possible. He's even using all the right buzz words calling himself a potential "dark horse" to look out for and commenting that a nice cup of "iced tea" tastes mighty fine on a hot summer day.
Yes, Herman Cain is a man who believes in American exceptionalism and to prove he's going to be a tough candidate to beat, he's set up a Political Action Committee which he aptly named the Hermanator-PAC. And, in case you doubt this man's ability to get the right people behind him that he'll need to forge ahead with his dream of becoming the 2nd black president of the United States, consider this, he already has secured the solid backing of none other than Joe, the Plumber. Now if he could just get Sarah Palin to climb aboard the Soul Train.
