WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina - Herman Cain brought his campaign bus tour deep into "Tobacco Territory."

And GOPicky Magazine's Amos Soursuckle said that it was a brilliant move by the Republican presidential front runner or as Michele Bachmann refers to him in her speeches, "Da pizza bro."

Cain has caught lots of flack due to the fact that his latest campaign ad shows his Chief of Staff, Mark "Smokey" Block talking about how wonderful Cain is and how he is going to save the country and make it a nicer, safer, healthier place.

And then in the next-to-the-last scene we see Mr. Block put a cigarette to his mouth, take a deep puff, and exhale some cigarette smoke.

[EDITOR'S NOTE: I learned from an unnamed but extremely reliable source that they had to actually shoot that commercial five times because the cameraman kept coughing from the second hand smoke.]

When Mr. Cain was asked to comment on the cigarette commercial he replied that he could not make a comment because he had not seen the commercial in question. He said that he really has been much to busy campaigning to sit down and watch television.

He did say that he managed to catch the results show of Dancing With The Stars in which his favorite celebrity Chaz Bono was eliminated.

Afro Sheen Magazine is reporting that after the smoking commercial aired that Herman Cain's popularity with the American cigarette industry shot up by 700 percent.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
