There was a time when I was rooting for Herman Cain to win the Republican nomination. The thought of having two black men running for president was too beautiful; I could just imagine all those racist cracker heads exploding in unison like some bloody Darwinian symphony, with Rush Limbaugh‘s bloated belfry as the finale.
But now this art performance (to quote MSNBC‘s Rachel Maddow) has gone too far, even for me. Cain’s hate-filled, Christians-only, blatantly misogynist run needs to stop. The folks at BalloonJuice strip off the sugar-coating:
What a disgusting, bigoted piece of crap.
I’m not sure how much more bullshit could possibly spew from Herman Cain’s face-hole. From claiming that he would make Muslims take a loyalty oath, to his not-at-all credible claims that he didn’t sexually assault and harass several women during his tenure at the National Restaurant Association, to his jokes about electrified fences along the Mexican border, to calling Nancy Pelosi “Princess Nancy” to calling vegetable pizza “sissy pizza” that real men would never eat, Herman Cain keeps demonstrating that he is, to be blunt, an asshole.
And now there’s this doozy: On Friday, Herman Cain made a campaign stop Cain The Holy Land Experience, a Christian-theme amusement park in central Florida where he intimated that he wouldn’t want a dirty Muslim furriner to treat him for his cancer. You know—because there are Muslim “sleeper doctors” out there trying to kill dumb fucks like Herman Cain:
Cain speaks for nearly a half an hour and despite a couple fleeting “999” mentions, keeps his speech to topics of faith and his recent battle with cancer. He begins with a story about how he knew he would survive when he discovered that his physician was named “Dr. Lord,” that the hospital attendant’s name was “Grace” and that the incision made on his chest during the surgery would be in the shape of a “J.”
“Come on, y’all. As in J-E-S-U-S! Yes! A doctor named Lord! A lady named Grace! And a J-cut for Jesus Almighty,” Cain boomed.
He did have a slight worry at one point during the chemotherapy process when he discovered that one of the surgeon’s name was “Dr. Abdallah.”
“I said to his physician assistant, I said, ‘That sounds foreign—not that I had anything against foreign doctors—but it sounded too foreign,” Cain tells the audience. “She said, ‘He’s from Lebanon.’ Oh, Lebanon! My mind immediately started thinking, wait a minute, maybe his religious persuasion is different than mine! She could see the look on my face and she said, ‘Don’t worry, Mr. Cain, he’s a Christian from Lebanon.’”
“Hallelujah!” Cain says. “Thank God!”
Herman Cain? Please go away. Just get yourself a Fox News talkshow and end this farce. Or, if you prefer, find an exceedingly hot fire and hurl yourself in it.
Thanks in advance.
