Campaign Supernova



I did a lot of drugs many years ago -- LSD, ecstasy, heroin, etc.

Never at any point during that period was I insanely delirious enough to be able to dream up anything even remotely approaching Herman Cain's new campaign commercial.

It seems mildly weird for most of its 56-second run time -- like, as Gawker joked, you're listening to a drunk homeless guy ramble outside of an Olive Garden. But then the 40-second mark comes -- and, well, that's when the acid kicks in and knocks you on your ass.

There is no way -- no way -- that this man is serious about running for president.

Well written Chez — That was very funny!

seriously, what did I just watch? Did they tap Taylor Dayne for the theme song?

Herman Cain saying in Arnold voice: "Put the cigarette in your mouth and blow smoke. No, no. Do it sexy. Like the way I do it when I'm up on stage during the debates."

wow. just wow.

Holy. Fucking. Shit. What the hell WAS that? How do I get my hands on the outtakes? I swear that was the ghostly essence of Peter Sellers playing Art.

And about being the head of Friends of Herman Cain - isn't that the PAC that broke the law by having the name of a candidate in the PAC name? Great pedigree.

But it's the smile that really creeps the shit out of me.

What you wrote about the acid kicking in at :40 is more than just hyperbole. I'm almost afraid to watch that again.

Just spit beer all over my monitor.

Thanks a lot.

Whoa. I guess this one replaced the other one where he let his dog poop in the parking strip and didn't pick it up. Edgy.

I probably shouldn't have seen this right after watching William Shatner's video for his cover version of 'Bohemian Rhapsody.'

I've done my brain irreparable damage now.

It's an ad for people who're fed up with Big Government telling them they can't smoke and drink and have sex with cheap hookers. Because The Herminator doesn't care about liberal elitists, or about business-as-usual in Washington. He's a bad-ass rogue maverick.

To show that he's a REAL leader, Rick Perry will launch his latest Michael Bay-style video with his Campaign Director shoving OxyContin suppositories up his ass.

I'm betting there are other versions of the ad wherein Mark Block:

1) Cleans one of his guns

2) Throws week old pizza crusts at homeless people

3) Punts a puppy

If would have blown a smoke ring, I would have voted for Cain.

He's running for president of flavor country. Duh!

Herman Cain is a plant by a wealthy Democrat with an exceptionally good sense of humor.

Either that, or we are living in Twin Peaks.

agrazingmoose - The lefty tin foil hat brigade (of which I am a proud member) say he is a long time political grifter paid off by the Koch Bros and their ilk. For more humor look for Cain's internet ad where the librul cowpoke spits tobacco juice on the good conservative cowpoke. It is even more wierderer.
