Melting fast. Just like Herman. Not only that, but it now appears that it was, in fact, Haagen Dazs’ flavor of the month. Poor Herman. “Uzbekie-beckie-beckistan-stan-stan” has now been replaced by Great Silence.
Question to Herman Cain: ‘Do you agree with the president on Libya?’ Cain: “OK, Libya.” [pause] “President Obama supported the uprising, correct?” he asks, speaking carefully. “President Obama called for the removal of Qaddafi – just want to make sure we’re talking about the same thing before I say yes I agree, or no I didn’t agree. I do not agree with the way he handled it for the following reason – nope, that’s a different one.” [pause] “I gotta go back and see – um, I got all this stuff twirling around in my head. Specifically, what are you asking me. Did I agree or not disagree with Obama?”
Gulp. Three AM phone call: busy signal.
My pals over there on the far-right edge of the flat earth must be in shock this morning. Herman Cain was their last-best hope of defeating their arch enemy in November 2012. He was black, too! First it was The Donald; then Bachmann. After that, Perry. And now, The Herman melts like a black walnut cone on a warm Fall day.
But wait! Do you see what I see? The Newt is a-rising in the polls. Thrice-married, dirt-bag-ethics Newt Gingrich is knocking on the right-wing door. He wants in. He wants to carry the anybody-but-Romney torch this month.
What a conundrum. What’s an Obama-hating Teabagger to do??
