Herman Cain, Remixed


If you missed the extraordinary campaign ad for Republican presidential frontrunner Herman Cain because you've been too busy with other things, please enjoy this modified version of the spot, which contains only the best parts of the original work. It is truly a remarkable age, and astounding country, in which we live.

Ha. That ad came as a surprise to NOBODY who has been watching Block's previous outings for Cain. It's also not bizarre in the slightest for anyone who's read any of Cain's latest book "This is Herman Cain!," a portion of which is written as a future diary of Cain's first months in the White House. It also contains lines like this:

"Natural resources are there for a reason. Use them! That's why they are natural."

POLL LEADER!

I thought Sarah Palin was the epitome of the Dunning-Kruger Effect in American politics. I was wrong.

Ha! I made that. Thanks for the love.

Sorry, I've not been paying attention. Which David Lynch film is this from?

Best part is the wheelbarrow-full of video treatment they slathered onto their poorly lit, poorly composed footage. Magic Bullet Looks is not an aesthetic, nameless editor who cut this together!

If you had told me that the X-Files Cigarette-Smoking Man was alive and working as a Republican campaign operative, I have to admit I would have guessed that he'd be one of Romney's guys.

I heard that Cain wasn't trying, but I'm a little surprised he's pressing his office staff into campaign spots on their smoke break.

I think it was Chris Rock who said that we'll know true progress when a black man (lacking exceptional smarts or charm) can fail up like President Bush did. I'm rooting for you, Herman Cain!

Now if only we get a competent lady–let alone a dip shit one–into the Oval office.

Cain likes Extra Cheese.

I thought Peter Sellars was dead. Guess you can't keep a good man down.

NY Mag's daily blog nailed it today — In the words of one YouTube commenter who we're not going to try to top, "I imagine Herman Cain is closing the curtains behind him at that shady motel, turning slowly, and making that creepy smile at a scared prostitute on the bed."
