    Straw Poll-ish joke?

    If only their 9 failures were a sign of anything other than “They’ll vote for whoever the hell they’re told to because a Republican votes not with their heart, not with their brain, but with their childhood preacher’s voice in their head saying ‘Democrats are eeeeeevil…Jesus wants us to put a Republican in office…sssssssssssss.’”

    God has decided the Republicans shall go without a savior.

    Don’t worry Cain won’t get anywhere near the nomination.
    Just the flavor of the week.

    It is traditional in American politics that “any candidate” (no name, face, policies, record, warts, or skeletons) almost always wins a hypothetical matchup against a real person. Of course, as soon as you end up with “THIS candidate” instead of “ANY candidate”, the benefits of being hypothetical vanish. This has in fact been exactly what’s happened with every will-o-the-wisp frontrunner the GOP has come up with this go-round — a brief flash of enthusiasm (and about a week atop the polls) until everybody gets a closer look at the regrettable reality.

    Although thirty years of mostly Republican rule have harmed America’s schools, our electorate isn’t stupid enough to replace President Obama with billionaire, job-cutting, flip-flopping Mitt Romney, whose main occupation for the last ten years has been running for president.

    Like nearly every Steve Benson ‘toon, this comic is delusional, with absolutely no sense of reality, since the voters who are increasingly abandoning the narcissistic sock-puppet in the White House obviously haven’t made their choice for someone who would be the best OBVIOUS replacement. I assure you that if Cain is that choice, he will crush Obama. Which leads to yet another issue, and that’s all of the utter buffoonery and ammo that Obama provides for any of his opponents (and which nattering morons like Benson ignore for strictly partisan reasons). Obama’s “record” provides the most obvious reason for anyone to either stay at home, or to choose the other guy.

    @BrianCrook

    Oh, you don’t want to go there, not with Obama spending the whole of his life preparing to get elected president, or writing about himself (with the help of his terrorist friend Bill Ayers). And “flip-flopping?” Obama hasn’t completely turned on every “promise” that he made in 2008? How does it feel being a mindless partisan?

    Cain will not crush Obama. He can’t even add, and the more he talks, the more it shows. One reason that qualified Republicans are staying out of the race is that when they lose in 2012 based on the hatred of the block-everything GOP congress, they won’t be able to run again in 2016 because they’ll have established themselves as losers.

    To the cartoonist and all of my fellow commentators: Biased much?

    As people wake up, I think the TEA party is about to get creamed. (And yohan, Roger Ailes has done far more to destroy democracy and American values than Ayers.)

    Tigger, your voted twice for the Bush-Cheney & once for McCain-Palin. It figures that you would support Herman Cain.

    Most Americans, however, were too smart to vote for the previous candidates and are too smart to agree with you now.

    Yohan, your claims aren’t worth any response. “The terrorist Bill Ayers”? Are you still trying to deny women equal pay for equal work, too? Do you want all Blacks to go back to the back of the bus?

    All these battles are over. Equality & fairness have won. Now, we simply need economic fairness.
