GOP Race: Is Herman Cain The Next Martin Luther King?

Submitted by on October 7, 2011 – 10:00 am2 Comments

With Chris Christie and some lady not supported by 66% of Republicans officially out of the GOP presidential race, Herman Cain‘s star continues to rise following his impressive debate performances and surprise victory in the Florida Straw Poll.

So he should have enjoyed some media praise and softball questions as a potential Golden Boy, not yet subject to the intense scrutiny of a frontrunner, when he dropped by The View last week. But things got a little bumpy when co-host Joy Behar grilled Cain on his belief that homosexuality is a choice.

“Well, you show me the science that says that it’s not, and I could be persuaded,” said the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza.

Well Herman, here you go.

Meanwhile, Stephen Colbert noticed some grandiose language in Cain’s recently released memoir, This is Herman Cain! My Journey To The White House.

Cain seems to have written a fictional (predictive?) account of how he is elected president in 2012. At the very beginning, he imagines:

“When all the votes were counted on Tuesday November 6, 2012, ‘We will be free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, this nation will be free at last—again!”

“Yes,” quips Colbert, “because we must not judge a man by the color of his skin, but by the way he pretends to have the content of someone else’s character.”
