Last week there was a tragedy in the political community the great Herman Cain “suspended” his campaign for the Republican Party’s nomination for the presidential election. There are many people who are happy that Herman Cain has left the election. I have even criticized one Herman Cain in my post “Herman Cain and Uncle Ruckus…Same Person?” but the more and more the debate and election went on I started to have an affinity for one Herman Cain. When Herman Cain left the election you would think I would be happy and joyous to have him sit down somewhere (I still believe that the slogan “Let Herm Cook” was beyond hilarious). But, I caution you to have those feelings toward Herman Cain. Because after really thinking about it Herman Cain leaving this election is not totally a good thing. We should miss Herman Cain in this election. Here are three reasons you should be disappointed that Herman Cain left the republican presidential race.
Like or dislike Barack Obama the Republican Party’s candidates outside of Mitt Romney have NO chance to even give Barack Obama any competition in 2012. The Republican race had some spice to it with Herman Cain. Michelle Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, and Rick Santorum don’t bring that swagger that the great Herman Cain brought to these debates. As much as I love Ron Paul he doesn’t do much in the debates but look like he needs to grow into his suits. Herman Cain with that “slick country talk” got people’s juices flowing. He was garnering so much attention during the debates that candidates like Michelle Bachmann are still channeling him. Let’s be for real, you can’t tell me hearing him refer everything to his 9-9-9 campaign was something of comedic genius.
Moderator: What do you think about the situation in Libya?
Herman Cain: What street is that on?
Moderator: Mr. Cain I’m talking about African country
Cain: Oh yeah I knew that! Well, if you look deeply into my 9-9-9 plan you will see. That if we just send 9.99 a month we can feed a poor African child.
The Ho Train
Herman Cain had more women than the Hammer video Pumps and a Bump. He had women coming out from everywhere. Herman Cain was a man with a pocket full of dough and a group of average women to spend it on. It was better than an episode of “Young and The Restless” seeing the women keep coming out making claims that he had affairs or “sexually assaulted” them. If anyone remembers the Godfather from wrestling fame he used to have this thing called a “Ho Train” where a series of women would come out with him before his match. That’s how the Herman Cain sexual saga looked every week. It was like the Price is Right but with average looking chicks being called down. People think Herman Cain was ousted from the election because of the “ho train” but it wasn’t the ho train was just the icing on the cake. One Herman Cain and Tiger Woods both learned that cheating with average looking women isn’t as safe as men thought in the past.
The Reaffirmation that Uncle Toms DO still Exist
The way Herman Cain consistently tried to feed into the Republican moniker over his campaign was comical. The problem was he was very bad at even being a Republican Candidate. I wrote about this before in my post on Juan Williams and Uncle Tomism but there is nothing wrong with being black. One can criticize the community but one has to be a part of the upliftment as well. Let’s keep it real for a 2nd I am not saying Herman Cain is all the way an Uncle Tom but I will say this he surely has Uncle Tom tendencies. It seems that we take the word Uncle Tom super abrasive when actuality there ARE Uncle Toms in this world who are ashamed of being black and want to push themselves away from anything that associates them to black. Herman Cain being in the race reminds us that there are people who under the guise of retorting that African-Americans need to do better but are not giving solutions or working to help. Herman Cain was really about serving an agenda of attaching himself to the mainstream world to sell a few books and get a little popular. Herman Cain through his antics and quotes about black people remind the world that bigotry and hatred doesn’t necessarily have an identifiable face.
I joke and chide about Herman Cain a lot because he is just that a funny caricature of what the Republican Party identifies as a “good black man”. Look at all the support he got until they found out he didn’t know a damn thing about Foreign Policy and the 9-9-9 plan really did sound like a dropped Godfather’s pizza campaign. At the end of the day black people are not monolithic and that’s what makes black people misunderstood the most. As much as I think Herman Cain is teetering Uncle Tomism he does present that every black person doesn’t have the same ideology. At the end of the day I am going to miss one Herman Cain and maybe you should a little more too!
