Yahoo News ^ | 09/26/2011 | Chris Moody

On the heels of presidential candidate Herman Cain's win in the Florida straw poll last weekend, the radio host Dennis Miller announced Monday that he's endorsing Cain for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.

Miller, who mentioned his support for the Cain campaign on his national radio show, will headline a fundraiser for Cain in Los Angeles and has donated to the campaign, a Cain spokeswoman confirmed.

"I'd like to thank [Miller] for his support," Cain said in a statement on his campaign Twitter feed. "I look forward to working with him as we continue our journey to the White House!"

You beat me by 20 seconds!! I truly hope the mods delete mine. Double posts are sort of annoying. Almost as bad as vanity posts.

Miller has been supportive of Cain for months--his website directed readers to the Georgia businessman's campaign site in July--but had not formally endorsed him until today.

OK if Cain wins can we have Miller as press secretary. You have to admit selling the press briefings/rants on pay-per-view would help with the budget problems.

I don’t know if Miller is exactly a kingmaker, but his support of Cain won’t hurt.

That’s ironic, telling Dennise to buy a razor with a fiver that has a man with a similar beard.

I don't know why Dennis Miller can't have a beard . . . our President has one.

(I almost said "an unattractive beard" . . . but the house is too messy right now to host the Secret Service.)

Michelle Bachmann and Sarah Palin are both pro-gun.

Cain flunks the gun rights test.

Although Cain says he supports the Second Amendment, in the next breath he says he fully supports any and all state gun control/prohibitions.

That is like supporting federal rights for women and blacks, but allowing women and blacks to be slaves if the state laws permit them to be slaves.

I will not support any candidate who allows, and favors, individual states to outlaw guns, or to take away womens voting rights, or to allow slavery, or to prohibit free speech, etc. .

In contrast stand the facts of what he actually said, in context:

BLITZER: All right. Let’s talk about gun control. Do you support any gun control?

CAIN: I support the Second Amendment.

BLITZER: So you don’t — so what’s the answer on gun control?

CAIN: The answer on gun control is I support strong — strongly support the Second Amendment. I don’t support, you know, onerous legislation that’s going to restrict people’s rights in order to be able to protect themselves as guaranteed by the Second Amendment.

BLITZER: Should states or local governments be allowed to control the gun situation? Or should...

CAIN: Yes.

BLITZER: The answer is yes?

CAIN: The answer is yes. That should be a state’s decision.

Well, Perry should push Cain right on guns just like Cain is pushing Pery right on illegals. I just hope that the Cain people don’t whine like the Perry people as their candidate gets vetted and nudged to the right.
