Time Magazine Asks: 'Is Herman Cain the Most Unctuous Black Man Alive?'
News Busters ^ | 10 20 2011 | Tim Graham

Posted on 10/21/2011 5:35:58 AM PDT by tutstar

The author who calls himself simply Toure -- a regular guest on MSNBC, and before that on CNN -- is throwing rhetorical bricks at Herman Cain for Time magazine. His article is headlined "Is Herman Cain the Most Unctuous Black Man Alive? Why the Hermanator experience is making me sick."

Toure compared Cain to a circus clown, called him a "buffoon," compared him to "rancid, spoiled, stinky, curdled milk" and dissed him (in the liberal mind) by calling him "the Black Sarah Palin." In the midst of that, he somehow scolds Cain for "sinking to teenage-level disses." He began:

This presidential election has not lacked for clowns, and in a circus Herman Cain fits right in. But as the Black clown, Cain's foot-in-mouth moments mostly involve insulting the Black community. This could be to establish his independence from the community in order to earn his bona fides with the GOP electorate or a way of appeasing the white conservatives he's courting. Or it could be that his foot and his mouth are magnetized. Whatever the reason, as a Black person, the Hermanator experience has been as distasteful as rancid, spoiled, stinky, curdled milk.

“...excessively smooth, suave, or smug...”

That describes Obama to a tee.

Bachman rises in the polls, the libtard media attack her.
Perry rises in the polls, the libtard media attack him.
Cain rises in the polls, the libtard media attack him.

The only GOP the libtard media have NOT attacked is "Mitt" Romney. In fact they tell us they would be so scared if we ran Romney against Obama.

Hmmmmmmmmmm....

Oh, and they say we shouldn't throw them in dat ol' briar patch too

Mr. Toure sounds like a typical hypocritical liberal as he resorts to “teenage level disses” WHILE he is criticising a conservative for “sinking to teenage-level disses.”

the Black Sarah Palin

They're not quite there yet, but the MSM has plenty of time left to accomplish the objective. With Sarah they only had the time between the convention and the election.

If any candidates are unctuous, it would be Romney and Huntsman.

The media picked McCain and they want Romney! I have seriously been thinking of writing in Herman Cain if Romney gets the nomination.

RE :”...by calling him “the Black Sarah Palin.

That is a funny thought.

I pointed out a few days ago that Cain is playing the role that the Palinistas swore Palin would play now, bucking the establishment, the RINOs, and the MSM and rallying conservatives to someone we actually like to see. He is out there dropping conservative fire-bombs everyday saying things that drive them nuts. And unlike Palin who never even intended to run, Cain is an actual candidate.

Another difference with Palin, Cain occasionally mispeaks when being asked trap got-ya questions then corrects the record, but unlike Palin he actually does give real interviews, and tough ones that I dont see Perry or Romney doing.

Cain better get prepared for the next debate on foreign policy or that could be his Waterloo.

Just happened to see this guy on Morning Joe (with Sharpton)...he is black, though very light-skinned, and author of a book on Post-Blackness, interviews with 105 blacks on what makes success (I think). I couldn’t get a good read on his overall take, but I was surprised good ol’ Joe didn’t ask any questions about the success of Herman Cain.
