Tom Brokaw is shocked and stunned at Herman Cain's web ad that features his Chief of Staff smoking a cigarette.
Brokaw did not appreciate the cigarette because of the damage smoking does to one's body. Brokaw even went so far as to say Cain should rename his 9-9-9 plan to include cancers and diseases one gets from smoking.
"I must say on the Cain thing, I was stunned by that ad that he did with his campaign manager, ending up smoking a cigarette. Which, in my judgment, is one of the great health hazards in America in terms of lethal diseases, and also the costs of it all. I think that maybe 9-9-9 stands for get nine months to live with lung cancer, nine months to live with emphysema, nine months to live with coronary artery disease. I can't imagine why they thought that was an effective image," Brokaw said on "Meet the Press."

Click on the cane, (#2 in rotation.)
Oh, for crying out loud.
How utterly sissy-boy *sensitive* can this flaming libtard get?
OBAMA HIS HERO, ACTUALLY SMOKES CIGS!!!!!!
First they ridiculed Cain, now they are fighting him.
He’s retired, isn’t he? So why should I care what he thinks? Not that I cared when he was a news reader.
Yeah Tom, I’m stunned you guys didn’t vet your candidate AT ALL.
First it was Ice cream... now Cigarettes...
What a fairy.
The news business used to be filled with real men that smoked like an active volcano.
And they actually did a better job!
Stuned his beeber!
How about electing a man who personally puts himself at such risk while having the big red button at his disposal?!
Boy, am I relieved that Tom Brokaw is looking out for my best interests. I, of course, am too stupid to do any thinking for myself.
And that is when he knows he has won.
Tom, Tom, Tom,
You ever get close enough to the Obamaloon to smell him, you dork?
Guess that -as an undereducated lib- you prefer the “look the other way” approach when it’s a fellow cretin, eh?
Another bump in the polls compliments of the mainstream media. Trivial irritation of the Lib media=favorability with Conservatives.
And how many homosexual males die from sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDs? Does Tommie Brokaw advocate closing all the gay bars and bath houses? I’m guessing he’s silent on this issue.
Also, has Brokaw been to a Hollywood movie in the 20 years or so? Virtually every major movie star puffs away on the silver screen.
he has no problem with POTUS sneaking around and smoking then?
Smokers may require more health care while they're alive, but they draw less in pensions and Social Security benefits because they die earlier. Net-net they pay for themselves. More, because of the huge taxes on cigarettes they now pay.
Yet his guy smoking is O.K. I really despise these Marxists.
