thanks for the link, great video.
Way late to this thread...as usual, but I first read through the entire thing and THEN I watched the vid. Here is the briefest translation you will ever see of this video, and it is glorious.
“I am Herman Cain’s chief of staff and running this campaign. If you guys help, we can do this OUR way without the establishment and they can put THAT in their pipe and smoke it!”
You seem overly sensitive to this ad, in my opinion. Whatever though, free country. Newt would be an excellent vP choice for Cain- his intellect and gravitas plus cain’s fresh spirit and happy conservative warrior.
Do I have a death wish? Hmmm, that seems a big overblown.
OK, I took your advise and spoke to a shrink, a preacher and a lawyer...to a man they all sided with me.
They all think you're an obvious vote for Obama and probably gay.
Or maybe Axelrod will smoke a Twinkie and...
Cain is on pace to bag between $4 million and $5 million in October alone. His fundraising is taking care of itself.
I think this was Herb’s first ad.
He’d better not eat too many of those Twinkies. It might make him go out and kill Barney Frank. On the other hand, let’s buy him a case of Twinkies.
I wouldn't be surprised if it were made into a reality show in the near future. Certainly better than Leno or Letterman.
1) The antithesis of political correctness
2) People have been talking about it for 2 days straight trying to figure it out what it means (herman cain controls the spot light
3) In the trenches supporters love that shit
4) It appeals to blue collar types (as opposed to the country club RINOs ) many of those blue collar types used to have a manufacturing job that is now overseas
5) Liberals dont know what to think it is so unconventional
This was very deliberate. We will see more of that from Cain who if nothing else, will have a marketing edge.
“Nonsense! Few people are ever going to see this thing.”
(I’m late on this thread) - Looking at this from the perspective of a couple of days, I think it was a good strategy to run such an ad because it’s been talked about on virtually all networks numerous times and by now TENS OF MILLIONS of people have seen it, heard about it or both. Even CSPAN’s Washington Journal this morning made it the subject of their 40 minute call-in show!
As Rush said today, the Left has no problem with pot smoking, explicit sex (in both the media and choolchildren’s classrooms), but they’re all abuzz about a Republican ad showing a guy smoking a legal (albeit politically incorrect) tobacco cigarette.
Not only is there nothing wrong with the ad, but it’s gotten Herman Cain priceless name recognition and repeated media mention.
“I want someone to convince me that I should vote for them and to do so for a reason I can accept. Thus far......it’s NOT happening.”
Whether you vote in the primary or not, the #1 reason to vote for our nominee in the general is to defeat the most dangerous, traitorous, radical, America-hating, Marxist, Islamist WH occupier to threaten the Republic and her citizenry in our lifetime - perhaps ever.
Is that reason enough for you?
As far as Cain “wasting what little money he has left” - I wouldn’t call buying commercial time on the #1 national radio show (Rush Limbaugh) in all 50 states a waste of dollars.
