Herman Cain Comes Out With "The Worst Ad of The 2012 Cycle So Far"

Categories: Politics

There's a reason managers generally stay in the background.

That's what they do!

But in the case of Republican hopeful Herman Cain, his guy, Mark Block, ill-advisedly agreed to be on camera, and the result has aptly been dubbed the absolute worst ad of the season by The Washington Post.

The extremely untelegenic Block seems to not even know his first line, as he pauses weirdly while saying "Since ... January."

His head makes a very bizarre swivel at one point, making you wonder if the camera's caught him spazzing.

It also shakes back and forth at odd moments, maybe to distract you from the inanity of what's being said.

Then there's the problem of the deadening monotone and overall air of discomfort.

And worst of all, the smoking! Does anyone in 2012 still think lung cancer is sexy?

Sorry, Herman. Go back to your 9-9-9 routine.

It's this indignation that's worst of all. Do you know how foolish all of you who don't get it look?  When the freedom to be left alone and not harassed day in and day out about a legal behavior isn't sexy anymore -- which is what the message is -- we're all in deep poop.  We're half way there with all these incorrectly formed observations.

Gee, Audry.  You're so bright, how can anyone else come up with anything?  When somebody is hacking their guts out from cancer, I think they should, you know, be left alone.  To die.  Why should the government get involved?  Though I don't know what they have against pot.  They seem fond of letting people drink themselves to death.

Well, it's such an iffy proposition.  According to the Sloan Ketting screen, the possibility that I, a smoker with many years of (up to) one pack per day inhalation of tobacco, etc., have a 7% of developing lung cancer.  A recent stress test says I have 95% lung capacity.  It's in your genes folks.  And now they want to put photos of tumors and black lungs on the packs, like in Canada, as if... Question?  When will they start putting photos of decapitated people being shot through car windshields at 75 mph on the labels of Vodka bottles?  Or how about showing that crushed 7 year old kid sitting in the backseat who died from "second-hand drinking."  Pick your poison my pretties.

That smile says "yes I'm taking all the Koch brothers money I can." This is the America they want to appeal to. Cigarette smoking displaced white men who are patriotically defending their right to listen to Rush Limbo and the tea bag wearing women who work at Walmart to support them. Too bad for them because Herman Cain's government isn't going to pay for medical treatment of the cancer caused by those cigarettes. After all Mr. and Mrs. White America, it's your own fault you aren't millionaires.

And the Cain smile, so creepy!  I would scoff but a really dumb ass Republican did win one time (he stole the first one).

Best part's when it's over and there's Cain himself glancing sideways at the camera, allowing a smirk to slowly spread all over his mug. It's like he knew Mark Block was making an ass of himself and he was in on the joke. "Mark Block? He's an Abel, guy, I mean an able guy."

Well, it's probably better than if Cain himself was on camera.

You mean "self destructs" in your mind? Herman Cain is leading in Iowa and many of the Southern states. Wake up and don't believe the anti-Cain hype!
