Herman Cain's Presidential Campaign is Bookended by the Theme to the Pokemon Movie

HermanCainSuspend.jpg
Earlier this afternoon, Herman Cain delivered what was promised to be an important announcement about his presidential campaign. Short version: He quit. Long version: The glorious, unwavering, never-ceasing Plan B! (Not that Plan B). While Plan A involved becoming president, Plan B looks to be much more ambitious. It consists of two main parts: Endorsing someone else for president and launching a website that links to an old website. Oh, and there was a Pokemon reference in there too. Yep, it was that kind of speech.

"As false accusations continue, they have sidetracked and my ability to present solutions to the American people," Cain said, reffering to multiple allegations of sexual harassment and the confession from an alleged former mistress regarding a thirteen-year affair. "I am not going to be silenced, and I am not going away," he said from the podium in Atlanta, before promoting TheCainSolution.com.

TheCainSolution.com links to a part of Cain's presidential donation website, SupportHermainCain.com. Cain can still receive donations, as campaign finance laws permit candidates who have dropped out to accept money as long as it goes toward repaying campaign debts. Plus, he didn't officially say he's out, only that he's "suspending" his run for the White House. (This temporary suspension also appears to feature his endorsement of a rival candidate "soon.")

He ended the speech with a quote from "The Power of One," Donna Summer's theme to Pokemon: The Movie 2000. He originally used the quote at his speech announcing his run for presidency, falsely attributing the words to the closing song of the 2000 Sydney Olympics. This time, however, he correctly referenced Pokemon.

A presidential campaign bookended by the theme from the Pokemon movie. We're going to miss you, Herman.

We also noticed that Cain's "I'm quitting" outfit is almost the exact same as his "I'm running for president" outfit. Take a look at today's speech:

And his announcement over the summer:

Oh, how we long for summer.

It’s: “Tamagotchi meets Pokemon” but with real fusion between the two and for smart-phones. People were crazy about Tamagotchis. It gave the user a sense of pride. You created and developed something and then measured your success by seeing how it fared against the elements. It gave the user a unique feeling of power.

The NY Republican "FAT CATS" are is "Shock" they put their "Money" and also there "big mouths" on Romney and Perry, well guess what Perry is dead in the water, and Romney is right behind.

The talking heads and Washington Insiders are in a stake of panic .

The "OLD MAN" of Staten Island Guy Molinari is waking up this morning and had a "Stroke" when he read that Ron Paul is beating Romney in Iowa.

"Big Brother" Obama is carpet bombing Romney

Lets not forget Dean Skelos who could not keep his power dry and listen to the "fools" who said Romney, he should have just listen to The COUNT. who said Newt is the ONE

Again I say NY Republicans Newt is the ONE
