No, Herman Cain Won't Get Us the "Black" Vote

At best, I consider myself to be a political philosopher. I am not a pundit. I don't understand the intricacies of running a primary campaign, and sadly it seems I don't even understand what the American people are looking for in a Republican candidate right now.

But, I know stupid when I hear it.

And no, Herman Cain will not take away some of the "black vote" from Barack.

Sure, if chosen as the Republican nominee, Hermain Cain would assuredly garner some black support. Specifically, the exact same individuals who voted for John McCain in 2008.

We can't out-black Obama with Cain. We can't out-minority Obama with a woman like Bachmann. We can't out-speak Obama with Romney's subpar eloquence.

Our only chance is to outthink him.

And the only individual with the game-changing ideas to do so is the one who's been spouting them consistently for the last 20 years.
