Someone call 9-9-9. Stat.

OK, the guy aspiring to be the first second black President is trying to win the nomination of the party that is trying to get the first one out of the White House because, well, he is black. Does not go with the decor, apparently.

Herman "I do not like to read" Cain has won the Florida straw poll.


Wait, is that something like Minnesota Palin winning the Iowa straw poll?

Not exactly, this one's less meaningful. Look, even when the messiah beat old man McCain and his three-ring circus with Alaska Palin and Joe the not Plumber, he did so in the face a devastated economy, and barely managed an eight point margin. Well OK, that is significant, but that was a nation-wide election, which means non-tea-baggers voted as well. And yet, the margin was a skimpy eight points.

So, you really think that a 37-14 edge for a black man in a tea-bagger-only poll is even meaningful? How about if I tell you that the Mormon Huntsman Romney did not even run and fared as well as Perry?

Thought so.

Cain disagrees:
This is a sign of our growing momentum and my candidacy that cannot be ignored
Just you watch, Herman.
