The Cain Mutiny

Fresh off the Florida straw-poll victory, Herman "I do not like to read" Cain has confused a meaningless poll for a meaningful sign. Other than pitching his "impress a kindergardener, stun a tea bagger" 9-9-9 "plan", he has also accused The Blacks of being brainwashed into not being open-minded. He went on offense, to borrow an overused cliché.

He now gets to find out why he'll never get The Black Vote or the The Tea Bagger Vote. On the same day, he sort of apologized for staying silent when they booed a gay soldier at the Klan rally GOP Presidential debate, and did something worse: used a politically correct euphemism to denounce Rick Perry's "niggerhead" entrance to his hunting grounds.

He called it "insensitive".
Since Governor Perry has been going there for years to hunt, I think that it shows a lack of sensitivity for a long time of not taking that word off of that rock and renaming the place,'s just basically a case of insensitivity.
So in one stroke he denounced racist overtones of the front-runner and then felt uncomfortably sheepish about the gay soldier being booed.

Strangely, the Bible has the appropriate Hallmark card sentiment for this
What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground. Now you are under a curse and driven from the ground, which opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its crops for you. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth.
RIP, Herb Cain.

Update: At least one mainstreamer echoes my sentiment:
