This just-released Cain ad must be seen to be believed.

I didn't think I could support Herman Cain anymore than I already did.

The 15-second smile at the end is what does it for me.

I enjoyed the shot of his campaign manager smoking a cigarette for some reason.

The Herman Cain ad is great. Is he running for CEO of a tobacco company ? Wink

And this in a country that increasingly hates smoking.

Nonetheless, it has a sense of coolness together with the background music and Cain's smile.

Cain's ads are decent, but not as great as Gravel's.  Rather than 10 seconds being spent on Cain smiling at the end, it should have been at least 2 minutes.

This just-released Cain ad must be seen to be believed.

Some background info:

Quote
But the role that helped propel Mr. Cain into politics was that of an ultimate Washington insider: industry lobbyist.

From 1996, when he left the pizza company, until 1999, Mr. Cain ran the National Restaurant Association, a once-sleepy trade group that he transformed into a lobbying powerhouse.

He allied himself closely with cigarette makers fighting restaurant smoking bans, spoke out against lowering blood-alcohol limits as a way to prevent drunken driving, fought an increase in the minimum wage and opposed a patientsí bill of rights ó all in keeping with the interests of the industry he represented.

They were targeting the "veterans-who-smoke-in-bars" vote, says the smoker in the ad:

"Americans for Herman Cain, a project of the 9-9-9 Fund"

I'm pretty sure that the 9-9-9 Fund is Cain's SuperPAC.

That smoking ad is HILARIOUS. It's obvious he's not really running for president and realizes the whole thing is a joke. I mean, come on...just listen to that song and watch Cain's goofy smile. I love it.

Cain's campaign is the Rocky IV of political campaigns, so it is fitting. However, I suspect Vince DiCola and Survivor do not approve of Cain (or his PAC or whatever) using their music:

I disagree. There's no question that Herman Cain, the politician, is a joke, but his candidacy (at least in Herman's head) is very serious. Watch his interviews. Listen to his speeches. The guy takes his positions on economic issues very seriously. He becomes visibly agitated when interviewers challenge his opinions. The other day he lashed out against Karl Rove for "deliberately" trying to "smear him."

He knows nothing about politics and thus lacks the common sense to run a serious campaign, but I think it's due more to naivety and ignorance than anything else.

Looking at the Cain ads combined with some of the things he says and his lack of a campaign staff...I am starting to think that America is being punked. We are all part of some strange reality show, possibly run by aliens

I think it was Dave Weigel who said that when Cain wins Iowa, and he's giving his victory speech, he'll just say, "The Aristocrats!" and walk off of the stage.

How can 1.2 million aborted fetuses think otherwise, Rick? Dead fetuses can't think.

Anyway, this attack only shows the desperation of the pathetic Santorum campaign. Rick needs to get with the program and hop aboard the Cain train, before it pulls out of the station without him.
