Presidential Hopefuls for $800. (Jeopardy TV show in the year 2042). This Republican candidate had notoriety for his catch phrase of “9-9-9.” The hypothetical game show reference may constitute the entirety of Herman Cain's “legacy.” Last week Cain “suspended” his quest for Republican presidential nomination and along with that came a suspension of a stream of amusing quips from the man who says “America needs to get a sense of humor.”
In a way, Herman Cain is a caricature of the composite American political candidate. The candidate has a good of sense of humor, and can tell a joke. They espouse the concept of rugged individualism while not forgetting the importance and appreciation of community and country. Their faith is out in the open and in time, so is a sex scandal or two.
