Cain: I May Run for President Again

I‘m getting that giddy feeling again. Herman Cain told the Republican Leadership Council that he might run for president again in 2016, providing, of course, that God calls him to do so as he did in 2012 when he told Cain to run so he could get his ass kicked in the primaries and make himself a laughingstock.

Herman Cain, who ended his 2012 presidential campaign amid allegations of multiple affairs, said Saturday that he might run for president again in 2016.

Cain, in a speech at the Republican Leadership Conference here, brought up the prospect of another run toward the end of his speech. He then suggested he would do it if he were called by God.

“I do not know what the future holds, but I know who holds the future,” the Georgia businessman said. “And I trust in God.”

Dear friends, let us pray:

Heavenly father, I know I don’t call much because, frankly, I don’t believe you exist. But this is too important to leave to chance. If you could see your way to telling Herman Cain to run for president again in 2016, as you did in 2012 when he ran and dropped out before a single vote was cast in the primaries, I’d really appreciate it. And if you could make sure that Brad Marston is one of his advisers again and is willing to make another $2500 bet with me that he’ll win the primaries, I’d be doubly grateful. Amen.

    No, no, he will do much better this time: Hes going to start the creepy video campaign ads much sooner.

    Last time god only told 3 candidates to run for president. All of whom lost.

    Hopefully, this time he will be paying more attention and get the volume up. They all might as well claim to be following god’s orders.

    Hey Ed did he pay up?

    I missed “Cain” at the beginning of the headline. My thought: “Ed ran for president once?”

    Extra butter on my popcorn, please.

    @2 — it’s true. God told each of them to run.

    He didn’t tell them who would win…only that they should run.

    He told Pat Robertson who was going to win — but apparently the message got lost in translation. Either that or President Romney has been keeping a remarkably low profile since his inauguration.

    He then suggested he would do it if he were called by God.

    He should ask for it in writing this time.

    There’s a “Republican Leadership Council?” I pray to Odin and Athena that it does as much damage to the Republican Party as the “Democratic Leadership Council” did to the Democrats.

    During the 2012 election, I wanted him to be the candidate, because the racists heads would explode. I think I want him as the 2016 candidate, too, especially if the Democratic Candidate is Hillary Clinton.

    Kevin Kehres @ 6:

    @2 — it’s true. God told each of them to run.

    The old boy has a wicked sense of humor. I hope he includes Alan West this time around too!

  • eric

    Sorry Ed, I think your wish has a near-zero chance of coming true. I think it’s far more likely that Cain is just doing a Palin:

    Step 1: claim you’re going to run.

    Step 2: collect contributions, but don’t submit the paperwork to officially run.

    Step 3: profit.

    @EdBrayton gets his first celebrity endorsement from Herman Cain. #EdBrayton2016

    (From my first reading of the headline.)

  • sugarfrosted

    Shoot, didn’t see that my first comment went through. Sorry for repeating jokes.

  • Kevin Kehres

    @10…heck, I hope he tells Adam West to run.

  • caseloweraz

    Herman come on, You should make a run again.

    ‘Cos there’s something, something of the fool about you.

    Herman come on, take the campaign ’round the bend

    With endorsements by all the nuts who’ll tout you.

    (Apologies to Hall & Oates)
