Will GOP Raise "Cain" For Presidency?

To Call Cain's Candidacy A Long Shot May Be Gracious

Political newbie Herman Cain announced his candidacy to be the Republican Party's nominee for president of the United States. Despite his complete lack of elective experience, Cain believes he has what it takes to beat more mainstream GOP stalwarts to go toe to toe with President Obama.
Cain is the third leg in a political menage a trios---the GOP conditionally loves the Tea Party, which loves Cain's conservative rhetoric. He is not so much loved by Democratic and independent women, who find his position on abortion and Planned Parenthood to be nothing short of vile vitriol.

Cain has a way with words that seem to excite his base, which seem to think that his business credentials will make up for his lack of real-time political acumen. He certainly will have a hard time putting together the funds to off Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Tim Palenty, Mitch Daniels, Jon Huntsman, or,  for that matter, some of the junior league candidates such as Michelle Bachmann, Jon Bolton, or the quitter from Wasilla, Sarah Palin.

It won't be too long before reality sets in....the real question for Cain is whether political reality will set in or how long will it take for Cain to be relegated to nothing more a footnote in the annals of American political theater trivia?
