Cain Jabs Palin Again Over 'flavor the week' Comment ~ Cain Needs To Get Off This Race Baiting

CNN Political Ticker

Rising GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain turned Sarah Palin’s words against her Wednesday, saying he's unconcerned about a potential White House bid by the former Alaska governor as she’d be the “flavor of the week.”

"The thing about Cain supporters is we build, and then we build, and we build," Cain said Wednesday at a book signing in Florida. "They don't defect. My supporters aren't going to run to the flavor of the week."

Palin previously knocked Cain's recent surge in the polls, casting him as the "flavor of the week" after he won a much-watched Florida straw poll nearly two weeks ago.

But this isn't the first time Cain, former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, showed his pique at Palin’s ice cream analogy.

In an appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," Cain joked Friday that his "flavor" was Haagan-Daas Black Walnut.

"Substance, that's the difference. I got the substance," Cain told Leno. "I'm the Black Walnut. It lasts longer than a week."

Wild Thing's comment.........

This makes the fourth time that I know of Herman Cain has made a point of bringing this up since Sarah said that about his being the flavor of the week. sheesh.

As you all know I have either party playing the race card. We have seen way too much of it from Obama and his side of the isle.

I have always respected Herman Cain and so I hate this even more coming from him. He needs to let this go including the thing he has toward Gov. Rick Pery about the rock. But so far Cain is using both of these things and not giving up.

Just like the video I posted of Allen West and how he reacted. I wish Cain had done the same thing and taken the high road. The evidence is there that the whole rock thing was taken care of and why Cain has decided to ignore the truth is very troubling.

For a minute there I thought if Sarah was a blonde she could be a sister of Wild Thing - sitting on the dock in Sarasota? Drop the puck Tampa Bay Lightning!

Damn Herman, get off it! Or change party. The race card and victimhood will not go over well with conservatives.

When one is getting kicked by the likes of Bill O’Reilly you get a little raw. Herman Cain is and is just badly over reacting. Now that Sarah has withdrawn from being a Candidate herself this time he needs to get with her and coordinate.

She is going to have to play party elder and Peace maker for the right side of the party otherwise the liberal media will have the candidates tearing the party to pieces if they can. Newt Gingrich is right that the media will award points on how destructive each candidate is to the Republican Party.

This is a problem for Rick Perry because he has only been over in the Republican Party two decades and the he left a Texas Democrat Party that no longer exists except in the minds of a few Texans who call themselves Democrats but would be kicked out of a party caucus anywhere in the north, east or west coasts.

Michelle Bachmann also walked into it and was destroyed for this run. Each of these don't want to damage the party but the media will try to turn them to that.
