The Herman Cain Campaign (Pokeman? SimCity? 999?) - It's Performance Art!

Cain quoted "a poet" as having once said, "Life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible, but it's never easy when there's so much on the line". These are lyrics from "The Power of One," a song written for Pokemon: The Movie 2000. Song is from pokemon movie 2000 by Donna Summers.

This could be dismissed as a charming flub, if only it was the first time Cain had used Pokemon lyrics in a political speech. Cain quotes the line on what appears to be his official website (attributing it to the 2000 Olympics closing song, which it's not), at his official campaign announcement in May, and at the Republican Leadership Conference in June.


Wild Thing's comment......

LOL I give Cain a plus for trying and actually pulling this pokeman thing off. No harm of course but in terms of Presidential and taking the credit for it when it is NOT his. haha yikes That is a different story.

I am NO fan of Maddow, but she is right about Cain on this. It is embarassing.
