NOTE: I wrote this back on June 13. I was evidently ahead of my time. Cain has now gained the national spotlight, as I always thought he would. Please enjoy this post, and marvel at my propehtic prowess.
It has been well over a month since I have written a blog post. I apologize to those of you that were getting used to my near daily output. I will seek to write something once a week, as it is good for me, and evidently some of you like to read my ramblings. Thanks. I appreciate that.
Today’s topic is clairvoyance. Specifically, who will win tonight’s Republican Debate in New Hampshire. I have never dipped a toe into these waters, but the outcome is so clear to me, I have to declare it before it happens. The winner of tonight’s Republican debate will be: Herman Cain.
Who is Herman Cain, you ask? He is a businessman who has sterling conservative credentials. He grew up in a home where the mother was a domestic worker, and his father worked three jobs to put his boys through college. He is a no-nonsense business type, who adds a bold slash of Republican Red to an otherwise Pink Elephant parade. He is forceful, clear, and has a wealth of executive experience. Best of all, he has never held a public office. He is a breath of fresh air, and will blow the other timid, mousy, bland Republicans away.
Oh, and he’s black.
He is exactly what Republicans are craving. A real conservative black candidate that can assuage them of all the baseless charges of racism the Obama supporters have hurled at them. A chance to prove their open-mindedness.
My prediction: Herman Cain wins the debate tonight handily. This is not an endorsement of Cain, just a prediction of where I think the debate will go.
I will be on tomorrow to humbly acknowledge my accuracy, or to eat crow. Watch this space.
