    all it’s missing is some Comic Sans!

      Isn’t that Comic Sans at the 0:44 mark?

      Just think, somebody got paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to ‘create’ that ad.

    I thought public transportation was SOCIALISM in this country?

    i like the little baka-wah guitar at the end

    It wasn’t weird enough, Cain might think his own people made this and start using it.

  6. alephxero says:

    Yeah, you can tell it’s not official because there’s no way that Herman Cain would want himself associated with Amtrak. Otherwise it’s a dead ringer, if slightly too tasteful to be plausible.

    Mr. Cain’s commercials certainly know how to bring the pain.

    The jokes on them – any publicity for someone most of us had never heard of 1 month ago is good publicity.

      Tell that to Casey Anthony.

    Question about religion and names, and the Christian right.

    His last name… it’s the same as the first murderer.

    So… if he was a democrat the religious right would have pointed out that he is the antichrist a month ago. As he is not a progressive, I feel that it is my duty to point out that he in in fact descended from the line of Cain.

    But seriously, how does a family get such a name. And why to they keep it?

    Starts out with an edge of hysteria, then gradually nudges the knob up to hypnotic psychotic.

    Plus, funny as hell.

    Herman Cain and his supporters should really catch the bus instead.

  14. Deidzoeb says:

    Is it possible that a lot of supporters are hearing his name and think they’re supporting McCain again? Then they get sight of Herman Cain and realize it’s not quite the same man.

  15. Emo Pinata says:

    Pretty sure his meme-able campaign is only going to help in in that classic “people don’t give a shit about the issues” way.

     The “CAIN TRAIN!!! ALL ABOAD!!! [sic]” at the end cracks me up.

  17. Guest says:

    He’s just like John McCain, but less Scottish.

    and if it ain’t Scottish…..

  18. skabob says:

    Some folks believe that the story of Cain and Abel was the conflict between Agriculture and Hunter Gatherers… and that Cain represents progress and Abel represents a failed past.  The murder is just progress, baby.  Appropriate name for a captain of industry.

    Personally, I say vote “Seth”!
