Herman Cain's latest ad.

Any questions?

Responses to Herman Cain's "Libya" embarrassment

After Herman Cain drew an utter blank when an interviewer asked him how he felt about Obama's handling of Libya, and proceeded to unconvincingly fake a response, Andrew Sullivan rounds up the responses of bloggers around the net, from Cain's supporters and detractors alike.

Drezner invokes the mercy rule:

There's a mercy rule in Little League, and I'm applying it here -- unless and until Herman Cain surges back in the polls again, or manages to muster something approaching cogency in his foreign policy statements, there's no point in blogging about him anymore. I can only pick on an ignoramus so many times before it feels sadistic.

Pamela Geller, who previously endorsed Cain, calls it an "unrecoverable moment":

This is just unacceptable, Herman. ... He is not ready.

Of course, this is just the latest in a string of Cain blunders.

Cain Train, Baby: another Tim Heidecker mock campaign jingle featuring Rich Little (audio)

I don't know how Tim Heidecker's gonna top this latest song: "CAIN TRAIN, BABY." Audio's here. Featuring famed voice actor Rich Little.

Heidecker, in case you don't know, is half of "Tim and Eric," and has been cranking out these weird surrealist Herman Cain anti-jingles for a couple weeks now.

Anyway, that's Heidecker, in the sexy photo at left. Follow him on Twitter. And at top, Kevin Ackley made this fan-art homage to the Cain song cycle. An album cover, perchance?

Related: Aaron Preacher whipped up this appropriately surreal fan-video for "Lord Cain," the jingle Heidecker released on Friday night.

Oh, and Herman Cain's sure having a busy day today!

Because Herman Cain's actual campaign ads just aren't weird enough:

"Lord Cain," an opus by Tim Heidecker (of Tim and Eric fame), as promised.

Download: MP3, Ogg, and other options here. You should follow Tim's Tumblr.

UPDATE: Dylan Mitchell-Funk created a fan-video. Eric Wareheim sure is looking good these days!

Yet another weird Herman Cain campaign ad: "He Carried Yellow Flowers"

[Video Link, via Tim Heidecker] This one's classic, meaning it came out back in August when no-one was paying attention.

Herman Cain sings Lennon classic "Imagine There's No Pizza"

In this performance from 1991, presidential candidate Herman Cain sings (splendidly) a version of Imagine in which the lyrics have been changed to be about pizza. [via Gawker]
