The Power of Pokemon

In honor of Herman Cain winning the Florida straw poll, here he is quoting what intrepid Google searchers have determined is Donna Summer's theme song from the Pokemon movie from the year 2000:

No wonder voters find Cain inspirational. He knows how to re-awaken powerful feelings from our childhood memories!

(Anyone who is interested in a substantive analysis of Herman Cain's highly-touted 9-9-9 tax reform proposal might try going here.  The question that should be asked about any candidate's tax plan is who would end up paying more, and who would be paying less under the plan, as compared to the current tax system. Strangely, that question is not always asked or answered.)


  1. Wow a real anti-Hope and Change article there Joe.

  2. What are you talking about? Donna Summer is my favorite singer from the disco era!

  3. James Rossie said "where these people would take our country if elected".

    James sounds like a racist homophobe :-)

  4. It is SO easy to make fun of politicians. Take Obama's Fruedian slip Saturday night in front of the black caucus. Ha ha ... too easy. But just because I can doesn't mean I should or will.

  5. More analysis of Cain:

    "Despite his successes, Cain does not forget his humble beginnings. His parents, Luther Cain, Jr. and Lenora Davis Cain provided examples of hard work that he would remember the rest of his life. His father at one time worked three jobs: cutting hair in his off hours, working part-time at Coca-Cola as a chauffeur, and working an evening shift as a janitor in a bakery. His mother worked as a domestic. This work ethic would inspire Cain."

    "Cain told Wallace Terry in Parade Magazine, "My father never looked for a government program, a government handout. I never heard my father complain about somebody owing him anything. All I ever saw was how hard my father worked to get what he wanted out of life. My mother was my spiritual light--Mom talked to me about God. She taught me that success is not a function of what you start with materially but what you start with spiritually. Those were my beginnings. They have been with me ever since." Cain carried these values through Morehouse College in Atlanta, into his work as a mathematician for the Navy, and later to Purdue University, where he earned a master's degree in computer science."

  6. I took the video as being rather sarcastic.
