Inevitable: The Herman Cain “bad lip-reading” video

posted at 10:03 pm on October 28, 2011 by Allahpundit

The funniest BLR clip since the classic Perry video, and mainly for the same reason: Thanks to their shared “communication problems,” the gibberish has a faint whiff of plausibility that it wouldn’t have otherwise. I mean, is this really happening now? C’mon.

Coming soon: The Herman Cain town hall series. What could go wrong?

Yes, all you can do is give that woodchuck a tuna melt. Preach it.

Maximus holds the patent on rice cream, and you got to go make it. It’s goooood.

Women have a special feeling, though. They got extra fatal lady shimmer of no maximum strength. You could be sick, pooping out blood, and you’d still want them.

No truer words spoken.

John the Libertarian on October 28, 2011 at 10:12 PM

Funny! But too long, 2 mins is enough.

That was funny… I can see Herman on his bus laughing his arse off…

Mark Block and Linda Hansen, Herman Cain’s senior advisers, tell National Review Online that Cain will soon hold a series of “major town-hall meetings” in early primary states.

That’s great news. He’ll draw huge crowds and can build support in these key early states.

Mighty clever but a little long.

Who can resist that Cain smile?

The Mitt lip-synch is a good one, too, especially his sleazy laugh interspersed.

All you do is give that woodchuck a tuna melt, a romantic shoe or a metal skull crusher. It’s crazy..

This video needs to be played to the OWS folks.
They would dig it and cheer.

Electrongod on October 28, 2011 at 10:23 PM

Hilarious and you gotta give him credit for putting himself out there in the town halls. The contrast to Perry possibly backing off the debates is pretty strong. It could backfire but it could be a fantastic boost.

ldbgcoleman on October 28, 2011 at 10:24 PM

Strange and funny but a bit long. Can’t say it would harm his campaign though. Anybody of a mind to hold this sort of thing against him won’t vote Republican anyways, and a funny vid like this can introduce him to people that aren’t aware of his existence. Maybe Huntsman ought to look into this.

Re: Town halls

At each one of Cains 4 events today in Alabama, he drew more people than Romney did in all of his events on his last trip through, combined.

Tomorrow’s events should be even bigger since peeps are off from work.

Mark Block and Linda Hansen, Herman Cain’s senior advisers, tell National Review Online that Cain will soon hold a series of “major town-hall meetings” in early primary states.

They predict that packing school auditoriums and conference halls with supporters will enable Cain to leap ahead of his competitors, generating buzz and enthusing grassroots activists.

Unconventional……….where have I heard that before?

“Russian Unicorn” is the best one. That’s actually a far better song than the original Michael Buble number they’re spoofing.

ldbgcoleman on October 28, 2011 at 10:24 PM

What contrast to Perry?

Perry excels in retail politicking, both one-on-one and town halls. He is a good speaker although this might be hard to believe for those who have only watched him on the TV debates.

He is cutting down on the unprecedented number of scheduled debates, which I believe Romney had a hand in, to focus on more retail politics.

How is that cutting and running?

Were you there? I went to his fundraiser in Chicago this past Monday, $500 and up to have lunch, and it was an absolute mob scene both inside and out.

Cain is a media hype.

The media made him and the media will destroy him when the right time comes.

Currently, Romney and his establishment/media buddies need him to keep the conservative field divided but they will cut him down to an insignificant size if the need arises.

TheRightMan on October 28, 2011 at 10:43 PM

Cute but too long.
The Romney one is my fav so far.

That’ll be a short marathon since they only made one movie. There were no sequels! I repeat, there were no sequels!

Doughboy on October 28, 2011 at 10:57 PM

The placement of ebonics in the man’s mouth comes across as racist. I found it offensive.

Yes he does.

Yes.
He.

Danny on October 28, 2011 at 11:47 PM

Here’s what Cain should do: Grab a line from this video, and make it a campaign slogan. He’d wipe the floor with his Repub. opponents, and Obama as well.

“Everybody needs (dramatic pause) toucan stubs!”

or

“I’m going to dance, make love, and fix snacks for the Highlander marathon!”

or even

“Clearly there’s a bad rabbit in this block, and it’s got my pink clown enemies!”

Whoa — I just got chills with that last one.

Of course, if my plan works, we’d end up with an unqualified POTUS, but hey — that’s pretty much guaranteed at this point. We might as well have a little fun with it.

Splashman on October 28, 2011 at 11:52 PM

You mean Cain plagiarized Biden? But . . .

My head hurts.

Splashman on October 28, 2011 at 11:54 PM

He still makes more sense than Obama. Come to think of it, Obama sounds like a vacuum cleaner, probably because they both suck.

NNtrancer on October 28, 2011 at 11:56 PM

Once….amusing.

Twice….tedious:…painful after the first 30 seconds.

I think we’ve more than exhausted this ‘bad lip reading’ thing.

TheRightMan on October 28, 2011 at 10:43 PM

Yeah, the media is really building up Cain. I heard Carville say that Cain was inevitable. All the libs on all the networks have been saying it’s Cain’s race to lose.

And if you believe that, you’re clearly not paying attention, because the media desperately wants to face Romney in this election cycle.

BKennedy on October 29, 2011 at 4:21 AM

Too long but funny, the smile at the end was great.

kg598301 on October 29, 2011 at 7:33 AM

Okay, I went to the BLR site and watched a bunch of them. Maybe it’s because Herman Cain is so likeable, but I liked the one on him the most.

The one on Øbama is pretty good, but in a different way, as implied by its title, “Trick the Bridesmaid“.

I agree this is the best one since Perry’s and these only succeed because of the element of plausibility.

TheRightMan on October 28, 2011 at 10:31 PM

Seriously?? So Romney is the Great Oz behind the curtain. Are you sure it isn’t the States, as they said, wanting to be more relevant in the Presidential process and NOTHING to do with Romney?

Agreed that it likely helps Romney because he actually has an organization in place and is ready to go nationwide…something a presidential candidate should be prepared for. However, Romney is not behind any movements by the States. That is just plain silly.

BKennedy on October 29, 2011 at 4:21 AM

BKennedy,
I think the Dems are playing a little reverse psychology and fear facing Romney because he will put in play A LOT more states than any of our other candidates will and that is a FACT. This worries the Dems and can go after Perry or Cain or some of our other candidates easier. Yes, they will attack Romney but he is the best debater and has command of the facts as you have seen him on stage and will easily whup on Obama.

g2825m on October 29, 2011 at 11:41 AM

Ouch. BLR is losing his touch. This one doesn’t match his lips barely at all. The Obama one matched really well- same with the Perry one. The Michael Buble song he did was spot on.

TheBlueSite on October 29, 2011 at 1:21 PM

Good, but not as good as Romney – “Amy left your party . . . and I’m leaving at three to pick apples!”, “If Madonna, married a real giant, that would be good . . .”, and who can forget, “Your momma’s pudgy, face it!”
