Herman Cain is a black man who knows his place, says MSNBC analyst.
Really, I don't like any of the people running for president. Even Cain seems to be a guy who is deeply entangled with the financial forces that routinely bilk the government out of millions. But, I'll make a prediction.
If Cain manages to win the GOP nomination - if Cain manages so much as to win the VP slot and take on a prominent, Palin-like role - we will see someone slip up on live TV and call Cain a nigger. Someone liberal-left.
Because, there's two sides to the Cain coin. While the some conservatives may love him as the rare black man who is in line with their political ideals, some liberals will love him for the reason that he can be a black man they can "safely" hate. Much like Sarah Palin was the woman those of a particular liberal bend could safely hate. And they will go a bridge too far when in the grip of emotion.
