Cain Threatens Democratic Status Quo on Race

Tuesday, 18 Oct 2011 08:54 AM

By Andrea Tantaros

Though he's been a GOP candidate for president for months, it wasn't until he won the Florida straw poll last month and performed adeptly at the Fox News/Google debate in Orlando that Herman Cain caught the eye of millions and started surging in most polls. And now, an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showed him leading the GOP pack.

One can see why. He espouses a Reagan-esque likeability, he isn't stiff or staid and his story of personal success through hard work and determination is enormously inspiring. Growing up in the segregated South, he worked tirelessly to become the CEO of Godfather's Pizza. He knows what it's like to be forced to use a different water fountain than whites. But he also knows that being angry about his past would only hinder his future. The more you learn about Cain, the more you can't help but admire him.

That is, unless you're on the left. Yes, the man who compares himself to black walnut ice cream is giving liberals a brain freeze.
