GUYS! Before you get your ballots all in a knot, I am not making fun of Herman Cain’s political views, his party or his policies. I am making fun of the fact that he quoted the Pokemon Movie theme song in a speech, that he might have gotten his tax plan from Sim City and the fact that he was actually a performance artist who punked the entire nation for like 6 months. I’m not entirely convinced that he wasn’t Banksy.
COMMENTERS: Please write a new campaign speech or slogan for Herman Cain using the cartoon theme song of your choice. Bonus points if you can work in Big Bad Beetle Borgs. Alternately, come up with a campaign platform based on a video game. Will you rid the country of illegal Koopa Troppa immigrants? Will we move to magic, floating coin-based economy?
i wanna be the very best, that no one ever was…
too be honest i never watched big bad beetle borgs
I know you don't want this to get all flamey but… can we all agree that presidential campaigning has gotten really weird?
Yes, these campaigns are quite insane.
The Cain train was on the fast lane.
Much he had gained and he was about to pop the champagne.
For candidacy of Cain had gained free reign.
But the bane of Cain came as stain.
He tried to explain and his position maintain.
But his sins were quite profane and his excuses inane.
Soon his numbers began to wane as he earned the public's disdain.
His popularity went down the drain and soon Gingrich surpassed Cain.
Little of his domain now remain.
Rather than struggle in vain for what he cannot attain,
Modesty did he feign in hopes that vice presidency he may obtain.
And so the campaign of Herman Cain was finally slain.
The whole thing is a god damn circus. I love that British candidates can only campaign for 30 days (I believe) prior to the election.
Doesn't Obama look tired?
I believe it is only 30 days. It's the same way in Canada. The whole "campaign pretty much nonstop" model in the US is kind of bizarre. It is entertaining, though.
I read that as "presidential campaignERS have gotten really weird" which to me seems just as true.
I'm gonna win this race, because I'm a Big Bad Politican. METALLIX!
That's the best I can do with off the top of my head memory, but I did love the hell out of that show as a kid
For rejecting Herman Cain's 999 plan, America truly is out of its mind.
No one rejected anything. He never ran for president, thus his plan was never voted on. Also, lets keep this to funny joke times rather than political rhetoric.
Actually, that was reference to an old Denny's (I think) commercial that ran in the 90's. It had a catchy slogan about the low price of their breakfast combo deal.
Youre thinking of the 5 for 5 tax plan. Families with exactly 5 kids pay 5% income tax. Otherwise individuals pay 80% and people with more than 5 kids are jailed for life. Not to be confused with the 5 Dollar Footlong plan, which is just a great deal on a sandwich.
Keeping politics totally out of this, I'm really sad to see Cain go.
I really wanted to see him go up against Obama and start a speech with,
"Stay a while, and listen!"
Just think, if Herman Cain was half as good for America's economy as Deckard Cain was for your gold stash in Diablo 2 America would be able to buy China! Or at least take a gamble on that really cool looking (and expensive) sword.
"Shredder??? I hardly even knew her! Okay, we were acquaintances, but nothing more."
Cain was obviously worried about the state of the economy this weekend, warning us it was going into "Tailspin".
"Oh, ee ay. Talespin. Oh ee oh. Talespin." Cain shouted from the podium.
"All the trouble we get in with another Talespin."
Now I want to track down old Talespin episodes.
I'm sad that now I won't get a chance to seem his give a moving speech the likes of:
"We make our dreams come true, and we'll do the same for you…when your room looks kinda weird, and you wish that you weren't there…well, Just close your eyes and make believe and you can be anywhere"
Okay, now stop, collaborate and listen. Cain's a man, a man on a mission. He may get knocked down, but he gets up again, and they're never going to keep him down. His crime was being too sexy for his shirt, too sexy for his shirt, too sex-ay, yeah. Sure, he was no Ricoooo Suaveeeee, but when a girl walks in with an itty-bitty waist and that round thing in your face, you get sprung!
Honestly, I thought Cain would be too legit to quit, but his campaign went out like a candle in the wind. It wasn't about race, because it don't matter if you're black or white; everyone can get jiggy wit' it. Now we wonder if we can't find a better man: one who is smooth, an all-star, and smells like teen spirit.
Nice work Steve!
I'd really thought that his Newer Deal- promising fruit under every box, and a power pellet in every corner- would resonate with America. But I guess he was considered too liberal because of his revolving-door penal system for ghosts.
I know Cain is disappointed he never got to send Seal Team Six to eliminate Cobra Commander.
Cain-lalalalalalalalalalalalaalallala! *as he flies around on his hover-chariot, with a lazer pizza cutter*
I always thought it was "Cool but RUDE"… nothing makes sense anymore.
That's OK, I thought it was "Cool but cruel," which never really made sense.
You are correct with "cool but rude." But I'll cut some slack to little boys in the 80s, too hopped up on Cookie Crisp to hear correctly. Because I've been there.
according to several women herman cain "has the touch he's got the power"
Herman Cain! Bouncing here and there and everywhere.
I'd mention that's beyond compare. He is the Herman Cain.
What, like rhyming is so important when the lyrics are mostly nonsense anyway.
Wait, we don't have a magic, floating coin-based economy? My high school economics teacher was so full of shit.
Life is like ol' Herman Cain here in… Muck-burg
Pokemon, 9's and 15 Mins of Fame… It's a Repub-Blur
You might stir some controversy, or fail to understand history
Cain-Tales! Woo Ooo Oh!
Everyday he's out there making Cain-Tales! Woo-Oo-oh!
Tales of Doing Women, Bad & Good Luck-Tales!
D-d-d-danger, watch behind you
there's a lawsuit out to find you
What to do? Just grab onto some Cain Tales, Oo-oO!
Herman Ca-ain! He's our hero! Gonna cut our deficit down to zero! Gonna work to tear asunder . . . government that likes to loot and plunder!
With our votes combined, he is . . . President Cain!
(the irony is that Republicans don't believe in the environment . . . .)
No, they believe the environment exists. They just don't believe that the things in the environment affect the environment.
Like there's naturally-occuring smog in LA. That would be there even if people weren't.
Maybe not but we do believe in proper grammar. Please learn the difference between affect & defect
These types of comments really aren't necessary.
A) he used affect correctly
B) did you just confuse effect and defect?
Sorry Joel, I'll stop. But that just…affect and defect? seriously?
I honestly have no idea what you're talking about. He used "affect" correctly and the word "defect" would be completely inappropriate in this instance. If this is a joke, I don't get it.
I'll just let this go. No need to explain further.
I was just trying to say exactly what you just did 🙁
Sorry, I didnt realize you were not the original replier. I am now so confused Im going to delete this entire comic and set my website on fire.
Burn Krusty Burn! Burn Krusty Burn!
I'm conflicted. I really enjoy your website, but I DO like watching things burn…
It was sarcasm. As in, a JOKE. It didn't really need clarification or analysis.
No one was questioning you. it was @hickkid's confusing comment that… confused people.
Some times the economy
Go slippin' through the cracks
But his new fiscal views
Are pickin' up the slack
There's no bussom too big, no rear too small
When you need a running-mate just call
When there's a tight sweater
Oh no, it never fails
He can’t take a clue
Because of the wheres and whys and whos
YES! I was trying to think of something along the lines of the "Chip 'n' Dale" theme while reading these comments, but you totally won. Well done.
I know this isn't a cartoon theme song, but I found it awfully fitting 🙂
In every generation there is a Chosen One. He alone will stand against the Democrats, the demons and the forces of darkness. He is the Cain Train.
Note how little change was necessary.
I just find it unfortunate that he couldn't convince people that he didn't sleep with that Thundercats HO!
Ok, so it isn't a 90s cartoon, but I couldn't resist.
I had to read the last panel twice before I got the TMNT thing, and it was glorious!
Also, if elected I promise to make it law that every homeless person, convict, and illegal alien be made to carry a set amount of money on their person at all times! So that should they be "removed" by a citizen they will add something society! They may also choose to carry extra articles of clothing when currency is not possible.
