“I wasn’t offended that he called me brother. He could have been saying ‘Christian brother.’ That is not a point of controversy. I don’t know why anybody would bother to bring that up. I’ve got a lot of brothers from another mother out there!” —Herman Cain on Rick Perry repeatedly calling him — but none of the other candidates — "brother" during Tuesday's GOP debate. [Politico]
