For weeks, Herman Cain has been trying to build up suspense for the presidential endorsement he would be giving today at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in Charleston, South Carolina. It would be, he stressed repeatedly, an "unconventional" endorsement. What that meant, nobody had any idea. Would he endorse someone who wasn't in the race? One of his mistresses? A pizza topping?
Nope. Think ... even dumber.
"Here is my unconventional endorsement. Not a candidate seeking the nomination. Not someone that's not running. My unconventional endorsement is ... the people! We the people of this nation are still in charge! That's who I'm endorsing! Because we're the ones that are going to have to lead this revolution. We're the ones who are gonna be able to take our power back. I'm endorsing the people. The people who started this country."
