Cain Just the Latest in a Long Line of American Demagogues
Indecisive people tend to look for decisive leaders - people who will make decisions for them and, in essence, tell them what to do. They don't want details. To them, details are like the fine print at the bottom of a contract: They're put in place by lawyers and bureaucrats who want to pull the wool over their eyes. They don't care what economists with Ivy League degrees have to say. They want sound bites and simple solutions. Enter Herman Cain.

2. Well, in Cain's case, wanna be demogogues.
He's already hurting himself a la Palin, Bachmann, Perry, and company. Instead, the GOP will end up with Mitt.
