2. I thought his name was Herman
I don't know who Herb Cain is, so I am feign to comment on Herb's sanity.

19. This is a play on Ms. Sarah's stupidity...

29. Maybe It Wasn't Stupidity. Maybe It Was A Shot As She Couldn't Be Bothered To Pronounce His Name
Or maybe not. She swore to Steve Schmidt, McCain's campaign director, that it was "Milt" not "Mitt" Romney.

10. I don't know about Herb Cane but Reed Cane is essential
to every oboist, bassoonist, clarinetist, and sax player. Arundo donax is the life blood of woodwinds. Herb is what they smoke before playing, but I never heard of it being referred to as "Cane."

Yeah, I think he's a few notes short of a sonata, but when up on stage with the GOP candidates, he appears "normal."

13. Yeah, he's sane.
Sane like Donald Trump is sane. And the pair of them exemplify the truth once spoken by PT Barnum (a founding father, I think) that There's a Sucker Born Every Minute.
Not crazy. Just contemptible.

18. Wanting to keep repeating the same thing and expecting a different result
Continuing to promote trickle down economics and deregulation and claiming it will help the middle class. Everyone on the debate platform last night is totally insane.

That's "Hey Satan, gimme a call, OK?"

Get it right.

40. He is not clinically insane. If he were evaluated by a doctor I suspect that would be the
conclusion. But that doesn't stop him from advocating a lot of insane ideas.

42. Cain Knows Exactly What He's Doing
It's not for nothing that Herman Cain walks round with a perpetual smirk on his face, regardless of the upheavels that surround him. The fact is that he is not and never really was running for president. As Chris Matthews said recently, Cain is basically the biggest lobbyist in town. He is trying to gain influence in Washington as well as sell his book. And that's it. So is Cain mad? No, not at all. He knows exactly what he's doing. The joke is on those elements of the Republican party and conservative media who are actually taking him seriously as a candidate.

44. Hard to tell. His money isolates him, as it does many presidential contenders...
...and his party's agenda forces him to say stupid stuff all the time.
