Is this for real? If so, these are the worst commercials I’ve ever seen…
I must confess, I knew very little about him before Gloria Allred got involved. Ever since, Cain’s been busy dodging allegations of improprieties and extra-marital affairs on a nearly daily basis.
But, regardless of alleged bad behaviour, I was always confused as to his appeal with Republican voters. He seems very aloof, and – dare I say – daft. After seeing one of his promotional commercials, I was even more puzzled.
I didn’t quite understand what to make of the cigarette ad. It seemed to be really odd for a man running for the Republican nomination. But then, I saw another one of Cain’s “commercials”, and was left even more confounded. Entitled “He Carried Yellow Flowers” and running at almost four minutes, is odd.
This man, who for a time was the front-runner in the nomination battle, produced two of the worst advertisements I’ve ever seen. I was left even more horribly confused as to his appeal.
I was confused until I saw a Rachel Maddow’s take on Cain’s campaign, in which she calls it a “performance art piece.” She references the fact that he quoted Pokemon in the debate, and used SimCity’s tax structure as his financial blueprint.
Is Cain’s campaign performance art? I don’t know, but Maddow might be on to something because frankly, I don’t have any other explanation for Cain’s zany antics.
