In the wake of Herman Cain suspending his campaign for the U.S. presidency today, we thought it would be a good idea to reflect on some of his less-than-presidential comments as outlined by The Daily Beast.
Cain can always be depended on for a “did he just say that” quote. Whether it is suggesting that the U.S. should electrocute people who try to enter the U.S. illegally or his “chocolate walnut” comment, the Herminator never disappoints.
When Sarah Palin wrote Herman Cain off as a “flavor of the week,” Herman Cain balked. He took to The Tonight Show on Sept. 30 to let Jay Leno know that he’s not just a temporary candidate: he’s more substantial, like Häagen-Dazs’s Black Walnut. Maybe Herman Cain hasn’t done his grocery shopping in a while, but according to a spokesperson from Häagen-Dazs’, the black-walnut flavor was discontinued two years ago. However, the flavor did enjoy a four-year term from 2005 to 2009. If only Herman should be so lucky.
