“The Rock Me Like a Herman Cain: South Cain-olina Primary Rally.”

Attention world, particularly the South Carolina part:

NEW YORK CAROLINA — For a week now, Stephen Colbert has been calling on South Carolinians who share his values to vote for Herman Cain during this Saturday’s historic GOP primary. Actually, he hasn’t called on all South Carolinians yet; he’s only up to “Brabham” in the Charleston phonebook.

Jr. Exploratory Committee Chairman Stephen T. Colbert said of Cain: “Herman is the only former candidate who truly shares my values. It’s like our values were separated at birth. And our ethics are at least first cousins.”

In support of their non-candidacies, this Friday, January 20th at 1:00 P.M. at the Cistern in front of historic Randolph Hall at the College of Charleston, Colbert and Cain will co-hold “THE ROCK ME LIKE A HERMAN CAIN: SOUTH CAIN-OLINA PRIMARY RALLY.” The area will open to guests starting at noon.

Together, these two unique voices will declare that they are the same man. Indeed, if you close your eyes and don’t listen, they are hard to tell apart.

“As with all my appearances on college campuses, I expect to receive an honorary degree,” said the Peabody Award-winning Grammy winner. “This time, I’m hoping for a Masters of Bachelors.”

Colbert said he wants “all undecided voters to vote for Cain,” adding, “9-9-9.”

    Oh, oh how I wish I could be in South Carolina tomorrow supporting Stephen. I will be there, as will we all, in spirit!
    Also, I love all the promotional photos he did when he was at TDS. Doesn’t he look handsome?
    9-9-9 Y’all!

      You know, I got so distracted by that picture of him, I had to scroll down so I could hide that photo and read the text! And it’s a good thing I read it, because he and his writers are so quick witted, I wouldn’t want to miss any of the quotes. Now, I think I’ll just scroll back up. Uh, oh. I think that Yankee doodle “dandy” just gave me the vapors! ;)

      I’m in North Carolina, which is just a state away! :( I wish they had Ariana Huffington providing buses again. Maybe they’ll stream it like they did the other Rally. *hopeful*

        I really really hope they do…

    It would be great if we had some Hubsters in attendance!! Are any of you, or your friends planning on going to the Rally?

    Rally update!! My friend just sent me a sound bite of Stephen and Herman Cain (I think) leading the crowd in a rousing rendition of “This Little Light of Mine” (which has a particular significance for us). I’m SO jealous of her, yet thankful that she’s there to send missives from the field.

    I’ll just leave this here. “Stupid people are ruining this country.” – Herman Cain

    • Kris

      Ha! One of the few times I agree with Cain, stupid people are ruining this country. The ones running it.

      • Mariana312

        It’s just so ironic when it’s said by Herman “I’ve got all this stuff twirling around in my head” Cain!

        • Kris

          Yes, it always amuses me when I’m forced to agree with someone whose living proof of the point I agree with. ^_^ Life is grand sometimes.

          “I’ve got all this stuff twirling around in my head.” I sincerely hope they stop twirling enough for him to speak coherently some day soon. Could you believe he encouraged The Nation to join The Tea Party? I think most of the crowd had been cheering up to that point thinking he was talking about OWS.

          Thanks for sharing the great quotes!
