So who, exactly, is the political base/constituency of Herman Cain, the black Georgia businessman now running for the Republican nomination? He just won a Florida Republican 'strawpoll' this weekend, beating out Rick Perry at the last minute (apparently Perry didn't show up).
Of course, I like him a lot personally. He's funny and glib, almost a comedian. I'm sure that he was a pretty good businessman and sold lots of pizza. But no way will he ever get closer to the White House than he is right now.
Herman Cain is going nowhere fast. His time in the sun will be even shorter than Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry. He's just another conservative Republican flash-in-the-pan.
