Herman Cain: Quitting the Race?



I've written several posts about Herman Cain on The UC, such as encouraging people to read the plans on his website and posting a book review of that thing I skim read in Barnes and Noble one Saturday. However, I promise this will be the last post I ever write on Herman Cain (unless by some miracle he becomes president). Anyway, victory does not appear to be on the horizon for the Cain Train. A prime example is Herman Cain announced today that he is undergoing a major campaign reevaluation, and the manner in which this news was delivered hints that it might be a reevaluation headed toward withdrawal.

Cain has been on one of the strangest rides of any candidate. He was not a politician. Instead, he was a self-labeled "problem solver," but he was also the host of a talk radio show focused on politics. He was the one talk jock that actually took a stab at running for president this time around (no sight of Rush Limbaugh, not that that would ever happen for many reasons). I first noticed Herman Cain because of his strong debate performances. People have to be honest; in the early debates, he had the best responses and generated the best reactions from the crowd. This brought two things: the top of the polls and media scrutiny.

As he grew to frontrunner status, the media kept downplaying him, and from the start of his success, they threw out the ideas: "He won't win." "He can't win." "It's going to be Mitt Romney." Those were said so much, it was almost like a sabotage act. He is a person that was faced with at least 6 accusations of sexual misconduct or explicit behavior, yet I doubt that had any scarring on his campaign. Poor debate performances under the pressure of a frontrunner attention are more likely the cause of his dwindling poll numbers. The 999 Plan was rejected by so many on both sides. During the foreign policy debate, he embarrassed himself, and his answers were often variations of "It's not clear," and "I don't know yet."

Anyway, it looks like this man won't be our next president, which sucks for SNL and Jon Stewart. As for me, this is the last time I'll ever mention Herman Cain on The UC. Fellow Contribs of course have their doors wide open. However, you better buy your Herman Cain Merchandise fast before it goes out of style. (See Below).

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

movies you should see: hiroshima mon amour

Hiroshima, Mon Amour this movie has been on my mind a lot lately, due to the recent events in Japan. when I saw it about a year ago, it easily made an impression on me. easily. it was just so beautiful, in every way thinkable. it follows the story of a French actress and her Japanese architect lover, having a conversation together as they lie in bed. the majority of the film is told in flashbacks of their lives in WWII (the film was made in 1959, so there's a ten year gap there). he was directly affected by the dropping of the atom bomb in Hiroshima; she was ostracized due to her involvement with a German soldier. the reason I was propelled to see it was the song "Burning Hearts" by My Favorite- "I was an architect, she was an actress, I drew the Eiffel Tower upon her dress." (really good song too, by the way! RIP My Favorite). luckily, you can find the movie online. here's a portion of it: I HOPE YOU LIKE READING FILMS it's given credit (so I am
