OP-ED: Bill Maher, Janeane Garofalo Explain the Herman Cain Anomaly

As one who has been duly (and innocently) impressed by the education and business experience brought to the presidential fray by candidate Herman Cain, I find myself in a deep depression, approaching excessive misery, after learning that my admiration for the feisty entrepreneur is actually an attempt to cover-up latent racism and disregard for any and all black people.

The ‘real’ me was abruptly exposed by Bill Maher and Janeane Garofalo, professional comics who apparently moon light as practitioners of Abnormal Psychology.

Although they acted separately, both of these gifted clinicians reached the same conclusion: The mere notion of any Republican supporting any black candidate without malice of thought was just about the most hilarious thought in the whole damn universe.

And when said Republican is also a member of the Tea Party, the hilarity is simply awesome!

As reported at the reference, Garofalo ignored President Obama’s call for ‘toning down the rhetoric,’ in American politics, with these soothing words:

“Herman Cain is probably well liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican party. Conservative movement and tea party movement, one in the same.”

Thanks much for that intelligent contribution to the debate, Janeane!

Your analysis is so profound that it will surely be used by scholars as a basis for explaining the irrational ObamaMania that spread throughout America in 2008.

How else to explain the election of an inexperienced community organizer with no discernable experience or accomplishment, with a Muslim name, and with an obvious disdain for America, than by conceding that “White liberal quilt” was to blame?

Garofalo’s liberal do-do was echoed by Bill Maher who vented about Rick Perry and Cain:

“Rick (Perry) started talking, and he sounded so dumb that now they’re even considering voting for a black guy.”

Maher said of Newt Gingrich, “Let me put your unpopularity in context for you – you’re a Republican and you’re polling behind a black guy”

Once again, a liberal genius has helped clarify the ebb and flow of racial politics.

Indeed, Maher’s biting commentary helps one understand Obama’s dwindling support among African-Americans.

Namely, Barack is so bleeping incompetent that even blacks are considering voting for a white guy!

To assure that a repeat of the Maher- Garofalo meltdowns does not occur, perhaps black candidates should show a little professional courtesy and ALWAYS run as Democrats, just as God intended?



John W. Lillpop blogs from his home in San Jose CA and he knows that African-Americans were traditionally Republicans until FDR won the 1932 election. Democrats wore the sheets in the South and elsewhere (Atlantic City, Oregon, Indiana) and excluded blacks from their party.
