    husband aren't embarrassed by him. They know that he is playing some white people, mostly conservatives, for fools, as Palin does all the time.

    My son and husband aren't embarrassed by Cain. And, I am not embarrassed by Palin.

      I don't think he's playing anyone for a fool. When you sit up there in a television interview, and someone asks you a question that you should have an intelligent response to, and you don't, then in my book it's those asking the question who look foolish, it's the person who fails to answer it.

      Palin definitely made a fool out of herself the first time around the ringer also, but IMHO her issue wasn't so much lack of knowledge and experience as it was lack of media savvy, and she has proved a fast learner in that department. Maybe Cain will as well . . .
