News and Notes 10/26/2011 (Herman Cain 2012)

Hello world,  it is been quite awhile since I last reached out and blogged.  I have been planning a picture laden recap of Proctoberfest 2011 (my wedding), but I figured in the mean time I would get my loyal followers (LeBron...) back in the loop and introduce our next president.

Herman Cain 2012!
One topic I have avoided (for the most part) in Proctor's Type is politics.  Just to give a little background, I have been a life-long democrat and have voted in every election since I turned 18.  I tend to have a liberal/progressive view on most economic issues as well as a moderate-liberal view on current social issues.  So why am I now supporting Herman Cain, a trickle-downing, pro-life even in the case of incest and rape, social program cutting republican?  Well, I was fortunate enough to catch this ad and it pretty much says it all...

The only way I can get to just how powerful this advertisement is break down my thoughts by the second:
:02-  Wait a second..I thought Herman Cain was black...
:04-  Who the hell is Mark Block?
:08-  This is the first (but not the last) time Mr. Block appears to be winded...
:14-  What is the "chief operating officer of the frenzder mccain"?
:16-  It is hard to see but he is doing the politician thumb thing...should be noted
:17-  "Tomorrow is one day closer to the White House"...this doesn't make any sense
:24- "I really believe that Herman Cain will put united back in the United States of America"...seriously?
:29- "We've run a campaign like no one has ever seen"..for better or worse this is actually true
:32- "America has never seen a candidate like Herman Cain"-
:40-  Winded again, politician thumb thing again...this guys not running right?
:41-  Producer: "fuck it, cue the music and get this guy a half smoked cigarette, we are going to go a different direction"
:41- Why is he smoking?
:44-  This prick is blowing smoke in my face!  Is it some type of new campaign strategy to get a potential voter to loathe the chief of staff?
:44-  I am still in awe that someone would pay money to air a commercial in which some asshole is smoking and blowing it in the camera in an effort to get you to support his candidate
:45-  Oh there he is..
:46- Wow that is a creepy look...
:48-  Still creepy...
:49-  Producer:  "That look is creeping everyone out and we are losing voters by the second!"  Do something to make him smile!
:50-  Producer (holding a picture of occupier being arrested)  "There we go, now he's smiling"
:54-  Producer: "Smile is creepier than stare!  smile is creepier than stare!!!  Shut it off!
:55-  Just FYI here are the lyrics of the "song" in the background:
I am America
One voice, united we stand
I am America
One hope to heal our (inaudible)

Deep...I wonder what American Idol 11th placer they got to sing that?
