We've brought you regular updates about 2012 presidential hopeful Herman Cain not only because he's the only GOP member to make a strong indication that he's running for president, but also because he's an interesting guy. We bring you this video that fulfills both criteria.
In an interview with CBN's David Brody, Cain decided to get poetic when talking about the upcoming presidential race. According to him, he's looking forward to a crowded GOP field because it will give him the chance to shine. Or, as he says it:
“My grandparents on both sides were farmers. Small farmers. They had just enough farm to raise enough food to feed the family. They didn’t make long trips to the Farmer’s Market so they can make money. They raised food, raised hogs, raised chickens and eggs to live off of. I’ll never forget as a child watching my grandmother churn milk and watch the butter rise to the top. That’s what’s going to happen in this Republican Primary competition. The butter is going to rise to the top because the American people re the ones that are churning the candidates that are there.”
Brody's response is priceless: "You’re going to be the butter guy? You’re the Parkay?”
As someone who grew up in Wisconsin, I can certainly appreciate the analogy.
