Herminator. Mr. Cain. Herman. Anything but "Herm," a campaign spokeswoman for Herman Cain told the Washington Examiner on Wednesday.
Both Dennis Miller, who endorsed Cain last week, and Sarah Palin have publicly referred to Cain as "Herm" for short. And while it may not be Cain's first choice for a nickname, he's a good sport about it. "I'm sure when he finds out that Governor Palin called him that, he will be fine, just as he was when Miller called him that. Herman Cain is very good-natured and doesn't look for reasons to be upset with people," Cain's spokeswoman said.
