Ashy Or Classy?!? - Herman Cain's Weird Campaign Video.

Herman "Daddy Green" Cain declared his intentions to run for The Person Whom Obama Will Soundly Thrash In 2012 last weekend. Subsequent declarations (and mere flirtations) by bigger name candidates have taken some of the luster off Cain's surprising post-Fox News debate bump a few weeks back, so he's asserting his credentials with a new web video.

Look, I'm all for the low budget and grimy approach to getting your name out there. When guys like Romney and Pawlenty are releasing multimillion dollar, Hollywood-style campaign videos, taking the low road might be a good way to stand out. This, however, might be just a wee bit too low budget and waaay too Ashy.

As for Cain, I'm still trying to figure out how to feel about this guy. I admire his humble roots, Morehouse education, and rise to the top of Corporate America by merely working harder than the next man. That's some consummate "Real American" stuff right there.

On the other hand, this dude's straight out of Central Casting For Black Conservatives. He has no original ideas. His whole platform is based on trashing Obama. He plays the self-loathing "the Democratic Party is holding black people back" talking point like he wrote it. And his dalliances with the Tea Party are troubling to say the least. Something tells me Cain, who has been out of Corporate America and running a lousy talk radio show for the past decade, is just using this run for President as a Grand Hu$tle the springboard to a Huckabee-style Fox News comeup. There's no shame in that.

There is shame in this lame video though. Ashy!

Question: Ashy Or Classy?!? What do you think of Herman Cain's chances of winning the GOP nod? What about this video?
