Cain breaks out in song

(CNN) - During his much-watched appearance at the National Press Club Monday, presidential candidate Herman Cain concluded his speech with a rare performance of singing a gospel song.

The former Godfather's Pizza executive - also a Baptist minister who was featured in a gospel album earlier this year - said he wanted to express the importance of faith in his personal life. Cain fielded questions all morning over sexual harassment allegations, which he called falsely made and baseless.

    What a minstrel.
    Have you NO shame.
    Talk about selling your soul to the devil.
    Even Herman Cain is astounded at how far American right-wing stupidity has allowed Herman Cain to get.
    Believe that.

    OMG! No wonder the teavangelicals approve of him more than Mittens, Herb is nuts.

    Reminds me of a great movie titled "Soldier Story", Mr. Cain is CJ, I love the part where SFC Waters tells the story of when he was in France, and what they did to the fool who fell for it and wore the cape and crown.......

    Maybe he has a future on American Idol. He sure does not have one in politics.

    He's already walking back his denials. I was all ready to admit defeat on my prediction that he'd be gone by the end of October, but I think I might have to double down and make that by the end of November. He was slower to implode than I thought he'd be. Just wait for the campaign finance law violations to start adding up and getting investigated....

    This is how these politicians and people invite religious discrimination against those from other religions who want to serve people through public offices. We call this nation a secular country, but a person seeking office at highest level invite religious discrimination and throws secularism in garbage. This just goes to show how public in general would look at a person from other religion in day to day life. You simply cannot hold an important position in elected office if you are not a Christain. There are few countries that are evolved to accept a person from minority communities and one is far ahead of them all.

    could you imagine if President Obama would have done something like this on the campaign trail in 2008? We might be looking at President Clinton or worse President McCain if he done so. To be honest I like that particular song, but I don't think that it was the right time and place to do so. Song and tap dance is a sterotype we AA's have trying to escape from for years.

    Look how "Godly" I am! Don't even think about those women... Think about your personal relationship with Jesus... no... think about MY personal relationship with Jesus! I'm waaay more religious than those other Republicans who claim God told them to run for President! Ignore the fact that my tax plan hurts the poor... think about Jesus and I paling around.

    When I read quickly the heading at the first place, I thought it was written: "Cain breaks out in tears". Oh! I was wrong. Now he has initiated the campaign choir! Good for him and his supporters.
