It’s worse to imagine a world with Obama getting a second term than it is to imagine a world without pizza. Because with Obama in a second term, there will be no pizza. For anyone.Herman Cain • Offering up a slice of knowledge with extra cheese during a recent interview in Time Magazine.
In full disclosure, I did win a polka dancing competition when I was in the tenth grade at my alma mater, Anoka High School in Anoka, Minn. But, despite my tenth grade polka success and my lifelong love of ballroom dancing, the recent rumors are false. I will not be joining ‘Dancing with the Stars.’Michele Bachmann • Revealing that, like Herman Cain before her, she’s passing on “Dancing With the Stars”. Odds they get Tim Pawlenty: Even.

suhfeeyah says: A few questions. First, do you know where I can access the full text of Herman Cain's Tea Party rebuttal? I'd really appreciate it. Secondly, I know that a text of what is supposed to be the Occupy rebuttal is floating around. (I found it on Huffington Post.) Do you know if the human mic delivery actually happened and if there's a video? I haven't been able to find anything on the DC movement's official UStream. Thanks so much!
» SFB says: I haven’t spotted a full text of Cain’s speech — I really get the impression, having watched it, that he improvised off a set of notes — but the video’s over here. I’ve yet to see an actual mic check video, but the text is here. So we have a dual-pronged problem: A response without text, and a response without video. Heh. I’ll keep an eye out for both! — Ernie @ SFB
I think Stephen Colbert’s endorsement of me is a marvelous thing. … Keep the youth vote inspired, keep the college vote inspired.Herman Cain • Discussing his “endorsement” from Stephen Colbert. Seriously, we make fun of Cain a lot, but this speech tonight is (and his answers are) pretty good. He did way better than Bachmann did last year. He says he might do some more stuff with Colbert, depending on how things work out schedule-wise. He’s also pitching a site called CainConnections.com, which will eventually pitch “The 9-9-9 Revolution.”
