Well, it's official; former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain has formally launched his presidential campaign today. And according to Fox News "political analyst" Angela McGlowan, if Cain just picks wingnut Rep. Allen West as his running mate, he can beat Obama in 2012.
Alan Colmes explained why he disagreed:
COLMES: Herman Cain... it's not a coincidence that he announced his candidacy on doomsday. This is a guy who said he'd put no Muslims in his Cabinet. He said Muslims want to either convert you or kill you. He's a birther. He has absolutely no chance whatsoever of becoming President of the United States.
McGlowan interrupted Colmes and reminded him that "being that extreme" could win him the primary to which Colmes basically responded, bring it on if that's who Republicans want to run in 2012.
COLMES: If that's who you want to have represent you. You want someone who can win the primary who could never win the general election, if that's the way you want to go, be my guest. Have a good time. Have fun.
MCGLOWAN: If he chooses Allen West, he could win.
COLMES: Absolutely not. Allen West is another cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs far right extremist.
McGlowan also went on to suggest that after the latest Fox attack on President Obama after his speech on the Middle East this week that Hollywood Jews are going to abandon him in droves.
