Herman Cain's "Incredibly Tasteless 9/11 Video"

Herman Cain's "Incredibly Tasteless 9/11 Video"

So says Alex Pareene at Salon.com. I don't know but I'll take his word for it. I wasn't able to bring myself to watch more than the first 30 seconds.

And yes, that is Herman Cain (the amateur gospel singer) singing. Reports are he did it in one take, almost as if this garbage was something to be proud of..

So, Joe Scarborough only produced the second-grossest 9/11 "tribute" video I've seen this week. Herman Cain's presidential campaign produced this monstrosity, in which Cain croons "God Bless America" over footage of the 2001 attacks and their aftermath.

Just a warning: If you don't want to see graphic images of the events of 9/11, including multiple shots of the second plane hitting and the towers collapsing, don't watch this video. (Also, don't turn on your TV this entire weekend.)

I don't even know what to say. I guess Cain can now brag that he's a former pizza magnate and crass exploiter of tragedies for political gain.
