Does he know he's in on the joke?
Herman Cain took his train to a Stephen Colbert rally at the College of Charleston in South Carolina. The comedian (Colbert) and Cain (the other comedian?) took to the stage with such introductions as "the Indiana Jones of opportunity zones" and his "brother by another mother."
Cain tried to keep it serious - talking his standard 9-9-9 line and discussing the deficit. Wrong crowd. They were looking for comedy.
Politico reporting "Bring back Colbert!" was shouted by a someone at the rally.
Why then did he try and go to this rally? Our NOWists asked Herman Cain that minutes before his Colbert Comedy routine.
