OK, so yesterday was Crazy Town, right, with the new Herman Cain allegations and the radio guy with the F-U song, and attorney Gloria Allred and some other stuff. Last night Rachel ran through the roster of operatives connected to the Herman Cain bid, and then she opened her heart to the conservatives we know watch our show because of the hate mail they send:
The Herman Cain art project, which seems to be a conservative cause, which is attracting lots of conservative support, is something that has no campaign staff, right? No substantial staff of its own. It appears to be bankrolled, possibly illegally, by the billionaire owners of the largest privately held oil and chemical country in the country, whose political group, Americans for Prosperity, is run by a former associate of Jack Abramoff.
Hey, conservative voters, I know that you're not my biggest fans, although I know some of you watch because I can tell from the hate mail. Listen, just -- this is meant as advice and I mean it in a big-hearted way. I mean it in a legitimate way.
I'm a liberal. I would love for Herman Cain to be the Republican Party's nominee for president this year. Part of me tells me I should shut up, right? But just as an American, if I'm speaking to you as a conservative voter, I just want you to know, these guys are pros. . . . These guys have done it before. They know what they are doing. They now appear to be reassembling the old team to give it one more try -- and that one more try is you.
Consider yourself informed, duly. Below, part one of Herman Cain as performance art project.
