Cain Commercial and Lying Expert

Where There's Smoke, There's Cain: The Hermanator is coming to a tv near you, as long as you want your news fair and balanced, that is. Herman Cain is running tv ads in Iowa on Fox, perhaps, thanks to the $9 million his campaign says it's raised since October 1st (the start of the 4th quarter fundraising period). Cain's campaign features the "smoking tractor", as opposed to the "smoking chief of staff" in his web ads. The federal government believes Cain's campaign is blowing smoke when it claims the EPA is trying to regulate dust farmers' tractors kick up. I remember U.S. Secretary of Agriculture shooting down this rumor during his stop at an Iowa farm earlier this year.

Rick Perry and Ron Paul remain the only candidates on the air (outside of Fox) in Iowa right now.

Cain's people continue to push back on the sexual harassment story. I received this email today from a John Yob. And he used a gmail account, not a campaign account. After a little Google search, I see that Yob works for Cain in Michigan. Here's the email:


I hope you will consider reading this article and watching this YouTube regarding Herman Cain.

Investigator: Herman Cain innocent of sexual advances
By Mike Paluska

Private investigator TJ Ward said presidential hopeful Herman Cain was not lying at a news conference on Tuesday in Phoenix.

Cain denied making any sexual actions towards Sharon Bialek and vowed to take a polygraph test if necessary to prove his innocence.

Cain has not taken a polygraph but Ward said he does have software that does something better.

Ward said the $15,000 software can detect lies in people's voices.

CBS Atlanta's Mike Paluska played Cain's speech for Ward into the software and watched as it analyzed Cain's every word.

If he is hiding something this thing would have spiked way down here," said Ward. "He is being truthful, totally truthful. He is a man with integrity and he talked directly about not knowing any incident he is accused of."

The software analyzes the stress level and other factors in your voice. During the speech, when Cain denied the claims, the lie detector read "low risk." According to Ward, that means Cain is telling the truth.

I am a Cain supporter (surprised, right? LOL) and I've noticed that on various sites a push back from his supporters against his "fanatical" supporters which is where that link and email apparently came from (at least I hope so). Most of us have seen the article and think what most people do..."Hmmm, that's kind of neat! I wonder if it really works?" For we who are in Cain's corner, we don't need "proof". For those who aren't (for whatever their reason might be; to each their own) this "proof" is just silly.

As far as the ad goes...I found it amusing. I also found the other smoking ad amusing. I recognize that, as a supporter, I see these ads differently than the general public might. I'm hoping that the money he's raised will bring more ads to the other stations in Iowa...I'm surpised to hear they're only on Fox right now, actually. And disappointed.
