Herman Cain: candidate to huckster

January 30, 2014

carterliverpillsIf you donate money once to a Democratic candidate, you will long get mail from charities and environmental causes. But that is a weak link compared to the close tie between Republican politicians and the direct marketing industry. Herman Cain now makes his money by hawking diet aids for erectile dysfunction and diabetes. His chief editor usefully explains the care taken to make sure Cain endorses only legitimate products:

“I have no reason to think [an advertiser] is not a legitimate company just because it falls into a category a lot of people would snicker at.”

If my father were still alive, I’m sure he’d be on Cain’s list.
