Since this is unsubstantiated rumor day here on DU, I wanna start one.
Over the last 2 days, there have been several posts that call GOP Presidential hopeful (haw!) Herbert Cain, "Herb" Cain.
Of course typing Herb is easier than typing Herbert, but I'll reject that line of reasoning for this one: Calling him Herb is a blatant attempt to make him more popular with the pot lobby. Why do you think smoke and winking is a big part of his ads? As soon as I discover a blog post spreading this rumor, I'll post more. If I am wrong and this gets locked, remember, it is Eric Holder or Obama's fault.

6. Sperbert Herbert doesn't work ...
Sorry, it's Herman ... Spermin' Herman, really ...

and those are the women who had enough courage to come out and face their attacker, despite all the attacks they knew would come.

I wonder how many have kept their mouths shut ... or their legs open ... do you think we'll find a little Junior before too long? A la Das Governator ...

17. Don't call him "Sugar" Cain -- else he'll accuse you of harassment!
And he knows all about that!

16. You'd have to be blitzed to vote for him, but I think he's a Herm, not a Herb. nt

19. Well... I got it*
Made me chuckle and pass it on, too.


*For those missed it:

A couple of months ago Sarah Palin referred to "Herb" Cain as "the flavor of the month"... it was funny then... also and so forth.

20. Herb is indeed similar to Hermann.
I use the same wordplay when I talk about Sarah Palin. Instead of calling her Sarah, I call her "damn stupid dingbat".
