Kudos to Herman Cain

Posted: June 7, 2011 in Uncategorized

I don’t have a horse in the 2012 race yet.  There are a couple of candidates, however, that I like.  One who I am liking more and more is Herman Cain.  I love the fact that Herman Cain isn’t a part of the broken political system, I respect his willingness to speak his mind, and when it comes to economic policy there is probably no candidate I like more (like Cain I am a huge fan of the Fair Tax).  Now I can add another reason to this list – Herman Cain says he would have no problem appointing an openly gay person to his administration.

What is even more impressive is that Mr. Cain didn’t say this in front of a gay audience or even a gay friendly audience per se, no, he made this statement at an event hosted by the socially conservative advocacy group Family Leader. 

In response to a question about whether he would have a problem hiring an openly gay person, Mr. Cain didn’t hesitate, he said “Nope, not at all.  I wouldn’t have a problem with that at all.” 

Cain went on to say that he would want “qualified” people who “believe in the Constitution” so “I don’t have a problem appointing an openly gay person.”

Kudos to Mr. Cain!

    And his first words to his new employee?

    “Congratulations, and welcome aboard! And, please, don’t even think about marrying someone of the same sex, getting health benefits for your partner, adopting children, or joining the military while you’re here. You’re a brilliant strategist, and I’m sure you’ll have no trouble stopping your sinful behavior and making the heterosexual choice if any of those aforementioned activities are of interest to you.”
