Willing Suspension of Disbelief

December 3rd, 2011

A follow-up to The Cain Mutiny about Cain’s announcement this afternoon.

 

What was is that Herman Cain really intended

When he his campaign for President suspended?

 

Does it mean he’s trying to cook up

A way to re-activate if things start to look up?

 

Does it mean he wants to try to collect delegates

To trade for something valuable, if the shoe fits?

 

Does it mean he just want to keep collecting campaign contributions,

Which seems to be the most important of his supposed “solutions?”

 

Does it mean that Cain just wants more chances, his 9-9-9 plan to rehash?

(Not to mention the chance to collect some of that matching federal cash.)

 

Or does it mean that Cain just wants to save face,

And not leave the race as a total disgrace?

 

That would after all hurt his future speaking fee potential,

For which his supporters’ good will is essential.

 

Given their preconceptions, it’s not hard for Cain’s true believers

To view the lamestream media as liars and deceivers.

 

Against all evidence, they want to believe what Cain said is true—

The things all those women accused him of, he didn’t do.

 

While Cain’s hoping this announcement will provide his campaign some relief,

He’s sure asking his supporters for a big willing suspension of disbelief.

 

It’s not the first time Herman’s tried it, and I’m sure it won’t be the last.

Luckily for him, Tea Partiers have always proven pretty gullible in the past.

***

Here’s Cain’s announcement speech.

 

Our title is inspired by the expression (coined by Samuel Taylor Coleridge) describing how one must willingly suspend disbelief in order to enjoy fiction (and apparently also in Republican politics).
