Palin: ‘Herb’ Cain Is Flavor Of Month

Sarah Palin dismissed Florida Straw Poll winner Herman Cain as “the flavor of the month” and mistook the candidate's first name in an appearance Tuesday night on Fox News. “Take Herman Cain. Look at why he's doing so well right now. I guess you could say, with all due respect, he’s the flavor of the week,” the former governor of Alaska said. “Because Herb [sic] Cain is the one up there who doesn't look like he's part of that permanent political class - He came from a working class family. He's had to make it on his own all these years. We respect that.” Cain defended his campaign Wednesday morning on CBS/Justin Sink, The Hill, Blog Briefing Room. More here.

Question: What do you make of Herman Cain's surprising polling in Florida? And/or: Are you a fan of former San Francisco Chronicle columnist Herb Caen?
