Weird campaign videos on parade (updated)

Everybody seems to be ripping on Herman Cain today over a really odd video featuring a guy smoking a cigarette and explaining why he supports Cain. So yeah, the guy’s smoking a cigarette. And he introduces himself as an employee on Cain’s campaign. I’m guessing most of Herman Cain’s staff, and a clear majority of his family, support Herman Cain.

The more I talk about it, the more odd it seems to me, and the more I want to join in the ripping of Herman Cain for the video.

Except that I’d already seen this video for Rick Perry.

Suddenly the Herman Cain “America needs a smoke break” video seems completely normal.

Update: now Colbert’s getting him some.

    I think I’ve figured out the Cain commercial. He’s going after all the people who are tired of being told they can’t smoke in various places.

    The smoking man in the Cain Vid, his campaign manager Mark Block, has been banned from Wisconsin politics for 3 years. That is right, guilty of election fraud – I know you are shocked.

    Oh, and he spent the last 10 years working as the director of Americans for Prosperity, which coincidentally enough, is heavily funded by (drum roll here), the tobacco industry. But I am sure that this is just a coincidence.

    Wow, I’ve never been so un-aroused while looking at boobs.
