That is Mark Block, Herman Cain’s chief of staff and campaign manager, in the campaign’s latest ad. Very DIY. Block is pretty composed for someone who is clearly ad-libbing on their cigarette break and who appears to be the kind of guy who carries a flask for emergencies.
The ad was posted to Cain’s official YouTube channel.
This plus that pizza song indicate that Cain and his campaign are cornering the market for “zany class clown GOP candidate.” They’re like that kid in high school who wore sneakers with his lavender tux to prom.
Meanwhile, Cain has bested Mitt Romney by four points in the latest CBS/NYT poll.
