Reporting from Charleston, S.C.â€”
Herman Cain seems to be having something of a Sarah Palin moment.
The retired pizza chain executive, who enjoyed a brief but intense flash of political fame last fall when he shot into the lead as a Republican presidential candidate, thrust himself back into the spotlight Wednesday with an “unconventional” endorsement in the GOP primary race.
“Here is my unconventional endorsement,” he said in an appearance at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in Charleston, S.C. “Not a candidate seeking the nomination, not someone that’s not running. My unconventional endorsement is the people. We the people of this nation are still in charge.”
Cain dropped out of the presidential race amid persistent allegations of sexual misconduct. At the time, he promised he wasn’t going away. Now he’s back.
A leading tea party organization announced Thursday that Cain would deliver the tea party rebuttal to President Obama’s State of the Union address next week. And he will appear Friday at a rally hosted by satirist Stephen Colbert, who is taking his act to South Carolina in advance of the first-in-the-South primary.
To be fair, it was Colbert who baited Cain back into the spotlight.
