"Hey Hermain Cain, how do you plan on dealing with Team Rocket?"

"Gotta catch 'em all!"

Looks like he dropped his balls.

Silly Politicians, our so called "leaders" are all clearly insane. I wonder what his goals would have been as President? Do we have a regional villain team that needs to be stopped?

Some politicians quote the Bible, or Thomas Jefferson.

Herman Cain quotes Pokémon.

It is kind of surreal. I don't quite know what to make of it.

Thats random. First House makes a reference to Arceus, then Herman Cain quotes a Pokemon movie? I guess maybe its not that surprising, Pokemon is pretty widely known, just seems like kind of an obscure reference. Still awesome though.
when was this?

His goal was to get into the top percentage of ALL CANIDATES then win.

As for the regional villan team, that would be the terrorists.

House references Pokémon: link

We could run a separate story on that if you want... not sure if it's terribly notable but it's a quirky little thing.

When I heard about this, my first thoughts were "I can't wait to see what Jon Stewart does with this," and "I wonder if it'll make Bulbapedia's front page."

Also:
To protect the world from devistation.
To unite all peoples within our nation.
To denounce the evils of socialism and communism and health care and abortion and big government and gay marriage and Mexicans.
To extend our reach to the stars above.
Herman Cain!
Michele Bachmann!
Mitt Romney!
Newt Gingrich!
Rick Santorum!
Rick Perry!
Team Republican, blasting off at the speed of light!
Surrender now, or prepare to fight!
Ron Paul, that's right!

Wait, okay, I got this. Maybe he's hoping that by equating himself to pokemon, we will all cry, and our tears will bring his campaign back from the dead.

Did anyone see this on TMZ yesterday? They even showed shoots of Pikachu, as well as from Kanto and the Battle Frontier.

That was mindblowing, wow. The 3 states of matter that he mentions that Arceus created were Solid (Dialga) Liquid (Palkia) & Gas (Giratina).

House should have ran for President, with his slogan being Judgement.

Herman Cain... is Ash Ketchum? ....... I need time to process this.

I guess he was afraid of losing to his rivals and giving them a large chunk of his campaign money. Should have packed more revives and hyper potions.

I saw this yesterday... and recovered today. Between the house reference, this speech, and all the media coverage lapping up on the speech, it was just too much for me.

I'm shocked that Pokemon gets such a public mention in these places as of late.

I'm even more shocked that these are the kinds of mentions that require a fair depth of knowledge and personal experience with the franchise to understand.

I'm with whoever said that this is surreal.

When I heard him say "the" Pokemon movie, I thought he mean the first one. Then I was confused at the quote, because I can recognize most of the "inspirational" lines from it.
