Politics: Iowa debate: Herman Cain’s favorite poet is Pokemon, apparently

  • A poet once said, ‘life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible, but it’s never easy when there’s so much on the line.’
  • 2012 GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain • In his closing remarks in last night’s debate. “A poet” is great and all, but it’d sure be nice to know who the poet was. Well … this is where it gets fun. See, the “poet” in this case appears to be Donna Summer, and the poet’s muse was — get this — the soundtrack to the modern classic “Pokemon 2000.” And he’s gotten the quote’s attribution wrong before, once referring to it as the theme song to the 2000 Sydney Olympics. (It wasn’t.) Life can be a challenge, indeed. source
