Nobody gets off THIS train, pal!
Blog Guy, I know you’re closely following the race for the Republican presidential nomination. I’m a little surprised you haven’t chosen a Quote of the Week yet for last week.
It goes to candidate Herman Cain, who told reporters, “When people get on the Cain train, they don’t get off.”
Wait. He said what?
But doesn’t that make this so-called Cain train sort of like that Eagles song, “Hotel California,” where “You can check out any time you like but you can never leave”?
So you suppose the Cain train just keeps hurtling along at breakneck speed, with terrified passengers pressing grotesquely distorted faces against locked windows, wondering if they’re ever going to see their families again?
That pretty much how I picture it, because, “When people get on the Cain train, they don’t get off.”
Hmmmm. Do you know anything more about the Cain train?
I’m pretty sure it doesn’t have a “Quiet Car.”
