Cain on manhood


In a wide-ranging GQ interview a thoughtful Herman Cain presents his views on the nature and expression of masculinity:

Chris Heath: What can you tell about a man by the type of pizza that he likes?

Herman Cain: [repeats the question aloud, then pauses for a long moment] The more toppings a man has on his pizza, I believe the more manly he is.

Chris Heath: Why is that?

Herman Cain: Because the more manly man is not afraid of abundance. [laughs]

Devin Gordon: Is that purely a meat question?

Herman Cain: A manly man don’t want it piled high with vegetables! He would call that a sissy pizza.

  1. You realize that from now on, everything he says sounds dirty! 🙂


  2. Just another reason why I have difficulty associating Herman Cain with credibility … and I’ll vote in the Ohio Republican Primary!


  3. SISSY PIZZA!? I for one don’t like meat on my pizza. DEAL WITH IT, HERM!

    And Moe, you’re right. It does sound dirty when Mr. 999 says it.


  4. I can see it now. In his first reception for members of the Saudi royal family, President Cain will offer his guests pizzas loaded with sausage and bacon. Veggies will not be an option.


  5. I’m not sure the Saudi royals would be invited, given that he has ruled out Muslims as appointees.

    On the pizza, it was a cheeky answer to a cheeky question, but if you’re running for office: you should likely be more bland, a mild cheese.

    Obama’s looking better and better, or rather he’s looking like the only viable contender, unless Mitt pulls it out.
