How cheesy is this? Herman Cain, the former CEO of Godfather Pizza, is exploring a presidential run on the GOP ticket.

Herman-Cain-e1285310115272.jpgCain has caught the attention of conservative activists influenced by the tea party movement who aren't bothered by candidates who have succeeded in business but have never held a public office.

"He's creating quite a buzz," said former Iowa Republican Party Chairman Richard Schwarm. "He is someone Iowa caucus-goers are going to take very seriously."

Cain, 65, from suburban Atlanta, has visited Iowa several times recently and will return to Des Moines on Monday for a conservative forum. Cain likely will express views similar to other speakers, including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, but he'll offer a vastly different resume.

Yes, he's a black teabagger. Knowing that Cain's political views are close to Santorum's makes it easier to understand why their pizzas always tasted like shit.

You took the words right out of my mouth. Their pizza was God-awful. On a good day.

But I do love a good far-right catfight. Let the games begin.
