Herman Cain got word in early October that a Washington Post/ABC News poll tied him with Rick Perry for second place. The presidential hopeful responded to this news with a racially tinged metaphor comparing himself to ice cream. “Black walnut isn’t a flavor of the week,” he said. At least we can't say he's cliche. He could have easily gone the other route which would have been to say, once you go Black...you know the rest.
