His name is Cain

If you're the praying type, would you please include my hero Herman Cain in your prayers? He was recently diagnosed with colon cancer and will be undergoing surgery soon.

Regular readers of this site know how much Herman Cain means to me. Whenever I'm disenchanted with politics and politicians, whenever I think they're all the same and nothing matters, thinking of Herman Cain makes me remember that there are very real exceptions. If you've never listened to or met the man, get his books, check him out. He's just so special and different. As I wrote when his U.S Senate race came to an end:

If you work or volunteer in politics, I hope you will someday have the opportunity to work for someone that you admire as much as I admire Herman Cain. He is a breath of the freshest air, he is honest, direct, engaging, brilliant, funny and very, very real. He will never forget your name after meeting you. He will never try to pretend to be something he isn't. It takes guts that I can barely understand to do what he did down here in Georgia. He shaped the debate, his opponents ended up using his language and positions as their own. He is a force, if you ever have the opportunity to hear him speak, go do it. You will never forget it. You will not be the same when it's over. I know he will do great things and I will be watching closely.

Be well, Herman. I'll be praying for you.

I love Herman from his Godfather's Pizza days.
He is a wonderful leader and an inspiration to all. He will beat this.
