Herman Cain Likes 'Manly' Pizza, Not 'Sissy' Pizza


GQ talks to Herman Cain about pizza:

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.

  2. "Sissy pizza"? A "manly man" wants meat?

    OK, we've heard about the women -- how long before we hear tell of some underage boy?

  3. A "manly" man isn't worried about what other people think of his pizza topping choices. Mind your own business, I'll eat what I please. And, by the way, a smart person doesn't at every occasion repeat the question back to answer the question like an idiot struggling to conjure a cogent response.

  4. Oh, for the days when presidential candidates had at least mastered subject/verb agreement! "A manly man don't want it piled high"?!

  5. probably not the best public statements to make if you're being accused of sexual harassment-just sayin'.

  7. As someone said weeks ago over at Joe.My.God - Herman Cain is as qualified to be president as Godfathers Pizza is to be Italy.

  8. Where's RICK? I'm sure he'll agree with this.

  10. Spoken like a man who has balloon angioplasty and diabetes in his future.

  11. Doesn't it follow then that manly men are a disproportionate burden on the healthcare system.

  12. He's an embarrassing idiot. To read his name is to anticipate wincing.

  15. He is currently leading in Iowa over the most electable candidate repubs have = Romney

    Even Newt gingrich has picked up some of the "not the mormon" votes in iowa and is now in 3rd place

    Though both loose the general election by double digits when matched against Obama

    & the rickster is polling down in bachman territory 4-6%

  16. We now know the truth - Herman Cain is RICK's father!

  17. He is determined to shore up the ahole vote.

  18. oh wait, new CNN poll out


    Newt jumps to 2nd place amongst nation wide repub primary voters ( a 14 point jump from the last poll)

    Cain is falling hard now (dropped 11 points).....it took a while for the ancient lizard brain of many repubs to finally react to the harassment and assault charges I guess

    strange that the sanctity of marriage peeps are now all for 4 times married and served divorce papers to cancer ridden wife in the hospital The NEWTSTER as the "not the mormon"

    & perry is highest in CNN poll than he is anywhere else

  20. This guy is officially an a**hole. Manly vs girly pizza. He should be as much a health worry as Christie from NJ for his porcine eating habits. This fool should just shut up and go away.

  21. And to think that some people in America actually support this clown. He's running for President? Somebody wake me up from this nightmare.

  22. Godfather's has a veggie pizza. I dare you all to call your local Godfather's and order a "sissy pizza".

  23. Get some real politicians, who has real visions for the future into the game.

  24. I had veggie gluten-free pizza last night (mother is allergic to wheat). I hate to think what Cain would say about that...

  25. I can only imagine what he must think of white pizza.
