Herman Cain’s Web ad: Is it real?

Hmmm. Where to begin. Herman Cain, who will launch radio ads across the country Tuesday, is also out with what appears to be a call-to-action Web ad, a video posted to his YouTube channel about a week ago that is just getting noticed.

A few questions come to mind....

1. Why is Mark Block, Cain’s campaign manager, smoking a cigarette?

2. Why is Mark Block blowing cigarette smoke into the camera?

3. Why is Mark Block on camera?

4. Who is holding the camera?

5. Why did anyone think this was a good idea?

6. Why is Herman Cain smiling?

7. Are we being punked?
