Seriously Herman, Pokémon??!! In dropping out of the GOP primary yesterday Herman Cain said his previous comments about his the most inspiring thought "Life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible, but it's never easy when there's so much on the line" was actually lifted from Pokémon the Movie 2000. Herman doubled down on that by often bringing up this inspiring ideal on his campaign stops.
People now running for the office of President of the United States are saying Donna Summer songs in Pokémon flicks inspire them. No, doesn't just inspire them, its the most inspiring phrase they have ever heard.
Abraham Lincoln, now there was a guy you could quote. FDR, JFK, of course throw in the boilerplate religious leaders and great philosophers and you've got a pretty good list of 'A' material to work with.
We the people are drowning in Pokémon-thought. We're drowning in dumbed down being celebrated. We're drowning in academics being shunned as "them" and "they". We're drowning in the denial of science. We're drowning in the almost cocky way people deny science (And we give them tax breaks to do it).
This know-nothingism being celebrated needs to end and if those who embrace it need to be shoved to the perimeters of society sobeit. They can watch all the inspiring Pokémon movies they want while they are there.
