There's no fooling Janeane Garofalo, she's just too sharp and on top of things to get anything past her. So, it's no surprise that she uncovered the real reason Herman Cain is running for President - someone is paying him so Republicans can say they aren't racist!
"You know what, you can fool some of the people some of the time but you can't fool Jeanine Garofalo any of the time," Pat joked.
"Before anybody else, she saw how racist the Tea Party were, that they were just a bunch of red neck Hicks who were racist and hate black people, all blacks for no apparent reason. She saw that. She saw right through that. The movement of millions of people, she saw them all. Wow. I mean, she's something else. And now she sees this whole hoax on Herman Cain, which is amazing," Pat said.
What did Garofalo say?
"Because he deflects the racism that is inherent in the Republican Party, the conservative movement, the Tea Party certainly. In the last 30 years the Republican Party has been moving more and more to the right but also race‑baiting more, gay‑baiting more, religion‑baiting more. But Herman Cain I feel like is being paid by somebody to be involved and to run for president saying, you can't be racist, it's a black guy, it's a black asking for Obama to be impeached or it's a black guy who is a Tea Party guy. And I feel like, well, wouldn't that suit the purposes of whomever Astroturfs these things, whether it be the Koch Brothers or Grover Norquist or anything," she said.
You got us!
"Grover Norquist is, he's diabolical," Pat said with a laugh.
"He's the world's first trillionaire. And he controls the strings of virtually everyone on this planet. That's how powerful the man is. You don't want to mess with him." (editor's note: none of those facts are true - its sarcasm)
