The national magazine Newsweek is about two weeks too late in coming out with its “Yes, We Cain!” cover featuring presidential hopeful Herman Cain.
While Newsweek will feature the Atlanta businessman on its Oct. 24 issue with the clever pun on the candidate’s name, WorldNetWeekly came out with a nearly identical cover … on Oct. 9.
WorldNetWeekly, a gorgeous, full-color digital magazine, brings every WND story, column and feature of the week prior to subscribers’ computers through nearly 400 magnificently designed pages, many with interactive and animated options. It’s available for download when you want, as often as you want. And it doesn’t go away the next day – leaving you frantically searching for headlines you previously glanced at but didn’t have time to open.
“It’s also an entertaining package,” says WND CEO Joseph Farah, “complete with jokes, cartoons, crossword puzzles – features that tend to get lost amid the hectic work week. You can take your time with WorldNetWeekly.”
In fact, WorldNetWeekly recognized that Cain was primed to make run for the White House quite a bit earlier, publishing its first “Yes, We Cain!” issue back on July 25, 2010:
Although Cain is a regular, weekly columnist on WND and host of the popular radio talk program The Herman Cain Show, he is perhaps best known as the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza who transformed a company teetering on the verge of bankruptcy into a household word. And as some will remember, Cain is also famous for using the language and logic of everyday business to expose the fallacies inherent in Clinton assumptions about “Hillarycare” during a 1994 televised town hall meeting.
Never elected to public office and without a major money machine behind him, the black conservative businessman is astonishing friend and foe alike as he emerges as a major player in what many consider to be the most important presidential election in modern American history.
In 2008, a relative unknown named Barack Obama secured the Democrat Party’s nomination behind the popular catchphrase, “Yes, we can!”
Cain has likewise come from relative obscurity on the national scene to become a frontrunner in the race for the Republican nomination, surging the once unlikely candidate to post significant leads in many state and even national polls – hence the pun on the last presidential election, “Yes, we Cain!”
