Have you missed Herman Cain?

The one-time Republican presidential hopeful is back and on the road.

Herman Cain's presidential campaign may be no more -- but don't panic! It's not the last we've seen of him. During a Fox News interview on Wednesday night, the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza announced plans to launch a bus tour to promote the "9-9-9" plan that formed the cornerstone of his short-lived campaign.

Calling it "Cain's Solutions Revolution", Cain explained that after he announced his withdrawal from the presidential race, the biggest response was from supporters urging him to keep the dream alive (much to the surprise of everyone listening). He vowed to tour the country to rally congressional support for the plan which seeks to replace the federal Tax Code with a 9 per cent corporate tax, 9 per cent personal income tax and a 9 per cent national sales tax

"You know what comes after a tea party?" he asked interviewer Sean Hannity. "A revolution. It's time for history to repeat itself." We hope that's not your own history you're referring to, Herman.

Watch: Lame Bernie brocialists boo mentions of Hillary Clinton as they’d rather have Donald Trump for President

Ardent Bernie Sanders fans unsurprisingly feel privileged enough to denounce the prospect of a Democratic win at the Democratic National Convention.

Some Bernie Sanders supporters at the Democratic National Convention have taken it upon themselves to boo every time Hillary Clinton’s name is mentioned.

Even when the tortoise-man messiah himself was endorsing her for President in a speech, they kicked up a fuss, leading to Sanders’ campaign team sending out texts and emails begging supporters not to protest on the conference floor.

Your mole’s particular favourite is the guy in the above video shouting “NO NO NO NO” over and over again, the strangled battle-cry of centuries of loser bros against the disgusting idea of liberal female leadership.

The predominantly white, middle-class, brocialist contingent clearly couldn’t care less whether there is a Democrat in the White House to stick up for the rights of all the people their preferred candidate purports to defend.

Also revealing of their wilful privileged blindness to those who would actually benefit from a Democratic win was the anti-TTIP chanting during a speech by African-American congressman Elijah Cummings promoting racial equality.

If your own intellectual fury about a trade deal that hasn’t even happened yet is more important to you than listening respectfully to a black Democrat addressing the floor about fighting discrimination, then maybe Donald Trump is the man for you after all.

I'm a mole, innit.
