Herman Cain, Atlanta radio show host and tea party darling, hints at 2012 presidential run

That weird sound you heard over the weekend was every Metro Atlanta tea partier's head exploding. Via the Daily Caller:

Former Godfathers Pizza chief executive Herman Cain says he’s definitely forming an exploratory committee — likely within the next several weeks — to test the waters for a possible Republican presidential run in 2012.

Cain, a radio talk show host and favorite of the Tea Party movement, confirmed the news in an interview with The Daily Caller. He suggested that a presidential campaign is likely, but said he hasn’t made a final decision.

“Bottom line is, all of the indicators and all of the benchmarks that I had laid out and we had laid out as a team are all moving in the direction of yes,” Cain said. “We haven’t gotten there yet, but we’re moving in that direction.”

Newt Gingrich has also teased that he'll launch a presidential campaign. If he and Cain both join the race, that'd mean we have two Georgia boys dukin' it out — along with Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, possibly Sarah Palin and God knows who else — for the GOP's nomination.
