Lawrence O'Donnell utterly eviscerates Herman Cain in about 25 minutes of epic journalism, as he calls out Cain on everything from Occupy Wall Street to the civil rights movement to Cain's apparent ignorance of the material in his own book.  Watch part 1:

More of the interview here (part 2) and here (part 3).  It's gobsmacking stuff.

Cain is so utterly unprepared and weak-minded here that Lawrence is able to just repeatedly blow holes in everything, his positions on the middle-class, race, society, and his "9-9-9" plan which would, surprise!...result in a massive tax break for the wealthy and a massive tax increase on middle-class and poor Americans, including a national 9% sales tax. If Cain can't handle O'Donnell, then he's done.  Hell, he couldn't handle a high school student at this point. EPIC FAIL.
