BET: The curious case of citizen Cain

Republican candidate for the presidential nomination, Herman Cain,

Before Herman Cain fades into obscurity, there'll be a big final exit interview with BET. The network announced it Monday, and promised this'll be the only one HC does. Called the Curious Case of Citizen Cain - apparently The Cain Mutiny was already trademarked - and I hope interviewer Emmett Miller asks him about the Pokemon movie quote. It is airing at 9 p.m. Thursday.

The description: Cain talks in-depth for the first time to the black audience about what he calls "scams perpetrated on blacks" by liberal black leaders, his fiery brand of black conservatism, and the sex scandals that drove him from the Republican presidential race. BET News retraces his unconventional rise to the top of the GOP presidential field, and his dramatic political descent. This half-hour special is part of a series of BET News specials the Network will produce bringing an African-American perspective to the 2012 presidential-election cycle.
