Herman Cain Tells His Scary Almost-Muslim Doctor Story Again at the Holy Land Experience

Herman Cain
Back when Herman Cain was a nobody candidate early in the election, he got in a bit of trouble when he said he'd be wary of bringing a Muslim into his Cabinet.

He backed off of that for a while. That is, until he made a trip to the Jesus of theme parks -- the Holy Land Experience in Orlando -- to recycle an old scary-Muslim story.

Enter the revival of Dr. Abdallah.

Chris Moody from the Ticket was apparently the only reporter there and got a whiff of what preacher Cain was emitting this weekend:

Cain, a layman pastor and gospel singer, appears right at home as he walks up to the stage in his suit and signature gold tie.

"You all have to forgive me, but this feels like a pulpit and I am a preacher," he says during the talk. "It's just a natural thing when I get into this setting, ya know?"

"Preach it, brother!" a man on the front row yells.

Cain speaks for nearly a half an hour and despite a couple fleeting "999" mentions, keeps his speech to topics of faith and his recent battle with cancer. He begins with a story about how he knew he would survive when he discovered that his physician was named "Dr. Lord," that the hospital attendant's name was "Grace" and that the incision made on his chest during the surgery would be in the shape of a "J."

"Come on, y'all. As in J-E-S-U-S! Yes! A doctor named Lord! A lady named Grace! And a J-cut for Jesus Almighty," Cain boomed.

Then comes the point where he found out his surgeon was named Dr. Abdallah.

"I said to his physician assistant, I said, 'That sounds foreign -- not that I had anything against foreign doctors -- but it sounded too foreign," Cain tells the audience. "She said, 'He's from Lebanon.' Oh, Lebanon! My mind immediately started thinking, Wait a minute, maybe his religious persuasion is different than mine! She could see the look on my face and she said, 'Don't worry, Mr. Cain, he's a Christian from Lebanon.'"

"Hallelujah!" Cain says. "Thank God!"

The crowd laughs uneasily.

It's hard to tell whether the crowd just doesn't like the story or if they think Dr. Abdallah is still an undercover Muslim, but it's still one of the more awkward stories he has.

Here's how he told it in church back in February (it starts around the 5:00 mark):

It's official now. Herman is batshit crazy. The GOP is bringing out all of the loonies for this run. Either they still don't want it or they are secretly promoting Romney as " the sane one ", by parading these crazy people around on the Ship of Fools tour.

Based upon Michele Bachmann, I would not want a Christianphysician educated at the Oral Roberts University School of Medicine touch me.

By the perfect Stalin, Cain MUST be a filthy, KKK, racist!  He mentioned that he was nervous about a Muslim.  All the best people know that you can rip on Catholics, Buddhists, and Hindus and you can ALWAYS crap on any type of protestant.  Jews, Atheists and Muslims are special and anything they do is fine.  If you see a Muslim screaming Allah Akbar and waving a cluster of dynamite sticks, you must never assume he is a fanatic.  He might have ants in his turban and be a construction worker.  Now mind you, Cain didn't say or do anything, but he was having bad thoughts, so he must be a Grand Dragon Nazi or sumptin.

I think Grand Dragon Nazi is a bit much...  Ass clown is more appropriate.

If he gets together with West, then we could have all the antisemite an racists in one spot.  Sad that they are both black yet think they can be this open about it.Wonder if he knows that it was the Muslims who came up with modern medicine?
