Now that Herman Cain has suspended his bid for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, he seems ready to admit that he borrowed liberally from ‘Pokemon: The Movie 2000′ during a speech (no joke). That has to be the strangest political confession of all time.

Cain admitted that he drew inspiration from the theme song to the animated movie during the Republican primary debate in Iowa back in August.

During the debate, Cain cited a “poet” as having said, “Life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible, but it’s never easy when there’s so much on the line.” Turns out, this is a lyric from a song written for the movie by “poet” Donna Summer. Oops!

Well, at least Cain now has plenty of time for ‘Pokemon’ battles on his Nintendo DS.
