In the video above, check out republican presidential candidate and Godfather's Pizza founder Herman Cain quoting some inspiring words he attributes only to "a poet."
Life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible, but it's never easy when there's so much on the line.
That poet? Disco siren Donna Summer, singing The Power of One, the theme song for Pokemon: The Movie 2000.
As NY Magazine points out, Cain has previously attributed the lyrics to the ending theme to the 2000 summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia, however that's not true. This also isn't an isolated incident, as he's repeated the same quote a number of times. According to the Bennington Vale Press, Cain owns his love of the movie: "I didn't want to see it, but I did it for the children and the grandchildren. A powerful piece of cinema." For those who haven't seen it, in short the movie is about a greedy pokemon trainer who nearly ruins the planet's climate by refusing to heed the warning of experts. Powerful.
Herman Cain has previously called being gay a sin and a choice and has made the imaginary threat of Sharia law a cornerstone of his floundering campaign, so it's possible that this is actually the most reasonable thing he's ever said.
