The performance of Atlanta’s own Herman Cain during last night’s Republican presidential debate is sending political opinionators buzzing.
After the debate, Fox News aired discussion between veteran political consultant and pollster Frank Luntz and a focus group.
Members said that before last night, they didn’t know much about Cain. Afterwards, most of them loved him.
Luntz was bowled over.
"Something very special happened this evening," he concluded.
Not bad for a man who has never held elected office. Cain, a former Godfather’s Pizza CEO and local radio talk show host, lost his 2004 bid for Senate during the Republican primary. A lot of Americans still don’t know who he is.

His record: One Half True, two Falses and one Pants On Fire.
