Herman Cain; New Clown of the GOP?

Herman Cain's 999 tax plan is incredibly stupid and regressive. Replacing the Federal Income Tax with a flat 9% Income Tax and a 9% national sales tax would insure that the 1% being protested by Occupy Wall Street pay less tax while guaranteeing that the bottom 20%, who spend most of their income on consumption goods, would pay a lot more. Currently, sales tax can be deducted from Federal Income Tax, but that would end under 999.
This is a stupid plan born of ignorance and arrogance.

 999 is 666 upside down, and that factoid is as relevant as Herman Cain. Exhibit A:

Taking a great song and butchering it while wearing gospel garb is the act of a buffoon, not a serious presidential candidate. But it is something I would expect from a Black Man who kept his head down and headed for the back of the bus during the Civil Rights movement.
