"Women for Herman Cain" are Really Stock Photos

In my line of work as a sign designer, it isn't unusual to use stock photos, though I haven't much. Say you need some gorgeous pictures of specific food items for your buffet signs. Stock photos are the perfect answer. But why do so many politicians and political groups use stock photos? It isn't as galling as The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) using Obama rally pictures as their own, but it's close.

I'd also like to point out the badly kerned "Women" script. Check out where the "o" meets the "m". Sloppy.


'Women for Herman Cain' also women for cell phones, laptops, balloons, etc.

Herman Cain has found a way to revive Herman Cain's campaign: "Women For Cain" is an online national fellowship of women dedicated to helping elect Herman Cain as the next President of the United States. "Women for Cain" is also a stock photo festival of the highest order, and we can't resist playing along. . .

  1. As a roving reporter for GG & SMP, da Monkey sent an email to one of the "women" that posted a comment on Cain's Women website. I asked her to verify that she made the comment on Cain's site. She responded to me with...

    "Yes, that is me. I'm a proud wife and mother of 3 supporting Mr. Herman Cain for President 2012!" (Along with a link to Cain's site.)

    I then noticed that the woman's email name was a bit different that what I expected it to be.
    It was "THOMAS".

    With a bit more digging I found out that some of the comments were posted by maxed out donors, volunteers, pro-Cain website operators & Cain promoters.

    Point being... this isn't a group of random women from around America supporting Cain. They are a group of people that call themselves "Cainiacs".

    Just sayin'...

  2. And I gotta agree with Dear Editor... Cain's graphics department leaves much to be desired.

  3. Ginni Thomas, Clarence Thomas' wife?

  4. Stock photos is a task that not only requires space but also planning. Planning in the sense that one should be able to pull out the same image even after numerous years that a client is asking for which you had stored as it was beyond its times. Space and planning has been simplified with the digital era taking on all your problems without much ado.
