Jimmy Kimmel: Herman Cain Must Pass The Torch To Rick Perry (VIDEO)

Now that Herman Cain has "suspended" his presidential campaign, the comedy community can't help but feel a little bit empty inside. Sure, there are plenty of funny characters in the GOP field, but Cain's level of ridiculousness had something else.

Something special.

We can only hope that whoever Cain endorses (not to mention whoever actually gets the nomination) is as equally fun to mock as Cain. While many people are saying Cain will endorse Newt Gingrich, Jimmy Kimmel showed a new campaign ad Tuesday night that suggests Cain should pass the torch to Rick Perry instead.

Not because of anything remotely policy-related, of course. We're talking election jokes here. In that case, you really can't deny that Perry is number one.
