If you’re going to be a nut, your past as a reasonable person will come back to haunt you

Wake up people! Owning a part of the major banks in America is not a bad thing. We could make a profit while solving a problem. 

That’s Herman Cain, firebrand candidate for the GOP presidential nomination, defending TARP a few years ago. Lately, he’s been making a reputation for himself by saying crazy things in a way that makes them sound like common sense. I hope his followers forgive him for once holding a measured and reasonable position.
