[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

>> Stephen: THANK YOU SO MUCH.

PLEASE.

SIT DOWN, EVERYBODY.

I WANT THE THANK YOU FOR THAT

OVATION.

I MEAN THIS IN THE BEST POSSIBLE

WAY, I AM A JUNKIE AND YOU ARE

MY PUSHER.

WELCOME TO "THE REPORT."

NATION, MY GUESTS TONIGHT ARE

BLACK STAR, FRONTED BY LEGENDARY

HIPPITY POPPERS, MOS DEF, YOU

LAMO GRANDPAS OUT THERE, AND

FRIEND OF THE SHOW TALIB KWELI.

THERE IS AN ELECTRIC ATMOSPHERE

IN THE HOUSE, DARE I SAY IN THE

HIZZI.

I'M SORRY.

WHAT'S THAT?

I DON'T DARE.

OKAY.

LET'S EDIT THAT OUT.

MY APOLOGIES TO THE ENTIRE

HIZZIE.

SPEAKING OF BLACK STAR, HERMAN

CAIN.

FOR WEEKS I'VE ASSUMED THE

REPUBLICAN PRIMARY BECAUSE

TWO-HORSE RACE BETWEEN MITT

ROMNEY AND RICK PERRY.

BUT THEY HAVE BEEN JOINED IN THE

TOP TIER BY THIS DARK-HORSE

CANDIDATE, AN EXPRESSION I USE

ONLY BECAUSE HE'S AN UNEXPECTED

CHALLENGER, NOT BECAUSE HE'S A

HORSE.

[LAUGHTER]

NOW, IN THE LATEST CBS NEWS

POLL, THE FORMER GODFATHER OF

PIZZA, THE HARDEST WORKING MAN

IN THE BUSINESS HAS VAULTED TO A

TIE FOR THE FIRST PLACE WITH

MITT ROMNEY AT 17%.

CAIN HAS PICKED UP ALL THE

VOTERS WHO DON'T LIKE ROMNEY,

USED TO LIKE PERRY AND CAN'T

HAVE CHRISTIE.

REPUBLICAN VOTERS HAVE BEEN

REDUCED TO USING THE SAME

CRITERIA AS A 4:00 A.M. BARROOM

PICKUP.

HE HAS A PULSE AND NO VISIBLE

COLD SORES.

[LAUGHTER]

AND FOLKS, THAT IS A GOOD THING

BECAUSE CAIN IS ON EVERYBODY'S

LIPS.

JIM?

>> HERMAN CAIN IS SURGING PAST

RICK PERRY.

>> HE'S NOW TIED WITH MITT

ROMNEY FOR THE TOP SPOT.

>> ONE CANDIDATE CONTINUES THE

RISE TO THE TOP.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HERMAN CAIN.

>> TAKE HERM CAIN.

LOOK AT WHY HE'S DOING SO WELL

RIGHT NOW.

I GUESS YOU CAN SAY WITH ALL DUE

RESPECT THE FLAVOR OF THE WEEK

BECAUSE HERM CAIN IS THE ONE UP

THERE WHO DOESN'T LOOK LIKE HE'S

PART OF THAT PERMANENT POLITICAL

CLASS.

HERB CAIN IS FROM A

WORKING-CLASS FAMILY.

>> Stephen: YES, HERB CAIN IS

FROM A WORKING-CLASS FAMILY.

I WONDER
