During a press conference Monday at The National Press Club explaining the "totally baseless" sexual harassment claims Politico reported, Herman Cain inexplicably broke out into song. The ballad shocked , because, well, how often does a Presidential candidate break out into a gospel hymn at a press conference? While some, including Talking Points Memo, assumed, from the general gospelly tune of the song, that Cain was singing "Amazing Grace," The Weekly Standard's Michael Warren points out, that in fact, Cain was singing "He Looked Beyond My Fault," perhaps a more appropriate title for the moment -- even though Cain claims he has no faults to look beyond. In any case, we can say one thing for sure, Cain has a lovely singing voice.
