But Is He Elect-Abel?

What is it with the GOP that the guy who was their nominee for President last time around and the guy who may have won the first debate in this year’s contest have surnames referencing the Biblical First Murderer?

John McCain’s last name references, at least, the “son of Cain”, but Herman Cain comes from a family just outright named for Adam and Eve’s more bloodthirsty son. Sins of the fathers and all that but you’d think it would bother the more religious of the party base. Do they have to get a campaign line with the prefix “666” or something?
