Herman Cain Has Been Tweeting Out Random ‘Twin Peaks’ Photos

Thankfully, former presidential candidate hasn’t dropped any spoilers

Herman Cain — or whoever is in charge of his Twitter account — is a “Twin Peaks” fan if his Twitter feed is any indication.

The former presidential candidate, who made a name for himself as a Tea Party activist and a Fox News contributor, has been linking out articles from his website, hermancain.com, but with the added bonus of “Twin Peaks” stills.

None of the images contain any spoilers (don’t worry), but it’s notable for how he pairs them up. For a story about an Al Gore comment on global warming, he linked it with a picture of Bobby Briggs speaking with Sheriff Truman.

Another about the healthcare bill features a still of Dr. Jacoby in the middle of recording his Alex Jones-esque live internet conspiracy show.

It’s not just on social media. Cain’s website has these photos as the lead art on multiple news commentary pieces.

Hermancain.com features multiple contributors who write short opinion pieces about media and politics news, but with a distinctive right-wing slant. In a story about Caitlyn Jenner’s possible senatorial run, a conspicuous reference to the “Twin Peaks” character Denise (David Duchovny) is made. The character is transgender and only appears in one episode.

In the piece, the author also links to a video of the scene.

Sometimes the pieces don’t explain the connection to their associated “Twin Peaks” photo, although readers can glean some connections. In the one with the Jacoby lead image, the author talks about conspiracy theories related to Senator John McCain’s recent surgery to remove a blood clot.

This isn’t the first time that Cain has attempted to flaunt nerd credentials. During his final speech, after he suspended his bid for the GOP nomination in 2012, he made a “Pokémon: The Movie 2000” reference.

“I believe these words came from the Pokémon movie. ‘Life can be a challenge. Life can seem impossible. It’s never easy when there’s so much on the line. But you and I can make a difference. There’s a mission just for you and me,” he said.

Spokespersons from the Herman Cain website have not responded to TheWrap’s requests for comment.
