The Hermanator’s got a book deal.

Herman Cain, a Republican running for president in 2012, has inked a deal to write an autobiography published by Simon & Schuster. The book “Who is Herman Cain?” is set to be released in October, according to the publisher’s website. (Herman Cain loses top staffers)

A spokesman with Simon & Schuster did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Cain, the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, has never held elective office before, but has a loyal following among conservatives. He is still largely unknown, something the book publisher likely hopes to profit on as he garners more excitement for his candidacy.

    The book should be titled, “I will never be president so let me cash in now”. Palin can be the co-author.
