Presidential Candidates Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain in Phoenix Today -- and We Wanna Grill 'Em. Question Suggestions, Please

Today, Republican presidential candidates Herman Cain and Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann both will be in Phoenix to kiss a little GOP ass/talk about immigration issues.

Bachmann will be puckering up for Senate President Russell Pearce at 10:30 a.m., and former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain will take a knee at the derriere of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio at 3:30 p.m.

Both candidates have said they'll hold press conferences after meeting with their respective far-right-wing-nuts.

We plan to be at both press conferences, much to the dismay of Arpaio and Pearce, we're sure.

We have a few questions of our own for Cain and Bachmann, and have even enlisted the help of Tequila Party founder DeeDee Blase for some additional inquiries.

If the candidates actually spend more than three minutes with the local media, unlike the 180 seconds Bachmann spent with the press during her last Phoenix "press conference," we'll try to grill the presidential hopefuls as much as possible -- and we want your help.

If there are any burning questions you have for either Cain or Bachmann, leave them in the comment section of this post. We'll do what we can to make sure they get answered.
