Cain Wreck!

Herman Cain finally screwed the pooch today:

In an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel editorial board, Cain was asked whether he agreed or not with President Obama’s decisions on Libya.
The beginning of Cain’s answer then gave the impression that he might have been working from rote memorization — and struggling to remember his lines.

“Okay, Libya,” Cain said — then paused, looking downward. “President Obama supported the uprising — correct? President Obama called for the removal of Qaddafi. Just want to make sure we’re talking about the same thing before I say, yes I agreed, or no I didn’t agree.”
“I do not agree with the way he handled it, for the following reasons — No, that’s a different one. (Pauses) I gotta go back, see. (Pauses) Got all this stuff twirling around in my head. Specifically, what are you asking me, did I agree or not disagree (sic) with Obama?”

Whatta joke this chump is! What an arrogant ass! The man wants to be President, and he doesn't have a clue about Libya. I'll bet he doesn't even know what continent it's on! The Libyan people only just overthrew their dictator after 42 years of tyranny; but I guess it's hard to find that in the newspapers when you only read the sports, the comics, and the stock market tables. (And I don't think Hermie is down with that "internet" thing the kids keep telling him about. "Ain't that just a series of tubes?" asks Hermie.)  It's painfully obvious watching that interview that he's desperately trying to remember his latest foreign policy lessons, and he seems to be as clueless as Sarah Palin in that area. He knows nothing...and I'm frankly outraged that a black man of his generation and alleged education (BA Math, Morehouse College, Class of 1967, MA Comp. Sci., Purdue University, 1971) could be so ignorant. The arrogance I can at least understand; too often people think that competence in one area gives them competence in all areas, a common conceit. But this man came of age in the time of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, and he doesn't know what's been happening in Libya over the last six months? And he thinks he can be the President of the United States of America??

Meanwhile, the ex-boyfriend of Cain accuser Sharon Bialek held a press conference this afternoon to back up Bialek's accusations. Dr. Victor Zuckerman appeared before the press to support his ex-girlfriend. He doesn't have a dog in the fight, and yet there he is, standing before the press, corroborating her allegations. Way to go, Doc! How many more women will come forward, and how many more stories of sexual harassment and assault will have to be made public before Republican primary voters see that this man isn't fit to be dogcatcher, much less President?
