It’s Raining Stupid

Herman Cain is the gift that keeps on giving.

JOURNAL SENTINEL: Would you favor a military strike against Iran to stop that country from developing a nuclear capability?

CAIN: That is not a practical, top-tier alternative and here’s why. If you look at the topography of Iran. Where are you going to strike? It’s very mountainous. That’s what makes it very difficult. Secondly, that would be a decision that would need to be coordinated and discussed with our friends in that part of the world like Israel. But for the United States to unilaterally go in and attack Iran to try and stop them, I would want to consult with the intelligence community, the commanders on the ground in that part of the world, which I have stated before. But we should — I don’t have all the information necessary to make that decision.

It isn't practical to attack Iran because Iran is mountainous! Not because it would cause a region-wide backlash, another regional war that we would have to borrow money from China to pay for, and cost innocent lives.

Serious question -- Is Herman Cain deliberately saying stupid things as some kind of exit strategy for leaving the race?

The GOP candidates are doing irreparable harm to the party, with each subsequent front-runner imploding right before their eyes. And I'm not sure if conservative voter enthusiasm will ever recover following this primary season, even in the face of our Socialist-in-Chief.

    Maybe they should asked him if we should attack Ubeki-beki-beki-stan-stan.

    Did you see the clip making the rounds today? He’s learning to speak “Cuban” (!)

    On top of all that Bob pointed out in his post, why would the country being mountainous matter if we were going to have air strikes on specific targets? I can’t imagine we’d be sending in ground troops.

    This guy is too dumb to be in public office. I wish they would ask him real questions that are relevant to him. Things such as, “do you believe pizza is actually a vegetable?” These are the things he is qualified to answer, nothing more.

    Never attack non-flat countries.
