Herman Cain, Save Your Campaign. Shut Up!

Like Rick Perry, Herman Cain's worst political enemy is his mouth.   Once he opens that, gibberish pours out, decidedly unpresidential gibberish.

Herman has told the world that China is a threat because it is actively seeking nuclear weapons, oblivious to the fact China has had a nuclear arsenal for a scant half a century.   Then the pizzaman couldn't explain whether he supported the Libyan opposition that had ousted Muammar Gaddafi.  The best he could come up with was a rambling, incoherent explanation that Obama hadn't handled it right and he would do better.

Herman Cain apparently realized his Libyan gaffe had been serious so he wasted no time setting the record straight by claiming the Taliban and al-Qaeda are about to become part of the new Libyan government.

"Do I agree with siding with the opposition? Do I agree with saying that Gaddafi should go? Do I agree that they now have a country where you've got Taliban and al-Qaida that's going to be part of the government?"

I don't know, Herman, do you?

Proof of Mark Twain's observation that "if you keep your mouth shut people will only think you're stupid. Open it and you prove the point."

His latest response to Libya issue is 9-9-9. Go figure.

It confounds me how Cain's traits; incurious, lazy and ignorant; the very pitfalls that so ruined America in the first decade of this century, are so blithely accepted by so many Americans. Like Perry, Cain repeatedly shows himself profoundly unqualified to be his country's president, yet he remains as a credible candidate in the nomination race.
