It’s a pretty good rule of thumb that if you are about to disparage someone’s intelligence, the very least you can do is to spell-check your work. The folks at Fox Nation apparently don’t subscribe to that rule, thus making an already hilarious pronouncement by pizza magnate Herman Cain even funnier. That’s the opening item in this little collection of foolishness from the Fox News community website, Fox Nation.
Starting out the fool’s parade is Herman Cain, who spoke at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority conference last week. This is an affair produced by Christian Coalition founder, and Jack Abramoff accomplice, Ralph Reed. The competition for “Most Ludicrous Comment” is stiff at this conference that hosted rightist luminaries like Michelle Bachmann, Ted Cruz, and Rick Santorum. It’s the classy sort of gala where one can find Obama figurines in urinals. But it was Cain who came away with the zinger of the week:
“I have even heard people say, ‘Well I don’t vote because I don’t know what’s going on.’ And I say good. Stupid people are ruining American and I’m glad some of them stay home. The solution is real simple folks. Those of us who are informed have got to out-vote the stupid people.”
Exactly! What this nation needs is more people like Herman Cain deciding America’s fate at the polls. After all this is the man whose encyclopedic knowledge of the world gave birth to the state of Uzbeckibekistanstan.
