Via JSOnline, Hermie Cain blows it while talking to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel‘s editorial board about Libya.

Wow. No seriously. Make that sham wow, oh em gee, and holy crap. This man wants to be commander in chief?

Oh wait, no. No he doesn't. He wants to sell more books and make more money speaking to adoring crowds with a collective affinity for pizza.

"Okay, Libya...."

Tick, tick, tick...

"No, that's a different one..."

Tick, tick, tick...

(Video added) "Do you think I'm dumb enough not to study up on these issues?"

"I got all this stuff twirling around in my head..."

"Specifically, what did you ask me....?"

"It's not a simple yes, no..."

"I would have done a better job of assessing..."

"I'm not criticizing him... I'm a much more deliberate decision-maker is the point I keep coming back to... "

See, he can't make a statement because he needs all the facts, see, because he's a thinker, not a hedger!

UPDATE:

See that video up there, Hermie? The one that includes all the "context" you could ask for?

Guess that 3 am call would be a real problem for you then, huh?

    This is so frickin' funny!  This guy needs to go back to selling pizzas for $9.99.  He needed a nap?!?!  No, he simply did not know ANYTHING about Libya and was stalling and trying to get the interviewer to give him a hint what President Obama did so that he could claim he would have done the opposite.  Loser!

    It's a great movie and I recommend it at least once a day to everyone I know!

    Does he realize that the job is 24/7, just the way President Obama discharges it, and not 9-4 M-F like the previous "occupant"?

    Tea Party - Idiocracy parallels abound.

    Mike Judge's movie never was distributed, my guess in no one would touch it because it insults everyone as it should.

    President President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho would fit right in with the GOP klown car debates.   And TP mythology is very close to the Brawndo claim that plants want electrolytes not water like from a toilet.

    Bless  his heart, he could not keep all those furrin countries and their evil dictators straight in his big ole head.
    Never mind, he will have advisers for that.

    Question: "Do you agree with Obama about Libya?"

    Cain's answer: "In what respect Charlie?"

    He is the gift that keeps on giving. I dare the Republicans to pick him as their nominee.

    Talking with any intelligence, nuance, or coherence demotes one to kook status.

    Okay, if anyone, in their right minds (which is questionable in the Republican Party) can still support Herman Shame after this crazy answer deserves a free ticket to Libya to live out the rest of their lives... DG

    You can see the the wheels spinning in this guys head trying to get all the talking points straight.That's the trouble being briefed by spin masters and not keeping up on your own. I'm surprised he didn't have them on 3x5 cards.

    Hermie The Clown should put on one those big, red clown noses to match his big, red clown tie. Since nobody with any sense could possibly take him seriously, we could just play along with him..........you know, and laugh at the various punch lines.

    "A fag"? Excuse me?

    He needs to assess, and think about something, especially a foreign policy issue?

    That sounds too close to "nuanced" for T-baggers, they want promised or implied violence.  That is the red meat they want.  Cain's talk is eating the vegetables.

    IOW he is talking like a fag.

    Every time he has to deliberate, the announcer from SpongeBob should intone his maudlin "Several Hours Later..."
