I’m not supposed to know anything about foreign policy. Just thought I’d throw that out.
Herman Cain to a Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reporter while on his campaign bus on Monday (source: Politico)
My first thought: WTF?
My second thought: Herman Cain is absolutely right. If he were running for President of the United States, he would need to know something about foreign policy, but he’s not doing that. He’s simply on a book tour and he’s using the Republican party’s nomination process to promote that tour. It’s a good thing for Cain that one need not understand anything about foreign policy or government in order to sell books.
