New Adventures of the Compassionate Curmudgeon

In which I tend to rant. A lot. But compassionately...

People Are Stupid - # 4 In a Series

And speaking of Republicans, one of the stupidest Republicans (Herman Cain) made an appearance last night with one of the stupidest blowhards, Bill-O:

"[W]e have a severe ignorance problem with the people who are so mesmerized by [the president's] popularity that they are not looking at the facts.... I still have faith, Bill, in enough people that can wake up and get out of the ignorance zone and we then be able to elect the right kind of people going forward."

As Steven Benen notes:

Herman Cain is entitled to believe whatever he pleases. We are, however, talking about a guy who doesn't know China has nuclear weapons. He said the U.S. can't launch a military strike against Iran because it's "very mountainous." He thinks "Cuban" is a language. Asked about an international military conflict in Libya, he said, "I got all this stuff twirling around in my head." Asked about foreign heads of state, he said he doesn't care who "the president of Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan" is.
