This is rich. No other than Mr. Ignoramus, the pizza man himself, Herman Cain, tried to make the case on Fox News that the reason that President Obama won reelection was because 51 percent of the population is severely ignorant. Which 51 percent is that? Well, the 51 percent that voted for Barack Obama in 2012 of course.
“We have a severe ignorance problem with the people who are so mesmerized by his [Obama’s] popularity that they’re not looking at the facts. Martin Luther King Jr. said fifty years ago in 1963 something that is so appropriate to today, “There is nothing more dangerous than serious ignorance”, and that’s what we have and he [Obama] gets away with it…”.
When Fox got rid of Sarah Palin and Dick Morris, there was hope by some that Roger Ailes had finally come to understand that stupid talk by uninformed ‘analysts’ was not the way to go in this new age of Obama. Sure they still had Hannity and O’Reilly and Doocy and Guilfoyle and Bolling and Gutfeld and Tantaros and Varney and many, many more to breathe life into the hermetically sealed Bubble of Ignorance that many on the right call home…but hey, they fired Palin. That was a start to saner times for Fox, wasn’t it?
Apparently not because they turned right around and hired a person who could very well be the dumbest, least informed, most shameless political figure to ever take a stab at the White House – Herman Cain. Herman Freakin’ Cain! Can you believe that?
The man who said, “…when they ask me who is the president of Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan I’m going to say, you know, I don’t know” will now be educating Fox News viewers on foreign policy.
The guy who quoted Pokemon, “A poet once said, ‘Life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible, but it’s never easy when there’s so much on the line‘”, at a Republican presidential debate will be doing deep political analysis on the major issues of the day and Fox viewers will be none the wiser. They’ll be told stuff by a know-nothing doofus and they’ll take in every word as if it were the gospel truth because…well, because they’re Fox viewers and that is what they do.
So for all of you who wouldn’t waste a second of your time watching Fox but would love to recapture some of those crazy magical moments of sheer stupidity from the Republican primary…here’s a little Herman Cain. Enjoy.
