Herman Cain Does a Mean Rick Perry Imitation

Fun fact: Herman Cain likes to open speeches by joking about the stupidity of people who need teleprompters.

With that in mind, try and watch Cain talk to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel without cringing.

On collective bargaining:

Count the blunders! Does he support collective bargaining? "Yes, but not collective hijacking." Did he support the Ohio union reform law that voters just overturned? "In this case, they tried to get too much into one bill." Does he support collective bargaining for federal employees? "They already have it, don't they?" They don't.

On Libya:

MJS: So you agree with President Obama on Libya or not?
CAIN: Okay, Libya. President Obama supported the uprising, correct? President Obama called for the removal of Gaddafi? Just want to make sure we're talking about the same thing before I say yes, I agree, or no, I didn't agree. I do not agree with the way he handled it for the following reason. Nope, that's a different one. I've got to go back, and see. Got all this stuff twirling around in my head. Specifically, what are you asking me if I agree or disagree with Obama [about]?

It's an hour of this stuff.
