Cain’s Idiocy Of The Day

From CNN:

Asked by a reporter if he supported the "wet-foot, dry-foot policy," which allows Cuban immigrants to stay in the United States once they get in, Cain responded: "Wet-foot, dry-foot policy?"

The Miami Herald reports that Cain's handlers then intercepted the questioning and rushed Cain away from the press. When he came back later, Cain didn't answer another question about the topic, instead saying, "Gotta run, gentleman," the newspaper reported.

He had an answer for that later in the day.

Later at Versailles Restaurant, located in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood, a reporter asked about President Barack Obama's decision to scale back some travel restrictions to Cuba, to which Cain reportedly said that was a "gotcha question."

Really?  How is that a "gotcha question", Herman?  Because you don't have an answer?

And then….

Surrounded by much fanfare, Cain enjoyed a pastry at the restaurant's bakery, asking at one point with his mouth full, "How do you say 'delicious' in Cuban?"

A supporter quickly answered back: "Delicioso." The word is in Spanish, as there is no "Cuban" language.

"Delicioso," Cain repeated, while still chewing. "Delicioso."

The exchange was caught on a Fox News camera.


And THEN, we get this twitter feed from the New Hampshire Union Leader last night:


Still waiting for the Cain train to arrive for our 10 a.m. interview. #fitn


If Cain is more than 30 minutes late for our interview, is our next one free? #fitn

And finally:

Cain campaign said we'd do a one-hour interview. Then said no video taping. Then said interview only 20 mins. Then canceled. #fitn #winning

No videotaping?  I can't imagine why.
