Herman Cain seems to be trying to outdo himself.
This from Yahoo - he was attending a rally at a Christian theme park (you couldn't make it up) and
He made a campaign appearance at a Christian theme-park called “Holy Land” on Friday, and spoke of his elation at the fact that his Muslim-sounding doctor wasn’t actually Muslim.http://www.leftfootforward.org/2011/11/ ... n-derails/
Yahoo! News reported:
He did have a slight worry at one point during the chemotherapy process when he discovered that one of the surgeon’s name was “Dr. Abdallah.”
“I said to his physician assistant, I said, ‘That sounds foreign–not that I had anything against foreign doctors–but it sounded too foreign,” Cain tells the audience. “She said, ‘He’s from Lebanon.’ Oh, Lebanon! My mind immediately started thinking, wait a minute, maybe his religious persuasion is different than mine! She could see the look on my face and she said, ‘Don’t worry, Mr. Cain, he’s a Christian from Lebanon.’”
“Hallelujah!” Cain says. “Thank God!”
The crowd laughs uneasily.
Also in that piece:
Rick Perry has been spreading fear about the possibility of Hamas and Hezbollah – traditionally based in Palestine and Lebanon, respectively – operating out of Mexico.
Talking Points Memo reports:
“We’re seeing countries start to come in and infiltrate. We know that Hamas and Hezbollah are working in Mexico as well as Iran with their ploy to come into the United States,” Perry said.
He continued: We know that Hugo Chavez… and the Iranian government has one of the largest — I think their largest embassy in the world is in Venezuela. So the idea that we need to have border security with the United States and Mexico is paramount to the entire western hemisphere.”
Finally, Mitt Romney has managed the impressive feat of not being able to make his mind up over his own name.
Responding to Wolf Blitzer’s own self-introduction — in which Wolf said “and yes, that is my real name” — Romney began: “I’m Mitt Romney — and yes Wolf, that’s also my first name.”
Except Romney’s first name is “Willard,” and “Mitt” is his middle name.
With almost a year until the election, it’s worth stocking up on popcorn, because this spectacle is not ending any time soon.
