Cain "Jokes" About Electrified Border Fence
Herman Cain, the newest Republican flavor of the week, told those attending a Tennessee rally yesterday about his response to a someone who had challenged his pro-border fence position on his call-in radio show. Cain said he responded:
When I'm in charge of the fence, we going to have a fence. It's going to be 20 feet high. It's going to have barbed wire on the top. It's going to be electrocuted, electrified," Cain said. "And there's going to be a sign on the other side that says it will kill you."
Today on Meet the Press, he said he was joking: [More...]
That's a joke. I've also said America needs to get a sense of humor. That was a joke, okay?
Is anybody laughing? Cain is headed to Arizona tomorrow, to meet with Sheriff Joe Arpaio -- the second such meeting in three months.
On abortion: He's not only against it, he opposes it even in cases involving rape or incest. "There are other options" he said today on Meet the Press.
On Face the Nation last week, discussing the Wall Street protesters:
[He] call[ed] the protesters “jealous’ Americans who "play the victim card” and want to “take somebody else’s” Cadillac.Here's his op-ed in the New York Post on the topic.
Cain will be gone soon. Since no one took him seriously, no one bothered to vet him. That's coming soon.
