A leader, not a reader

So, it's official. The Herman Cain campaign is just a parody, apparently. I mean, what else can you think when he takes his slogan from The Simpsons Movie?

From TPM:
Herman Cain has a new response to the media fallout over his bungled answer about his Libya policy.

Susan Archer of ABC News reports that Cain declared at a campaign event in Nashua, New Hampshire: “We need a leader, not a reader.”

Corroborating the reports that this is something Cain…actually…said, Steve Peoples of the Associated Press also reports Cain saying that knowing every detail is not important: “We need a leader, not a reader.”

So it turns out that Ronald Reagan isn’t Cain’s only political role model — his other is the fictionalized “President Schwarzenegger” from The Simpsons Movie!

I'm a reader myself, so Cain isn't going to get my vote with that message.

More importantly, I tend to think that our president should actually know something, maybe even about the president of Ubeki-beki-beki-stan-stan.
