Hermanator Hates on READING. Touts Illiteracy.

Reading is apparently NOT fundamental (or fundamental-IST)  enough for Herman (the Hermanator) Cain, who remarked yesterday, in New Hampshire, "We need a leader, not a reader".  He said this defending his ignorance of foreign policy, geography, and the names of world leaders.  Yeah, F*CK reading, with all those confusing squiggles and squoggles all over the place!  Who wants to read about the president of "u-beki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan" anyway?

People instantly noted the similarity between the Hermanator's line and the Simpson's episode where Schwarzenegger says, "I was elected to lead, not to read".  Herman, however, failed to deliver his line with the requisite thick Austrian accent, thus reducing the comedic effect considerably.  And here I thought Herman's main similarity with Arnold is that both of them got sued by Gloria Allred for sexual misconduct.

This would seem to confirm, yet again, Rachel Maddow's theory that Herman Cain's entire campaign has been an elaborate, inside joke set up to punk Republican voters.  Furthermore, IT WORKED, with Cain being the FRONT RUNNER in the Republican Primaries until he was felled by an apparently not so funny sex scandal, and relegated to a distant THIRD PLACE. However, for Republicans to still consider him a serious choice shows what low, no, and slow-information voters they actually are.  I still have Republicans clicking on my blog entries from September and October about Cain, as though these were "breaking news".   

Of course, at least they are reading something, unlike their new CHAMPION OF ILLITERACY the Hermanator.  I guess fundamentalists will have to start listening to the audio version of the Bible, since reading is now too uncool for school.
