Bryan Fischer Award Nominee: Herman Cain

Bryan Fischer Award Nominee: Herman Cain June 23, 2014

The Bryan Fischer Award is given to those who display a staggering lack of self-awareness and if I ever create a hall of fame for those who display that trait, Herman Cain would be a first ballot inductee. Get a load of this, but turn off your irony meters first:

Cain also exhorted the half-filled ballroom at Washington, DC’s Omni Shoreham hotel to inform themselves and get active in politics. They needed to get involved because, as he put it, “stupid people [who do vote and volunteer] are ruining America.”

Those in the room need to outnumber those “stupid people,” he continued. “The solution is real simple folks. Those of us who are informed have got to outvote the stupid people. And you have got to become ambassadors of intelligence, ambassadors of information.”

I am not responsible for any damage resulting from your head hitting your desk after reading that. Ambassadors of information? From the guy who said he didn’t care who was the leader of “Uzbeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan” is. The guy who was asked about our policy toward Libya and literally babbled like a moron for several minutes, clearly having absolutely no idea what was being discussed.

Herman Cain is uninformed even for a voter, much less a presidential candidate.
