|Ex CEO of Godfather's Pizza Herman Cain
First, let's talk about his political experience. Well, there is none. That was easy. He's never held any political office. He's absurdly proud of this, going so far as to claim it's a good thing:
Knowing how Washington works isn't necessarily an advantage. As a businessman going in, I don’t want to know how Washington works. I want to change Washington D.C. and so by not knowing how it is supposed to work I can ask tough questions that will help change the culture.That's wonderful. He doesn't want to know how Washington works. Cain apparently thinks that being President of the United States is like being in a comedy movie, where pluck and audacity is enough to succeed at pretty much any task in the world. Maybe he imagines that he's like Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde 2, and that his ignorance of political culture will be just what's needed to shock all those stuffy old codgers out of their ruts and get something done for a change! He's definitely shown that he doesn't have the slightest idea how government works, with bizarre statements about how he'll only sign bills that are three pages or shorter. I guess he just doesn't like to read.
