Herman Cain told David Gregory this morning that he doesn’t know what “neo-conservativism” is. Some examples of ignorance are so egregious and appalling that they are automatically disqualifying, and this is one of them.
Over and over again, Cain has demonstrated that he has no basic understanding of, or interest in, foreign and defense policy issues. Some Americans aren’t interested in this stuff, and they don’t pay attention. That’s fine, just don’t run for commander in chief.
Some candidates get it wrong, Herman Cain just doesn’t get it at all. If ignorance is bliss, Cain must have achieved Nirvana a long time ago.
