Presidential candidate Herman Cain is the latest politico to suffer a public bout with brain flatulence -- an affliction with which Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is all too familiar.
Cain recently met with the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's editorial board. He was asked whether he agrees with how President Barack Obama handled the uprising in Libya -- and that's when things went horribly wrong for the former Godfather's Pizza CEO.
He responded with the following:
"Libya. President Obama supported the uprising, correct? President Obama called for the removal of Qadhafi.
