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. Just want to make sure we're talking about the same thing before I say, yes I agree, I know I didn't agree. I do not agree with the way he handled it for the following reason - no, that's a different one. I gotta go back to ... Got all this stuff twirling around in my head. Specifically, what are you asking me, did I agree or not disagree with on what?"
Texas Governor Rick Perry also dropped a pretty epic brain fart on America during a GOP presidential debate last week. More on the here.
