Here's a quick lesson for Herman Cain.
1) They speak Spanish in Cuba, not Cuban.
2) Cuba is an island.
3) If Cubans make it to U.S. soil, they become eligible for legal status.
Why does Cain need these basic facts?
On a visit to Miami this week he munched on a Cuban croqueta and asked with a mouthful of food, "How do you say delicious in Cuban?"
Cain also struggled to answer basic questions about U.S.-Cuba foreign policy accusing one reporter of asking a "gotcha question," according to CNN.
Cain continues to show gross ignorance about the world and human rights. Let's not forget his suggestion that we build an "electrified" fence at the U.S.-Mexico border that could zap to death undocumented immigrants.
Turns out he later said he was just joking. Right!
That's probably what he'll say about speaking Cuban.
I wonder what he thinks they speak in Brazil - Brazilian or Spanish?
I bet if you asked him in which countries they speak Portuguese, he'd say that's a "gotcha question."
It's obvious from his recent Libya gaffe, where he had a giant brain fart before answering the question, that he doesn't understand world events.
If he became president, imagine a trip to the Middle East. He would probably think he'd have to learn Egyptian, Israelian and Tarabian.
Hey I'm just making up words like Cain himself. He joked about not knowing who is the president of "Ubeki-beki-beki-stan-stan."
All of this makes me wonder how he thinks he could be qualified to be president of the United States.
This is without even factoring in the very serious accusations of sexual harassment.
And anybody who calls House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi "Princess Nancy" should be sent to sensitivity training.
Apologies not accepted.
Maybe Cain was brought up at a time when only "American" was taught in school. I doubt he paid much attention in history class. Maybe he studied pig Latin instead.
Cain may think all of this is funny.
I find it frightening, no matter what language you speak.
