Herman Cain is an idiot

The businessman and GOP presidential candidate, who was said he wouldn't appoint a Muslim to his administration, now ups the ante:

Herman Cain, a Republican presidential candidate, says Americans have the right to ban Muslims from building mosques.

“They have the right to do that,” Cain said on Fox News Sunday, expressing his concerns with Sharia law. “I’m willing to take a harder look at people that might be terrorists.”

Um, hey Herm -- this the United States buddy. What Americans can rightly do is protest the building of a particular mosque, but they cannot ban them merely because they want to.

The GOP should say an emphatic "no" to people like Cain, quickly and forcefully, and pay more attention to people like Rudy Giuliani:

Rudy Giuliani thinks the Republican party should cease focusing on gay marriage.

Saying that he believed marriage should be between a man and a woman, Giuliani nonetheless told CNN’s Candy Crowley that the “Republican Party would be well advised to get the heck out of people’s bedrooms and let these things get decided by states.

Rudy went on to note that the GOP "should focus on matters like the budget and Afghanistan."

Amen, brotha.

And that puts Cain into the wingnut section with Bachmann who wants to "ban porn". How this is to be accomplished is not clear. How it is defined is also unclear. Herman Cain either does not understand free expression of religion or does not agree with it. Either way he's just shown himself unfit for the office.

Too bad really he seemed like an otherwise sharp guy.
