I’m not really a Herman Cain guy. For many reasons. I like the guy but I just don’t like him as President. At least not yet. But this kind of attack just drives me crazy.

Martin Bashir asks if Herman Cain can spell Iraq.

Now, just imagine if anyone had asked that of Obama.

As Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters fame points out:

For the record, Cain received a Masters degree in computer science from Purdue while working full-time for the Department of the Navy as a ballistics analyst. He went on to be CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, CEO of the National Restaurants Association, chairman of the Kansas City Federal Reserve, and has served on the Board of Directors for major companies including Nabisco and Whirlpool.

By contrast, according to Wikipedia, Bashir studied English and History at King’s College in London; no degree was listed. He has been a journalist ever since.

Remember in 08, if anyone even questioned Obama’s policies, they were accused of racism, never mind his intelligence.

I’m not saying that I want racism charges but, among the media, being a conservative is all the evidence they need that you’re stupid. See Ivy League grad George W. Bush. I just get tired of it. Remember when the media was amazed over the Olympus sized intelligence that Barack “The teleprompter” Obama supposedly had. But it wasn’t intelligence, it was just ego. For them, agreeing with them means you’re intelligent and disagreeing is all the evidence they need that you’re stupid and should be dismissed.
