6 thoughts on “Herman Cain WTFs Barbara Walters”
I laughed out loud even with a case of bronchitis that has left me otherwise voiceless. It says a lot that such a practiced hand as Barbara Walters was so taken aback by his reply that she let her professional facade slip.

I think he looked at all the cabinet positions he could remember and picked the one that seemed easiest. Interior – picking curtains and paint for federal buildings, too hard.
