Herman Cain really doesn’t know what the hell he is talking about. Like Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and the bunch, he’s so internally inconsistent in everything he say’s that he can’t even give a clear statement about whether he believes there should be a “balance” of toppings on a pizza, or an “abundance”:
Alan Richman: I like a crunchy crust. You just want the meat piled on?
Herman Cain: No, no, no. We balance the ingredients to achieve what we call “a harmony of flavor.”
Alan Richman: This sounds like a Republican platform.
Herman Cain: [laughs]We don’t just throw stuff on there. We actually test, “Do you have too much sausage? Too much beef?” Because we want to balance the flavor out. So it is more scientifically developed than it might appear.
Chris Heath: What can you tell about a man by the type of pizza that he likes?
Herman Cain: [repeats the question aloud, then pauses for a long moment]The more toppings a man has on his pizza, I believe the more manly he is.
Chris Heath: Why is that?
Herman Cain: Because the more manly man is not afraid of abundance.[laughs]
Devin Gordon: Is that purely a meat question?
Herman Cain: A manly man don’t want it piled high with vegetables! He would call that a sissy pizza.
First he makes up some crap about a “harmony of flavor” and warns that you don’t want “too much” sausage on top of a pizza. Then, he immediately makes an 180 and claims that in order to be a “manly man” you have to have an “abundance”.
I guess we shouldn’t really be surprised that he can’t get his foreign policy facts straight when he can’t even give a clear message about pizza.
