Is Brain Freeze contagious?

Herman Cain needs to do some homework.

Unfortunately, when it comes to answering questions on foreign policy, there aren't to many places where he can talk BS or 999, without it sounding like BS or BS:
Even Rick Perry acknowledged that his brain freeze at last week’s presidential debate was embarrassing. But, Herman Cain’s interview with the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel editorial board on Monday may have topped it.

A video posted by the newspaper shows Cain struggling through the answer to a straightforward question posed by one of the editors who asks: “So, you agree with President Obama on Libya, or not?”

“Ok, Libya,” Cain replies, followed by 10 seconds of silence that the presidential candidate fills by looking down at the table and fidgeting with a bottle of water.

Then Cain turns to the reporters, appearing to ask for their reassurance on two facts: “President Obama supported the uprising, correct? President Obama called for the removal of Gadhafi?” he says. “Just want to make sure we’re talking about the same thing before I say, ‘yes I agree, I know I didn’t agree.”

“I do not agree with the way he handled it for the following reason,” Cain continues, his eyes looking up as if searching for the point he’s trying to make. “No, that’s a different one,” he adds, followed by more silence.

He starts up again: “I gotta go back to — got all this stuff twirling around in my head.”

Seeing is believing:

Where's Rick Perry when you need him?

I could not even watch all of this. It was painful.

Much more painful than Perry's oops!! Later he acts as if he was "just trying to get his thoughts together." Just relax everybody! Good grief!

REALLY?! He needs to be writing his thoughts for his "withdrawal" speech and then his flip flop for not supporting Mitt this time.

I think some of the candidates need to take a week off to get their wits back again.

This stress reaction may be an indication of how the candidates might be as president. Based on what we have seen from Obama who has an extensive support staff writing his response stuff, and is usually not caught off guard without a ready answer. Wait until the real presidential debates are held where difficult spontaneous questions may be asked to see the real Obama.

This was not a gaffe. Perry had a gaffe. Perry had a fully fleshed-out thought going, and then had a brain freeze -- something we've all done.

Cain had no thought, no idea, no plan. He instinctively knew that Libya was important, and that he should say something important about it, but he had nothing to say. Nothing was prepared. Nothing was thought up. He had not mused that much on it. He had nothing, absolutely nothing, and for five minutes that's all we got, nothing.

That was no gaffe. That was his almost complete lack of preparation and inadequacy for the job laid bare for all the world to see.

When is this Cain nonsense going to stop. How much more info do voters need?

Well, at least we got a moment of clarity on Cain: He has 'all this stuff twirling around in his head'.

That pretty much sums up Herman Cain.
