Proving yet again that the campaign for the 2012 Republican nomination is just a macabre circus of cruelty that will permanently diminish us as a species, Herman Cain yesterday proposed building an electrified border fence to kill Mexicans who try to enter the U.S. illegally. I guess the Great Wall/alligator-infested moat plan was just too candy-assed.
Update: Cain said this morning on Meet The Press that his proposal was a joke. Ha Ha Ha! Oh, Herman, you are a panic!
Fuck off, autocrat.
Update II: Cain now says that he wasn’t joking. Which is it, you goddamned clod? Reasons to take you seriously were scarce enough yesterday…
