Herman Cain was just joking about joking about an electrified border fence
Be sure to tip your waitress, folks. He’ll be here all week…

Cain has spent the last several days  explaining a controversial comment about building an electrified fence  along the U.S. – Mexico border that he said could kill people trying to  enter the country illegally. On Sunday, he said his comments  were “a joke.” But talking to reporters here after a meeting here with  Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who has made a national reputation  for cracking down on illegal immigrants, Cain reversed course.
Initially Cain apologied when told his  remarks had upset some in the state. “Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea culpa,”  he said, using the Latin formula for expressing contrition. But when a  reporter challenged his description of his comments, saying he didn’t  seem to be telling a joke, the retired pizza executive acknowledged:  “You’re right.” He said he still believes in the need for a border fence  “and it might be electrified.”
Herman Cain acknowledges his electric border fence idea isn’t a joke after all

Also not a joke:

Republican presidential hopeful Herman  Cain has cast himself as the outsider, the pizza magnate with real-world  experience who will bring fresh ideas to the nation’s capital. But  Cain’s economic ideas, support and organization have close ties to two  billionaire brothers who bankroll right-leaning causes through their  group Americans for Prosperity.

      Again, under the mountain bunker nails it. Herman Cain is scary and so very the republican flavor of the week.
