How do you pick which Republican presidential candidate to support? They all say they hate Sharia law—but they'd probably all immediately hire al Qaeda members upon being elected to office. All of them—except for Herman Cain.

Cain, the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza ("A Pizza You Can't Refuse"), told a Think Progress reporter that he wouldn't be comfortable appointing a Muslim to a position in the federal government, because of the "creeping attempt" to "gradually ease Sharia law and the Muslim faith into our government."

"This is what happened in Europe. And little by little, to try and be politically correct, they made this little change, they made this little change. And now they've got a social problem that they don't know what to do with hardly."

Yes, what happened in Europe was that too many Muslims were appointed to government positions. Too bad! It used to be so nice to visit, before the social problem.
