Herman Cain Actually Asked Henry Kissinger to Be His Secretary of State

Henry Kissinger is an old sociopathic war criminal who'd be arrested in most countries for his horrible crimes against humanity — or, as they call such people in Washington, an elder statesman. More importantly, he's one of the few foreign policy guys Herman Cain's heard of! That's why he offered him the job of Secretary of State, hilariously.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is out with another clip from its editorial board interview with Herman Cain, who's asked what sorts of people he'd bring into his administration. I guess this mostly counts as a name-drop?

"Dr. Kissinger turned my offer down to be secretary of state. He said he's perfectly happy doing what he's doing," Cain said, when asked what kind of people he'd like to have in his administration.

Yes, probably because "what he's doing" is BEING 88 YEARS OLD. And really, who wants to relive the '70s? Terrible times. Strife, malaise.
