Herman Cain offers the perfect summary of social darwinism

he's also the perfect spokesman for the assholes who want to run the world...
Herman Cain On Occupy Wall Street: ‘If You Don’t Have A Job And You’re Not Rich, Blame Yourself!’

people who think they've come by their wealth, power and position entirely through their own virtue and diligence and are therefore wholly deserving of everything that's come to them are so incredibly full of shit... i know a LOT of diligent, virtuous people and some of them are as poor as church mice... i also know poor folks who are assholes... by the same token, i know some very well-to-do people who are truly virtuous and some who are complete assholes... it's just like i often say about people i've met around the world... everywhere i go, there are truly wonderful people and there are assholes, and it's got nothing to do with race, creed, ethnicity, religion or nationality... there are terrific rich people and there are terrific folks who are unemployed... while i don't know him, i suspect herman cain falls into the asshole category... why else would he make such an incredibly dumb comment...?
