Either he's the funniest man alive, or he's serious. Herman Cain, who dropped out of the GOP presidential race, said in an interview with Barbara Walters that he wants to be the Secretary of Defense. This from a guy who said he wouldn't need to know the name of the leader of "Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan" or some "small, insignificant states." And a guy who froze for minutes when asked about the Obama administration's military operations in Libya. But give Cain credit for knowing that this is pure fantasy. When asked what cabinet position he would want, he said, "We are speaking totally, totally hypothetical, right?" When he said the head of the department of defense, even Walters, who chose him as one of her "10 Most Fascinating People" of the year, looked stunned and said, "What?"
