Visualizing the ‘twirling’ in Cain’s head


Herman Cain doesn’t seem bothered by his now infamous pregnant pause on Libya.

“I’m not supposed to know anything about foreign policy. Just thought I’d throw that out,” he recently said on the campaign trail, according to Politico. “I want to talk to commanders on the ground. Because you run for president (people say) you need to have the answer. No, you don’t! No, you don’t! That’s not good decision-making.” Thanks for clearing that up.

Earlier in the week, Cain’s spokesman played down the gaffe, saying “it just took him a while to gain his bearings” after burning the midnight oil on the campaign trail.

In the video, Cain took his precious time answering a pretty basic question on Libya. He stalled for more time by saying, “I got all this stuff twirling around in my head.”

The cool kids at Buzzfeed tried to visualize those twirly spinny things and came up with this hilarious video involving pizza guys tossing dough and cute kittens.
