Dan Drezner Announced the Trumpies
Herman Cain has earned a nomination in a new award as proposed by Dan Drezner:
Named in honor of the erstwhile presidential candidate who really likes to name things after himself, the award can be earned by either a presidential candidate or one of his/her foreign policy minions. To score a Trumpie nomination, the person must satisfy two criteria during a single statement or exchange. First, the nominee must display a breathtaking ignorance of some bailiwick of American foreign policy or world politics. Second, the nominee must do this while simultaneously demonstrating supreme confidence in the factual and/or analytical rightness of their statement.
Drezner nominates Cain as based on his “right of return” comments. If you have not seen the actual comments, I recommend surfing over and watching the video and reading the commentary, as it is spot on.
And, if there was a domestic edition of the Trumpies, Cain would get a nomination for his Declaration/Constitution mashup that I noted yesterday, as it fits the criteria set down by Drezner perfectly.
Update: Earlier I forgot to tip the hat to OTB commenter Steve for pointing this out.
